WebDAV server on OpenBSD
3 projects | /r/openbsd | 26 May 2023
Hi, all! I'm trying to set up a personal server on OpenBSD. One of the things I need the server to be able to do is keep my Zotero files backed up, and Zotero uses WebDAV to do that. So far as I've been able to figure out, OpenBSD does not make it possible to run a WebDAV server. Is that right? I've found cadaver as a WebDAV client, and I've crawled the httpd man pages for any indication of the functionality, but so far, I'm coming up empty.
Todoist for capture? Thinking about using Todoist to capture web bookmarks (articles, websites, books, podcasts, etc.). Are any of you doing the same? If not what tool are you using?

I use Zotero and Obsidian for this. I have been burned too many times with online services and my notes. I own the data this way.
[Discussion] What is that piece of software (or many pieces of software) that others might not know, but are extremely useful in Physics and sciences (and University/College) overall, and that you'd recommend for others?

Zotero - Zotero, I believe, should have a decent audience, but I still write a recommendation here. Zotero allows you to quickly add sources, studies etc. to cite. As it says on their webpage: “Zotero is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, annotate, cite, and share research.” I do believe that it is extremely accurate, as I've had no problems so far. It is incredibly easy to use [but as with anything that is auto-generated, you should still check whether it picks the correct source to cite]. Still, it is great for what it does.

Advice to write a PhD thesis using LaTeX?

Hopefully, you already organized literature references as .bib file in the bibtex format. There are multiple managers available (survey wikipedia), and research libraries offer workshops on an afternoon to set you up an going. One of them is zotero - open source, cross-platform, well documented (there is a r/zotero, too). With zoterobib on one hand, the doi of journal articles/ISBN of modern books on the other, you equally can generate snippets of .bib files without an installation - but it is less comfortable than batch processing a couple of pdf at once zotero allows. (If your are lucky, publishers offer the export of the bibliographic data in a .bib file right next to the .pdf of the publication.)
