I would like to share a thought with you. I have just changed my professional computer, which was an opportunity to drastically harden the installed and legitimate software for computer security. Gone are the file synchronization softwares like dropbox (not good) or the nextcloud client (good) allowing me to work at home and at work until then.
Fortunately, I managed to get the right to install Joplin on the work computer. My main (and favorite) workflow is save. The IT department who thought they would forbid me to use nextcloud because they refused to install the synchronization client... sees it coming back through the window via Joplin
The crazy question I have is the following. What if I integrate my workflow folder (about 40 GB) directly into Joplin thanks to the excellent Hotfolder (thanks to @JackGruber )? Has anyone ever tried to use Joplin as a file explorer? It could be very handy because all my documents could be in a Joplin notebook and sorted/filtered with tags...
Why not giving it a try? Is there something that you think might cause problems? I've been moving more and more of my files under Joplin too as it's easier to search and then I also have them on mobile. I didn't move 40 GB though.
Brand-new baby Joplin user here. If this works, this would solve so many things for me! And Joplin has already done that. Good, synched notes and to-dos between mobile and Linux... I've been looking for something this good for I don't know how long. And to be able to organise documents by tags rather than hierarchical file folders.... sweet Merlin and all his little imps. Combining that with notes at the same time makes this a research tool I have been dreaming of.
