Unofficial snap for Zotero Standalone

Zotero is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share your research sources.


  1. This snap tracks the upstream release tarbal, update within app is not supported.
  2. Due to strict confinement, some plugins may not work as expected, I can review the needed changed upon user request but can't guarantee it will be resolved.


  1. The following is recommend before revision 11, newer version move default folders to ~/snap/zotero-snap/common to stay consistent. It is advised to change your project folder from the default ~/snap/zotero-snap/current/Zotero to a more persistent destination, such as ~/snap/zotero-snap/common/Zotero or any places you have granted this snap to use, removable drive or $HOME/some_directory. Else when the snap get upgraded it won't be able to find the sqlite database from the previous version folder.
  2. Some plugins might not work, due to snap sandboxing. If you found any issue, feel free to report in the snap repo.
