Cozy Contacts

Cozy Contacts makes your contact management easy. Main features are:

  • Simple UI
  • Contact tagging
  • Contact notes
  • VCF import
  • CardDAV sync (it requires Cozy Sync)


We assume here that the Cozy platform is correctly installed on your server.

You can simply install the Contacts application via the app registry. Click on the Chose Your Apps button located on the right of your Cozy Home.

From the command line you can type this command:

cozy-monitor install contacts


You can contribute to the Cozy Contacts in many ways:

  • Pick up an issue and solve it.
  • Translate it in a new language.
  • Allow to share contacts
  • Allow to subscribe to a CardDAV Contact Book.


Hacking the Contacts app requires you setup a dev environment. Once it's done you can hack Cozy Contact just like it was your own app.

$ git clone
cd cozy-contacts
$ npm install


Run it with:

$ npm run watch

The watch task starts 3 daemons:

  • the server one, running coffee-script server-side code through a nodemon process that reload the server part each time you make a change
  • a node-inspector process, that let you use the Chome/Chromium devtools applied to your node process and debug it directly in your browser
  • a brunch watcher which recompiles and reload through browser-sync your front-end app in your browser each time you make a change

It also ensures that the client dependencies are well resolved.


Build Status

The build is a part of the publication process, and you'll probably never need it explicitly. If you want to build you app anyway (e.g. to deploy it in a sandboxed cozy for tests purposes), you can achieve a build by running:

$ npm run build

Please, do not push your local builds in your PR, as long as we make the build process when we release the app.

If you need to run the tests suite to your build:

$ npm run test:build


NOTE: In order to run the tests, you must only have the Data System started.

A tests suite is available. You can run it with:

npm run test

Feel free to adapt/fix/add your own tests in your PR ;).


Tests data are loaded by cozy-fixtures. A NPM script is pre-setted to help you to load fixtures.

Contacts fixtures are generated through the Mockaroo service, so you need an API key to use it (create an account on the Mockaroo service and use the api key provided in the my account page)

$ MOCKAROO_API_KEY="your_api_key" npm run fixtures


Running tests requires a Vagrant. Tests load a Dovecot instance in a Vagrant virtual machine. Make sure your Vagrant box is running, then run:

$ npm run test:server

Contribute with Transifex

Transifex can be used the same way as git. It can push or pull translations. The config file in the .tx repository configure the way Transifex is working : it will get the json files from the client/app/locales repository.

If you want to learn more about how to use this tool, we invite you to check the transifex tutorial.
