It is not well documented, but Evolution provides a command line tool to export its contacts to CSV or vCard formats.
You have to supply the full path to the command, and you have to replace “X.X” with the version number found on your system.
Some useful options are:
- Export to CSV: –format=csv > contacts.csv
- Export to vCard: –format=vcard > contacts.vcf
- See all available options: –help
