I'm looking for a software to archive digital documents that has at least the following features:

  1. is installed locally (no server)
  2. is FOSS
  3. runs in Ubuntu
  4. allows to organize documents of the same type (e.g. taxes, receipts, certificates, ...) in folders and subfolders or categories and subcategories)

Other features I'd appreciate but are not essential are:

  1. allows to export/import the archive easily. I don't need a specific fuction for that, but moving the archive from one device to another should be as easy as copy and paste a folder.
  2. allows to creation of fields other than the standard ones
  3. allows to archive "multi-file documents" (e.g. an email and its attachments) as a single object

Finally, I'd prefer a software that does not have a paid version that offers something more than the FOSS-only one.

Ideally it should be something like calibre but less library-focused.

Do you have any suggestion?
