Invenio module to interact with Grobid API for metadata extraction.

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.
