I was skeptical of this to start as to sync with Google I had to create my own Google console app. In fact the instructions were clear, and I was able to link to this account without problems.

It takes a bit of time, but it's better than copying csv files around.

Thanks for Your review!

Thunderbird freeze on initial sync with Google People API, not recovering. 4600 contacts, 60 groups.
On google API console only very brief connection, thread eats whole CPU core but seems not connecting to Google API.

Thanks for Your review.

For Your issues, please open specific tickets on GitHub, so I can better handle them.
The first however is a well-known one. Until a newly-written version comes out, You can mitigate the situation by unchecking the "Include system groups" flag.

Marco.
I'm always the first a-hole to complain. Therefore I need to be the first with the praise as well. You did a good job with the documentation "How-to-Do"! In a situation like this one it is essential that users actually can understand the setup procedure. Google is a bitch but you gottem!

Thanks a lot for Your review :)

Just installed and - Wohoho! This was complicated.
However, following your step-by-step, I got it working on the first attempt!
NICE!

Thanks for Your review.

Unfortunately, creating the Google credentials is complicated - but there isn't much I can do about that...

Thank you Marco.
Now during the sync Thunberdird freezes too :P.
So I'll wait... because I'm not the specialist you are :D

Thanks for Your review.

I suspect some mistake when creating the credentials. Could You please check step-by-step and try again?

Thanks,

Very good and useful tool! Why 3 stars? Because during the sync Thunberdird freezes!!! Can you resolve it?

Thanks for Your review.

Yes, Google-4-TbSync is still in its early releases, and this is one of the issues.
I think it could be circumvented by using the "workers". But this would be a major rewrite of the code, and I'm waiting for another one to happen first (i.e. migrating to the WebExtensions API).

Eventually, it will be fixed and synchronizations will be possible in the background. But I can't tell You when.

In the meanwhile, You can speed things up a little by unchecking the "Include system contact groups" and "Use verbose logging" options.

Thanks,
MZ

Excellent !!
A bit complex to configure the API credentials. However, the step-by-step guide is well explained. So, it may be done.

Important suggestion: Please in the first step of the guide, explain well how to add the Google account. The icon displayed in Thunderbird is too small to see. Anyone can get stuck in that

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.2). 

Thanks for Your review, and for the advice too: I will add it to the TODO list and it will be done as soon as possible :)

I would like to thank the author for stepping into the void when G-Contact-Sync was dropped without warning. I was planning on using this plugin but found a better way with TB 91.

In the address book select File > New > CardDAV Address Book

This linked directly with my Google Contacts account--you put in your G-Mail address.

You can then select that address book once it's installed and right click Properties and rename it.

There is also a "read only" option in the setup which I'll use when I provide this link to others.

Again, thanks for your efforts!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.1). 

Thanks for Your review!

Yes, TB now supports the CardDAV protocol natively.
Which, however, wasn't an issue because there were other TB add-ons providing CardDAV support.

The problem is that Google itself doesn't fully support it: there is no support for contact groups (aka labels), although I admit I haven't tested recently.

So, my add-ons plans to provide full support, groups included.

Thanks,
MZ

Excellent piece of work, thank you. I'm using v0.2.1 with Thunderbird 78.14 and it is seamless.

I install it with TB91.
It's seems that sync doesn't work with contact with no mail, ie i have "use fake email" activate, this contact doesn't appear in the list with the google label.

16/10/21 After contact with Marco Zanon, he spends time to help me ... and now all my contact are correctly synchronized.
Thanks

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.1). 

Thanks for Your review.

If Your contact doesn't have an email address, enabling the "Use fake email addresses" should work.
If not, please contact me privately.

Great, but...
In Thunderbird 91, it makes crashing Thunderbird AND the computer ! ! !
In Thunderbird 91, there is the sync addressbook originally. But it doesn't sync groups (only contacts).
Google--4-tbync is able to sync all (contacts and groups). But in TB 91, it makes freeze Thunderbird AND computer for looooonnng time (about a hour and half...).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.1). 

Thanks for Your review.

However, as this is the first report of this kind, I'd like to know more about. How many addressbooks did You test with? How many contacts and contact groups?

Please open a specific issue on the GitHub page.

Thanks,
MZ

Great to have a replacement gContact.sync. Hope the "full" version will come soon. Syncing a 1,000 address book took less than 10 Secnds! Works well with TB 91.0.1

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.1). 

Thanks for Your review.

The full version will probably come by the end of the year. I must wait for TbSync to rewrite most of its code.

If You have huge addressbooks, You could experience bottlenecks when upgrading. This will improve in the future...

Erro 401: invalid_client
Client missing a project id.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.8). 

Thanks for Your review.

Did You create the project credentials first, as stated in the documentation?
If not, it will obviously not work.
If yes, could You please provide additional information?
