How I get grouped/linked several documents?

Postby bester69 » 2019-04-15 01:41

Hi,

I have several concept documents, I'd like to keep linked among them, so I can keep joined the whole brain concepts throught several documents apart.

Example.
I create several office documents named different, but all of them need to be linked in someway (I dont know how) so I can keep trace of the whole concept accesing any of the documents of the group by separate.. I also would like to be able to unlink a document from the group by removing the "hyperlink" from any of the documents.
0- I create several documents that need to be grouped (linked within them)
- Blue cars.odt
- BigCars.odt
- Forsale.odt

1- I linked in some way I dont know how to do.:
I 'd like to create cross hyperlinks, so If I create a hyperlink pointing to one file, in the other file It appears its counterpart file, And when I remove the cross hyperlink, It dissapears in both files or more.
------------------------------------------------

I really dont know how to do to recreate a system that work with documents in this way, its something similar to work with documents and tags (like picassa but with documents).. do we have any document manager that works with tags (concepts)?
Im creating a lot of concept documents , that need to be indexed in some way so I cant miss documents that are similar by related concepts, I also would like to be able to open any of them from each other of the linked group.

Any suggestion, thanks :shock:

ok, I think I was looking for an easy to deploy and simple to use DMS(Document Management System Software).

I hadn't used a DMS before, I will take a look at some of them to see which one fix better my needs. I needs something easy to deploy and simple to use,

Most people probably just use file system an put similar documents into folders, although this has limitations (file cannot be in many folders, for example). Or you can use git repos, so that each collection is it's own repo.

Not entirely sure what you want, but I know that gnome-documents. for example, can create collections of documents, so you can link or unlink documents to a group. It also allows you to book mark documents and write comments into them with evince.

Then there is Paperworks, which allows you to label documents and keep them file them efficiently (make groups and whatever). It even learns, so that it can do it automatically after you have done it a few times. But it is more for "real papers", that is meant to be used with a scanner to ocr and manage paper that you get in the mail and so on into digital searchable format.

Hi pylkko, Im gonna check those two later

I think i will use digikam and tags (im happy how this worked) to keep track of all documents and groups..Ive created a script that open libreoffice within digikam and update image exported document if updated libreoffice odt file. All documents and converted image documents are in the same folder, I just need to get an easy way to linked/unlinked them and know what relation is among them.

here, you can see.:

the script to convert libreoffice to jpg and update them when file changes.
digika.sh
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
#
if [ -z "$1" ]
 then
 echo "nada"
 exit
 else
ruta=$(readlink -f "$1")
ruta2=$(dirname "$ruta")
fileorg=$(basename "$1")
filename=$(basename "$1" .jpg)
 fi
FILE="$ruta2/$filename.odt"

flag=/tmp/flg_$filename.txt && rm $flag
killall inotifywait &
sleep 2
killall inotifywait -9
 while inotifywait  -e modify $FILE ; do
echo "1" > $flag
done &

if [ -f "$FILE" ]; then
    killall soffice.bin
    soffice $FILE
    else
    gwenview $ruta2/$fileorg 
fi

if [ -f "$flag" ]; then
soffice --headless --convert-to jpg --outdir $ruta2 $FILE | xargs jpegoptim -S70 
echo "$FILE updated"
fi
rm $flag

You should consider this application: https://www.giuspen.com/cherrytree/

I use it and like it very much.
