Update: I'm now synchronizing my papers using NextCloud.
I created a zotero account, so the metadata is synced with their server, but the actual files are on my home NAS.
I can now delete the papers from my laptop, and download them on the fly when needed simply double clicking on their zotero entry.
I have written a short post with the details of my setup:
let me know if it need clarification or improvement! 😄
@mprv It's great to hear that this is possible.
It was surprisingly easy, and I really like that I never have to upload the works to a third party server.
If you want more details I could write a blog post about the process.
@mprv I think I have a pretty good idea on how it works, but it wouldn't hurt to spread the word.
@mprv hey friendly heads up, looks like a couple of your links are messed up, "people at " and "Zotero Sync [link]" 😀
I'm been using zotero since ever but only as a bibliography manager, thanks for the library management tips!
@drocan Fixed now, thank you very much!
