Using the contact system in

Have you ever used Google Contacts, or an online service that uses the LDAP protocol? Those services use what is called a directory. You can find anyone that has an account for an online service using a directory.

This Python program simulates a directory using the Database, which is supported with Python, and the simple CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) functions.

This program is similar to the phonebook program used in this tutorial, although this program was not forked from the phonebook program.

Note: When updating a contact, and changing the name, but keeping the email, you need to enter in the new name, but re-enter the current email.

Have fun!


Please be appropriate.
For your contact:

  • Name: replit username (you don't need to add the "@" before your username)
  • Email: email associated with your replit username
