Welcome to Papermerge’s documentation!

I have nothing against paper. Paper is a brilliant invention of humanity. But in the 21st century I find it more appropriate for paper-based documents to be digitized (scanned). Once scanned, appropriate software can be used to find any document in a fraction of a second, just by typing a few keywords.

Papermerge is a document management system designed to work with scanned documents. As well as OCR with full text search, it provides the look and feel of major modern file browsers, with a hierarchical structure for files and folders, so that you can organize your documents in a similar way to Dropbox (via web) or Google Drive.
