This command allows the user to interact with the papis cache or papis database.
To clear the cache (remove it from the filesystem), you can run the following command
papis cache clear
This command is also useful for plugin developers.
Let us suppose that you are editing the YAML file of a document at path
If you are editing this file without the machinery of papis
you might want to make papis be aware of this change by using the
subcommand. You might do
papis cache update --doc-folder /path/to
or maybe by query
papis cache update query-matching-document
Furthermore, a noteworthy subcommand is
updates the cache for those documents whose info file is newer than
the cache itself. This subcommand has the same interface as most
papis commands, so that if you want to check all documents you have to
papis cache update-newer --all
This command is much faster than rebuilding the cache from scratch. You can therefore run this command once in a while in order to update the cache for those documents that have been synchronized by the means of synchronization that you are using, for instance using git, Syncthing, Dropbox, etc.
