Live Lookup for OS X Contacts / Addressbook


Is there a way to configure Live Lookup to query an Addressbook hosted on a OS X Server?


Hi Mike,

I’ve never tried that, but if PHP can access that then it should be possible. We’ve never seen any examples of that though.


I have tried (in vain so far) to get PHP access to Contacts, but never have seemed to get it to work either. How about Daylite 4 (from Marketcircle)? I am able to import my contacts there – could that be synched up? I have no experience with Daylite 4, just started playing with it yesterday.


I’m not really sure, PHP can make command line calls with exec so possible if it provides some API that would be possible, but we’ve never worked with that app.
