Paperwork - openpaper.work
Paperwork is a personal document manager. It manages scanned documents and PDFs.
It's designed to be easy and fast to use. The idea behind Paperwork
is "scan & forget": You can just scan a new document and
forget about it until the day you need it again.
In other words, let the machine do most of the work for you.

If you installed it manually (for development), you can follow the same process than for
- Extra documentation / FAQ / Tips / Wiki
- Mailing-list (be careful: By default, Google groups set your subscription to "no email")
- Bug trackers
Papers are organized into documents. Each document contains pages.
It mainly uses:
- Sane/Pyinsane: To scan the pages
- Tesseract/Pyocr: To extract the words from the pages (OCR)
- GTK: For the user interface
- Whoosh: To index and search documents, and provide keyword suggestions
- Simplebayes: To guess the labels
- Pillow/Libpillowfight: Image manipulation
Paperwork has automated tests. These tests are designed in a unusual manner:
They use screenshots (aka "May work or may not work. Do you feel lucky today ?").
Because these screenshots change often and are heavy (compared to source files),
they are stored in a separate Git repository:
GPLv3 or later. See COPYING.
