Thanks a lot for this snippet!
Just for future reference, this snipped helps in addressing this feature request: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=720519

What does this do?

This script makes it easy to use fastmail calendars in gnome-accounts.
It emulates a simple Owncloud instance that redirects caldav urls to fastmail.

Running the script locally

poetry install
poetry run uvicorn --reload server:app

Now use localhost:8000 as the server address in the Owncloud plugin in gnome-accounts. The username and password are your fastmail username and an app-password with CalDav access.

This is brilliant and so simple. Worked perfectly for me - thank you!

I used it for zimbra - which has the following URL:

        "caldav": "https://$SERVER/dav/$USER/Calendar",

Hey! This works great; I'm curious about adding webdav (files) support as well. I'm guessing it's in the dav() function mapping .. would something like this work:

"webdav": "https://myfiles.fastmail.com"

? Thanks again for the great little tool!

@duckwork I don't think that works since you cannot generate app passwords in fastmail (I just tried) which provide access to CardDav/CalDav & Files :( But if you are just using your normal password you might try adding the mapping and remove the Route in line 29.

FWIW I have asked the fastmail CEO if this could be added https://twitter.com/fapolloner/status/1254138648238448640

And even then it won't work because gvfs cannot follow redirects: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gvfs/-/issues/177 :(

hmm.. thanks for the reply! I realized that for now, I can just add fastmail's files in Nautilus with davfs://
so that works well enough.
Thanks for the reply! AND for the message to Fastmail -- it should be an option, I think.

Yes, file integration from goa doesn't much more than that by itself anyways I think.

Thanks a lot !!!!!

This is so much better than using bloaty evolution for adding/removing contacts and calendar but using preinstalled gnome applications for viewing it.

(BTW, I rewrote it in Go because its leaner and installing it is easier (single systemd service and no venv) but whatever )

There is an upstream MR to get official support for CalDAV in gnome-online-accounts.
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-online-accounts/-/merge_requests/54

Hopefully it gets reviewed and merged so workarounds aren't necessary.

I added a merge request for fastmail support a year ago with no response yet. If you look at the master https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-online-accounts/-/commits/master aside from translations there isn't happening anything since a while; I do not have any hopes and sadly have to assume that goa is abandonware.
