Draft pull request for Nextcloud support in Online Accounts. Next steps to consider:

  • WIP: User needs the possibility to enter the Nextcloud server url before we try to login with OAuth
  • The Integration.vala needs to be modified to whatever the Nextcloud OAuth flow expects
  • The Nextcloud services Tasks, Calendars and Contacts need to be properly configured (what are the allowed BackendNames?)

@tintou can you please advise if the following works?

The goal is to allow a user to enter a Nextcloud server URL and use this user defined URL in the subsequent OAuth authentication flow:

  1. Add <setting name="AskNextcloudURL" type="boolean">true</setting> node as first chlid node within <group name="oauth2"> of the file
  2. Define OnlineAccounts.Key.ASK_NEXTCLOUD_URL in src/Authentification/Key.vala
  3. Create src/Authentification/NextcloudURLDialog.vala based on MailDialog.vala
  4. Add else if (info.parameters.contains (OnlineAccounts.Key.ASK_NEXTCLOUD_URL)) in src/Authentification/RequestQueue.vala
…l something seems missing.

tested my assumptions in code - does not work as expected, the NextcloudDialog is not shown. @tintou what I'm missing here?
