Tool to update LDAP entries with a text editor

ldapvi is tool to update LDAP entries with a text editor. It is

  • Written in C;
  • Reasonably fast and small. The ldapvi client needs about as much time for receiving entries as the OpenLDAP server needs to send them, which should be fast enough;
  • Shows a summary of changes before committing them. Details of the changes can be previewed in LDIF format;
  • Uses an LDIF-like format in the editor which should be easier to use interactively than standard LDIF;
  • Can rename entries;
  • Does not give up easily. On error, you can edit the file again, or rebind to the server and try again.
