Install the library by:

$ pip install wostools

Say you want to grab the title of all the articles in an isi file, you can grab this example file.

>>> from wostools import CollectionLazy
>>> collection = CollectionLazy('docs/examples/bit-pattern-savedrecs.txt')
>>> for article in collection.articles:
...     print(article.TI)
Structural control of ultra-fine CoPt nanodot arrays via electrodeposition process
Porphyrin-based Pt/Pd-containing metallopolymers: Synthesis, characterization, optical property and potential application in bioimaging
Syntheses and Controllable Self-Assembly of Luminescence Platinum(II) Plane-Coil Diblock Copolymers
# ...

Never fear wostools cli is here. To help you do some common tasks right from your terminal.

$ wostools --help
$ # To build a citation graph full with properties
$ wostools citation-graph docs/examples/bit-pattern-savedrecs.txt output.graphml
