A command line tool to manage scientific papers.

Project description


Papr is a command line tool to manage and quickyl access scientific papers.



You can install papr via pip as follows:

pip install papr

Getting started.

Papers are organized in repositories. To create a repository change into a directory where the repository should be created and type papr init. Example:

cd astro_repo
papr init

This will create a directory .paper in the astro_repo directory to store metadata. All PDFs will be stored in astro_repo.

Default repositories

The last repository which you create with papr init is set as the default repository. If you call papr without being in a repository the default repository will be used for all operations. Otherwise, the current working directory will be used as the repository.

Fetch a paper from

Fetch a document from arXiv is quite easy. You just have to provide the URL of the abstract and papr will download the PDF and will automatically extract the title. Example:

papr fetch
