It seems that an initial Zotero flatpak is now available from flathub, here. I gave it a try, it seems to work decently, but I just installed, rebooted (because otherwise I would not see the entry in the Gnome menu) and run it... I did nothing with it, but I expect it to work... is it still worth to package it??

@ivanhoe1024 could you share your current scripts? Thanks.
I'm happy to share them! Please note, though, that these are the results of many subsequent attempts, made by a non-programmer, so it is very likely that you are going yo have more junk than useful scripts! Please note Number 2, I used the "file" source because I was unable to download them from the net, because the two needed files have the exact same name!
I have to defend my PhD thesis in a month, I have been very busy lately, so probably with some more efforts there could be the possibility to solve this...

Ok, enough of Zotero for me, I give up! The build process described online works only for the git version. The release version needs internet connection to build, and keeps calling script after script after script:
- if you'd like to just build, you have to exploit the build scripts that only work for the git version (I tried to solve each problems by modifying them step by step, but it seems there will not be an end, ever!);
- if you'd like to build the "release" version, instead, you are somewhat forced to "build and deploy" it directly, and the deploy part requires the use of other tools like Mozilla ARchive, AWS CLI and a AWS S3 access... probably there could be the possibility to avoid this by patching each script, commenting out the lines devoted to these tasks, but I already tried, there is never an end!! My advice would be to use the pre-build version (through third-party repo) or probably build the git version… Third option: someone who knows what he’s doing could try make things work! If anyone needs what I tried to do so far, the files are at disposal…
I am sorry for that, I’m afraid it is beyond my possibilities!

I everybody, I managed to build Zotero from source... Now, though, I have two problems (which probably are my falts, because I cannot use solbuild as I should...). I asked also in the forum here. Problems here being that zotero devs named the source files with the same exact name (hence solbuild has difficulties in downloading them) and that the build process requires internet access (which seems to be not allowed inside solbuild fakeroot environment) to download both needed files and nodejs modules... Any idea? Is there something about this in the Solus Help Center that I missed?

Ok, I have a working build of the Zotero package, the last version. I'm going to upload it, hoping not to have problems in the process...

I am not a programmer, but probably I could be able to provide a working package for this, that should be reviewed for conformity. It is better if I proceed and someone then corrects my package.yml or if I avoid at all to do so?
