directoryassistant - user friendly ldap addressbook frontend


Directory Assistant is a small application for managing a LDAP address book. The focus is to create a very easy to use program, with only the few but necessary features. The target is novice users that need to keep their addresses in an LDAP server.


Configuration is done by config file. Since novice users anyway don't know how to configure LDAP access, I decided to remove that from the GUI. The config file should be at /etc/directoryassistant or ~/.directoryassistant and should have the format:
[My Ldap Server] ldapurl = ldap:// base_dn = ou=department,ou=People,o=someorg
extended options are:
bind_dn = cn=someaccount,o=someorg bind_password = yourpassword add_dn = ou=myunit,ou=department,ou=People,o=someorg ldapversion = 3 startup_search =
