Khard is an address book for the Linux console. It creates, reads, modifies and removes carddav address book entries at your local machine. Khard is also compatible to the email clients mutt and alot and the SIP client twinkle. You can find more information about khard and the whole synchronization process here.
Warning: If you want to create or modify contacts with khard, beware that the vcard standard is very inconsistent and lacks interoperability. Different actors in that sector have defined their own extensions and even produce non-standard output. A good example is the type value, which is tied to phone numbers, email and post addresses. Khard tries to avoid such incompatibilities but if you sync your contacts with an Android or iOS device, expect problems. You are on the safe side, if you only use khard to read contacts. For further information about the vcard compatibility issues have a look into this blog post.
