Original question on SO.
I looked up a lot of threads on a good document management system on SO. So, given all that knowledge, here is my question: What is a very intuitive, open source (preferably with no commercial upgrade) document management system with a good a web interface. Some features that I am looking for :
- Extremely easy to upload documents. Ideally I should have access to a shared folder and should just copy paste the file and it should version it and check changes. Something like what dropbox does.
- Easy to use, search web interface. It would also be nice if I could modify search results to make it display richer information about the documents itself.
I have looked at some platforms like alfresco, Open KM, Jive etc but want a more workable solution. I know Apache solr can be configured to (re)crawl directories and the index can be configured to show richer info. I also just came across Apache JackRabbit that looks very similar. Please tell me if anybody has any experiences with such an implementation. Thanks in advance.
