Bibliography management 

I've tried a few ways to organize my papers, and while is amazing for handling a single bibliography, I wanted something to keep my full collection of papers and books under control.
So I moved to , and I'm pretty happy with it. Especially with the "Better bib(la)Tex" plugin, the "keep updated" option for exporting to .bib files is wonderful.
Now I have to find a way to keep the library on my NAS but use the client from my laptop - 1/2

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:

@mprv It's great to hear that this is possible.

@jaranta
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 @jaranta wow! this sounds awesome! If you could write some tutorial, it would be great!

@jorge @mprv @jaranta I'd also appreciate a tutorial post—and I think know others who would as well!

@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!
