       directoryassistant - user friendly ldap addressbook frontend


       Directory  Assistant is a small application for managing a LDAP address
       book. The focus is to create a very easy to use program, with only  the
       few  but  necessary  features.  The target is novice users that need to
       keep their addresses in an LDAP server.


       Configuration is done by config file. Since novice users  anyway  don’t
       know  how  to  configure LDAP access, I decided to remove that from the
       GUI.  The  config  file  should  be   at   /etc/directoryassistant   or
       ~/.directoryassistant and should have the format:

       [My Ldap Server]
       ldapurl = ldap://
       base_dn = ou=department,ou=People,o=someorg

       extended options are:

       bind_dn = cn=someaccount,o=someorg
       bind_password = yourpassword
       add_dn = ou=myunit,ou=department,ou=People,o=someorg
       ldapversion = 3
       startup_search =
