What do you mean? There is lightning calendar and contacts addon which you can use to synchronise your calendar/contacts online. I know it works with Nextcloud, but haven't used it for months.
@kev to be fair, thunderbird hasn't been really maintained for some time now, so probably no one's bothered to get to it.
@MrControl @kev I think your impression of #Thunderbird is out of date. They've re-invested in it, hired a full-time team, and pushed out multiple releases in the last year. It's having a comeback moment right now.
Here's their roadmap for 2019: https://blog.mozilla.org/thunderbird/2019/01/thunderbird-in-2019/
@apetresc TIL! Had no idea they were back on it. Downloading now.
Granted, Lightning supports CalDAV, I'll give you guys that - oversight on my part there, sorry. But from what I can see, CardDAV is not supported out of the box. What am I missing?
Please note: I'm not really bothered, as I use Evolution which has both bundled in by default without the need for plugins. :-D
@kev @zalandocalrissian @MrControl @opentrash
My intention wasn't to be aggressive, I just wanted to be helpful. There is addon which enables you synchronisation with online accounts.

@johnathan012 you didn’t come across as aggressive, and my flippant remark wasn’t aimed at you. 👍
I’m aware plugins exist that add the functionality, but I would have thought it would be available without them on an app like Thunderbird.
To me it’s like having Firefox without bookmark support.
@kev Yes, I understand you, and I agree that it should be integrated in Thunderbird. But its not much of a bother to install it, just few clicks away and CardBook is open source. I stopped using Thunderbird because I switched to different e-mail provider which doesn't support IMAP so I might be lagging behind, but I know Lightning and CardBook worked for me with Nextcloud, they should also work with other providers.
@kev I too think about it. Have to use so many plugins just to have decent contacts syncing
