This is Part IV of a series on P.A.R.A., a universal system for organizing digital information across multiple platforms. Check out part I, II, and III for context.

The previous posts describe a somewhat idealized, “perfect” version of P.A.R.A that’s already fully functional. But it does require some work to make the transition. This post is my attempt to provide some structure to the setup process. I’m hoping this will allow at least part of it to be self-directed, so I can focus on edge cases and exceptions.
