Project Description

Invenio module to interact with Grobid API for metadata extraction from PDF.

This is an experimental developer preview release.


This module provide an interface for uploading PDFs to a Grobid instance and allows to submit extracted metadata to a configurable callback.

NOTE: This packages assumes you have setup a local Grobid REST service. For more information about this and more, read the official Grobid documentation.


pip install invenio-grobid

Note that you also need a running Grobid REST service.


Add invenio_grobid package to your Invenio PACKAGES config in your overlay/ to be picked up by the Invenio application loader.

Configure the URL to your Grobid REST service with GROBID_HOST.

inveniomanage config set GROBID_HOST 'http://localhost:8080'

If you want to change your standard upload handler after extraction, update GROBID_RESULT_HANDLER.

inveniomanage config set GROBID_RESULT_HANDLER 'my_overlay.grobid:upload_handler'


The uploader interface is available under the /grobid endpoint by default. E.g. http://localhost:4000/grobid

  • Choose a PDF to extract metadata from and hit Upload.
  • Wait a bit and metadata will be displayed.
  • Click on Submit button to push the metadata to your GROBID_RESULT_HANDLER

Special thanks to Joseph Boyd (@jcboyd) and Gilles Louppe (@glouppe) for Grobid support.

Happy hacking and thanks for flying Invenio Grobid.
