Nextcloud

DAVx⁵ has been successfully tested with Nextcloud.

Nextcloud is a PHP-based server software to access, share and protect your files, calendars, contacts, communication & more at home and in your enterprise.

Nextcloud app

DAVx⁵ is integrated with the Nextcloud app for Android. You can use it to set up DAVx⁵ without having to enter a base URL:

  1. Install the Nextcloud app for Android.
  2. Open the Settings of the Nextcloud app.
  3. Choose "Sync calendar & contacts".
  4. DAVx⁵ will open with
    • pre-filled URL/user name, or
    • Nextcloud Login Flow (requires Nextcloud app 3.9.0+ and DAVx⁵ 2.6+).
  5. Continue DAVx⁵ setup as usual (see below).

DAVx⁵ settings

Base URL:/remote.php/dav (for instance: https://example.com/nextcloud/remote.php/dav)

Contact group method: groups are per-contact categories (other methods are supported on server side, but the Contacts Nextcloud app only uses CATEGORIES at the moment)

User name and password: Nextcloud account password or device-specific password. If you're using two-factor authentication, you have to generate and use a device-specific password for DAVx⁵.
