Modified zotero dataserver for local installations

This repository contains a modified version of the zotero dataserver to make local installations easier and support group file synchronization using a local S3 compatible storage service.

Differences to the official dataserver:

  • Replaced the Amazon AWS SDK with an alternative Amazon S3 client
  • No fulltext content sync support (This would require an installation of Elasticsearch)
  • Removed support for Notifications (uses Amazon SNS)


Instructions are availabe for:


Upgrade instructions from an older version of this modified dataserver (branch "master") to the current version (branch "2015.02")


To use zotero with a local dataserver the client must be patched.


To add users and groups some scripts are available in the admin directory of the dataserver source code.
