kudo to JM LE CORGUILLE, for the idea and the code.


The latest version of smeserver-radicale is available in the SME repository, click on the version number(s) for more information.


This contribution for smeserver adds a caldav and a carddav server, the collection is located at /home/e-smith/files/radicale.

Radicale is a caldav/carddav server written in python, smeserver-radicale use pip to install and upgrade it. http://radicale.org/


You need to enable the epel and the stephdl repositories


  • ONLY for sme9

This contrib is currently held in the epel and the stephdl repository, so the following commands will install the contribs on your smeserver.

yum --enablerepo=epel,stephdl install smeserver-radicale

You will then need to activate the database changes etc. The 'official' way is to perform

signal-event radicale-update

or a much more long event

signal-event console-save

Each time you launch this event and 'console-save' you will upgrade radicale and renew the ssl certificate if it is removed of /home/e-smith/files/radicale


For each user saved in the server-manager you will find a collections that it will own in /home/e-smith/files/radicale/collections. The folder is created at the first login and store all the carddav and caldav entries in two files (calendar.ics & addressbook.vcf).

see them by

ls -la -R /home/e-smith/files/radicale/collections/


# config show radicale
   debug=False   #or True for debugging purpose (logs are in /var/log/radicale/radicale.log)

after a change, do

signal-event radicale-update
