Osada profile to CSV

This script can be used to extract the contact list from an Osada profile JSON file and save it into CSV. The CSV file can be imported with accounts on Friendica and other platforms that use CSV files.

Why?

A Osada user asked for an import possibility for their contacts into their new Friendica account and this script was the fastest way to do so.

Requirements

Python3 with the JSON module installed (which part of the default installation, so you should be file).

Usage

Export your Osada profile as JSON file and save it on your computer. Save the python script alongside of the profile and open a terminal in that directory. Run python3 and pass the profile filename as second parameter.

python3 ./osada-contacts-to-csv.py profile.json

The contacts will be extracted and saved to a file called profile.csv.
