After struggling a bit with a CSRF issue, migrating to paperless-ngx has really been as easy as changing the referenced image in the docker-compose.yml, so now I’m running that an am really happy with the results and confident of running a supported and actively developed paperless.

As for someone who has not had a lot of experience with OCR (despite my job), the quality has been superb for me.

I’m going through my folders of paychecks, rent contracts and things of that nature and scanning everything that seems important/worthy of archiving.

I would like to move on to purchase receipts and the scanner includes a template for scanning these kinds of small, non standard documents, but it has not been so far. So that’s for another day.
