Thanks For All Your Feedback
Yesterday I worked up the courage to submit this project to Hacker News under the usual Show HN format. I was pleasantly surprised by how positive the feedback was overall. It was especially heartening to confirm that I’m not the only person out there who would be interested in using a command line address book!
As a result of all the attention that came flooding in, questions were asked and answered, bugs were reported and fixed, and features were suggested and implemented. It was a really fun day.
The elephant in the room is obviously sync functionality at this point. Lots and lots of people have made it very clear that even though they think this project is a great idea it is useless in the extreme to them unless it can sync with their GMail or iCloud. Rest assured that this has not gone unnoticed.
