Non commercial solution to import contacts from google/hotmail/yahoo/etc

Dear Everyone,

Ive been looking for some contacts importer and found nummerous
questions on this with no real solution.

Is there someone who could advice on a gem/plugin or way to achieve
this?

So Far I only found google contacts api and the contacts gem
( outdated ) and in nummerous online topics only some commercial
serivces like plaxo are mentioned, is there no free way of code to do
this in rails?

It’s hard to standardize this because it depends heavily on the
model you use in your rails app. It’s up to you to provide the
mapping from their export data to your user model. That said, that
doesn’t preclude a solution for a specific user schema floating out
there somewhere.

I've heard of gems such as Contacts and Blackbook, but never used them
myself.

Best,

use contacts gem
