I wonder if there are existing project to provide a Nextcloud/Owncloud-connector for SO like there are already existing connectors for Dropbox and Onedrive ?

I am asking because Carddav/Calday connector is a pain im pants atm. . which may be because i am too stupid get it to run.

what is your problem? For me caldav/carddav is running. And there is a app "Nextcloud/ownCloud client" in store. Have you give the search a try??

The app in the store doesn't support Carddav/Caldav, unfortunately.

You can create a Carddav/Caldav account in SailfishOS, but I find it very unreliable for syncing against my nextcloud instance.

I suspect part of the (overall) problem is that the calendering feature in nextcloud is an extension. My experience with any of it is not good, and I find myself having to dig down into sqlite commands to clean up my calendars.

I would support and use a targeted app or account/connector.

I work daily with the nextcloud calendar using the caldav account in settings. No problems after last update (2.1.4 / Lapuanjoki). Maybe your trouble is connected with a earlier release. In the release notes of Lapuanjoki(http://) you will find:
Accounts - CalDav syncing getting stuck fixed CalDav reminders no longer trigger twice after sync

The "Nextcloud/ownCloud client" app is only for files. The app "CargoDock" has also settings for owncloud and webdav.
Of course you need the calendar / contacts app in nextcloud. Visit the nextcloud community for questions with nextcloud.
For older problems with caldav see here
If I can help per mail please use the mail adress inside this question.

@shanti; thx for the link. With the upgrade to Nextcloud 13 all our nextcloud user hat to reregister there devices and services. We create new single use passwords (app passwords). Have you try a reregister with a new created app password?
