## Project description

Mendeley Stats
==============

A command line tool to extract information about papers in a Mendeley folder.

## Installation

### OS X and Linux:


pip install mendeleystats


Also, you need to set API keys to a configuration file. First, enter http://dev.mendeley.com/ and register an app.
to access the values of Consumer Key and Consumer Secret. With this information in hands, create a
file .mendeleystatsconfig in your home directory. The content of this file must follow the format:


{
"api_key" : "the value of the consumer key",
"api_secret" : "the value of the consumer secret"
}


### Windows

I do not know. I accept help to write this :)

## How to use

It is super simple to use:


mendeleystats [-h] --info {year,type,authors,keywords,publishedin}
--output {chart,csv} --folder FOLDER


For example:


mendeleystats --info year --output chart --folder datamining


It displays a chart with information about papers per year from the "datamining" folder.
You can get other types of information, you only need to change the value of the argument --info,
the options are: year, type, authors, keywords, and publishedin.

Besides, you can choose to save a .csv file with the information instead get a chart.
For this, you need to use the value csv in the argument --output.
