    Phone control software

    Hi Guys,

    For several reason I have decided to implement my own linux based phone control software, as yet it is unnamed.

    I'm leaving this wide open for now...anyone want to throw feature requests or suggestions at me?

    My own reasons for doing this are non car oriented, but I'm going to be using a 7" TS for the interface so it's all the same really.

    Ok, here's what I'm planning for the first version.

    1. Phonebook
      • Sync (phone as master)
        AT command based sync complete, I'm using currently using OpenLdap as the backend since almost all mail clients support LDAP phonebooks, I will add plugins for direct sync to some popular mail clients when I'm done with core functionality Aditioanlly OBEX will come later, and will most likely come from existing projects.
      • Add, delete, update
        I'll implement this as a reverse delta sync, which means read phone, compare with LDAP, push changes if any
      • Number clasification (Home/Cell/Office)
        Works well for SE phones, I will have to check with other models to see how this information. OBEX to be added here too.
    2. Call
      • Call from addressbook
      • Display incoming call and answer
      • Dial a number from keypad
    3. SMS
      • Read PDU Format done
      • Send
      • Delete
      • Addressbook correlation
      • Voice playback through festival
    4. Call Divert
      • All standard divert functions
    5. Basic GUI for test purposes.


    I will be concentrating mostly on having the functionality and very little will be done on the user interface for now.

    There is another group out there that do some of that, open source, you might want to check them out and save you some time on unique coding.
    They are what I use right now.

    I don't use a phone control soft but for me, one vital part of any APP is the ability of being skinnable.

    Thanatos.
    Noted, and added to the requirements.
    Also there will be a command line version if others want to use the back end and createor their own frontends.

    Yes, there are projects out there that do some of what I want to achieve, so where possible I will be reusing other open soure code. My project will also be open.

    The idea is to do something similar. Language is not yet fully decided. I'm currently prototyping with python for the message processing and C for the serial IO and interrupt handling. Once I'm happy with the encoding and decoding algorithms for the SMS formats, IO and interrupt handling I will rewrite it all in C++.

    In it's initial form (for my test purposes) it will work from the command line only. When the I'm happy with this I will proceed to a GUI.
