Registration Details

  • Name: ThunderSync
  • System Name:  thundersync
  • Type: non-GNU software and documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v2 or later (GPL v2)


Allows to synchronise Thunderbird's addressbook with external directories/files. Right now, only vCard version 2.1 is supported as export file format.

Most information of Thunderbird's addressbook is translated into the vCard format. Untranslatable stuff is coded as X-MOZILLA-PROPERTY:PropertyName;PropertyValue. Contact fotos are processed, too.

Other Software Required:

Mozilla Thunderbird, MPL-2.0/GPL-2/LGPL-2.1, https://www.mozilla.org/thunderbird/

Other Comments:

This extension is already hosted as XPI file at https://addons.mozilla.org/thunderbird/addon/thundersync/

Due to user requests I'd like to be able to manage bug reports and provide a repository.

The "tarball" is a XPI file (native format of Mozilla extensions). XPI files are just ZIP archives holding all the source files, therefore it should be similar to a tarball. But of course I can create a traditional tarball if neccessary.

Tarball URL:
