Papis is a powerful and highly extensible command-line based document and bibliography manager.
Its command-line interface (CLI) is heavily tailored after Git.
The software is written in the Python programming language and released under an open source license.
- Synchronizing of documents: put your documents in some folder and synchronize it using the tools you love: git, dropbox, rsync, OwnCloud, Google Drive …
- Share libraries with colleagues without forcing them to open an account, nowhere, never.
- Download directly paper information from DOI number via Crossref.
- (optional) scihub support. The script is not included directly as a papis command, and it has its own PyPi repository.
- Import from Zotero and other managers.
- Create custom scripts to help you achieve great tasks easily.
- Export documents into many formats (bibtex, yaml).
- Command-line granularity, all the power of a library at the tip of your fingers.
- Implements a very rudimentary caching system. A cache is created for every library. Inside the cache only the paths to the different valid papis documents are stored.
- Bash autocompletion script
- Experimental graphical user interfaces are available.
