  • Paperless-ng

    A supercharged version of paperless: scan, index and archive all your physical documents

    I've been using paperless-ng which is a fork that re-did a LOT from paperless (app included). You should check it out: If that is too simple for ya, you can always try Mayan EDMS.

  • Paperless

    Scan, index, and archive all of your paper documents

  • Sonar

    Write Clean Python Code. Always.. Sonar helps you commit clean code every time. With over 225 unique rules to find Python bugs, code smells & vulnerabilities, Sonar finds the issues while you focus on the work.

  • Mayan EDMS

    Free Open Source Document Management System (mirror, no pull request or issues)

    Mayan EDMS might be worth a look. It's actively maintained and developed.

  • Teedy

    Lightweight document management system packed with all the features you can expect from big expensive solutions (by sismics)

  • go-teedy

    A Go client library and CLI for accessing the API of Teedy.

    I ended up making this tool to do exports and imports for backups / restores:

  • Docspell

    Assist in organizing your piles of documents, resulting from scanners, e-mails and other sources with miminal effort.

    There's also docspell, although I found the deployment a bit cumbersome - I would prefer a single docker image.

  • Papermerge

    Open Source Document Management System for Digital Archives (Scanned Documents)

    I use Papermerge and have been pretty happy with its capabilities.

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.
