Due to pandemic and other things that seem to happen I’m looking for some advice for best practices how to set up DT. So far I’ve mostly used DT with a number of databases on two Macs that I’ve synced using iCloud (previously Dropbox), I’ve also synced it to iOS but I haven’t really used that part.
I’ve also just dropped snippets, text files and PDFs storing them inside DT. But things might change in the future and I’m looking for some advice how to handle those situations.
Hardware: I will still have two macOS devices but I might need to use different iCloud accounts (work and private), I will also have my iOS devices (connected to my private account)
Services: No Dropbox. Might be able to set up one of my Synologies as WebDav server.
Content: as before text files, PDFs, etc. But I also have a bibtex database (I’m using BibDesk to manage it) and a folder with a few hundred PDFs that would be nice to be able to search/analyze in DT - all of this is a git repo. Also I have several git repos with course material that I’ve written (markdown files, images, some Keynote files, PDFs, OmniGraffle files, iThought files, OmniOutliner files, PNGs, JPEGs) that I would also like to access/search from within DT.
Since I’ve only used the basic side of DT I would appreciate some advice from more experienced people (or pointers to where I can find info about this) on how to handle this situation.
My guess is that indexing folders would handle the repos and PDFs but I don’t really know the best way to store these files so that I can keep them in sync. Dropbox is out of the question, Synology Drive might be an alternative here.
My primary goal is to be able to use this on both Macs, it would be nice if some stuff where accessible on iOS also but macOS is the priority.
I’m open for all kind of suggestions (I realize that using an external disk is an alternative but knowing myself I think it would be better with another solution )
