Project Description
CiteULike Client

a python client for Citeulike.

If you notice any problems with paths or dependencies, please file a patch. Or
just fork it. I'll make you maintainer in all likelihood, as I'm no longer

if options is None: options=globals()['options']
from citeulike.citeulike_api import CiteULike

outjsonpath = path(options.docroot)/options.bibtex_json_file
if os.path.isabs(options.attachment_path):
outpdfpath = path(options.attachment_path)
outpdfpath = path(options.docroot)/options.attachment_path

cul = CiteULike(username=options.cul_username,
bibtex_string = cul.render('bibtex')
with, 'w', 'utf-8') as bf:
