I'm happy that there is a replacement for gContactSync. But at the moment the synchronization takes quite long and it seems to block normal work in Thunderbird.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.4).
Thanks for Your review. The synchronization of, say, 500 contacts should take about 10 seconds the first time, then only a few seconds when re-synchronizing. Once the final version is ready, however, I may think about speeding it up a little.

Your howto is very clear, even for a French man with not such a good English :-) just one point, you do not mention each time we have to enter an email address if it has to be the Gmail one or the one we use inTb... It does not work for me (Erreur 403 : access_denied
The developer hasn’t given you access to this app. It’s currently being tested and it hasn’t been verified by Google...), does the problem could come from this ? I put my Gmail adress every where, excepted when we have to "Add users" where I had both address, Gmail and the one I use in Tb... Thanks for your help :-) Have a nive day, Olivier.
Hi and thanks for Your review.
You have to enter each and every Google account which will "use" the credentials You are creating.
For example, say You're creating Example-Google-4-TbSync and You want Your app to be used by firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com (both Google accounts): just add these to the email field.
It's basically the Google user(s) who are granted access to Your Example-Google-4-TbSync app.
The error You got is likely to be caused by this misconfiguration. So, if You want to access Your Google Contacts under firstname.lastname@example.org, just enter this as the enabled email address.
Hope it helps.

This looks like a very promising replacement for gcontactsync. Thank you for your work on this.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.2).
Thank You very much!

It requires an in depth knowledge of Google Cloud Platform and API's & Services. The instructions are poorly laid out and not matching what you find on the API & Services screen. This is probably Google's fault as they are constantly changing things and many developers find their instructions out of date rather quickly. But as it is, it is impossible for me to configure.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.2).
Thanks for Your review. I appreciated Your criticism and rewrote the steps in the howto (https://github.com/zanonmark/Google-4-TbSync/wiki/How-to-generate-your-own-Google-API-Console-project-credentials), which now is also full of screenshots and should be much more clear.
Could You please try and tell if everything seems easier?

Finally, there is a replacement for gContactSync. Thank you very much !!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.2).
Thank you very much. It's still under development and will be partially rewritten in a few weeks when TbSync will be ported to the new WebExtension API. At the moment you'd better use it in read-only mode.
