There used to be a tool called tel that would show information about a user including his phone number, room number, etc:

$ tel tux ------------------------------------------------------------ Name : Tux Pinguin Login : tpinguin Phone : +49-911-740 53 - 12345 Department : [SUSE] SUSE LINUX GmbH Position : Employee Location : Maxtorhof, Room 3.2.15 Tasks : Be there and look nice Absence : *** no absence data from workday (yet) *** ------------------------------------------------------------

As the backend (which is written in tcl and requires a tcl/tk application to change any data) is somewhat outdated and not really developed any further, there is now a new web based tool "Geekos" that provides a map of the building(s) and contains all the users. Sadly this means that the data in the old tel backend ("present server") is not updated anymore and is even completely missing some users.

There is an LDAP based tool telnovell that provides a similar functionality to tel but is missing a very important information (the room number which is not stored in LDAP) and also has a very hard to understand code.

The goal of this project shall be to provide yet another tel tool that will query the information from Geekos. As Geekos is already aggregating information from different sources including LDAP and Externaltools all required information is present there. Also Geekos has a JSON API.

Done!

I finished a basic version of geekotel: https://gitlab.suse.de/dheidler/geekotel/

Sample output:

./gtel.py tux ------------------------------------------------------------ Name : Tux Pinguin Login : tpinguin Title : Linux Mascot Team : Unicorn Team Phone : +49 911 7405 3456 Mobile : +49 161 12345678 E-Mail : tpinguin@suse.com Location : Room 3.2.15, Nürnberg, Germany Workforce ID : 12345 Costcenter : 678901234 Accounts : GitHub : pinguu ------------------------------------------------------------
