Does anyone know of a system for managing contacts in plain text? I would love some CLI I could use to fuzzy search contacts, making it easy to grab info to my clipboard for using email clients like mutt or aerc.

I don't know of an existing system, but you could look into constructing something using FZF and a plain text file of contacts names and email addresses formatted in a specific way.
