``examples/scripts/papis-scihub`` to download papers from scihub and
add them to your library with all the relevant information, in a
matter of seconds, also you can check the documentation

Super quick start

Install papis with pip3


sudo pip3 install papis

Let us download a couple of documents



Now add them to the (defaultly created) library, you can set
any keyword you like already when adding documents, for instance
you can set the year `--set year 2018` or tags for organizing
`--set tags programming`,


papis add libc.pdf --set author "Sandra Loosemore" --set title "GNU C reference manual" --set year 2018 --set tags programming --confirm
# Get paper information automatically via de DOI
papis add --from-doi 10.1090/noti963 --set tags programming rnoti-p434.pdf

Now open one for example, or edit them


papis open
papis edit

|superquickstartsvg1| Or edit them and export them to bibtex


papis export --all --bibtex > mylib.bib


find help messages in all commands:


papis -h
papis add -h

|asciicast_help| AND MUCH, MUCH MORE!
