Had problems importing Contacts to Nextcloud. Seems like the problem is my VCF file is v2.1 and it requires 3.0. It also seems someone solved that exact problem: https://github.com/jowave/vcard2to3

I need to automatically extract data from an outline in a Word document. Word’s APIs are obviously terrible.
Tried converting into HTML so I could just parse <ol>s, but no; Word created thousands of <p>s and styled them individually to make a list. Tried unzipping the docx, found a similar mess.
Convert to OpenDocument and suddenly it’s in a reasonable nested list form with correct use of XML.
Once again, open formats prove themselves superior to Microsoft.
