The features to allow automated database import from a DOI are becoming very nice in JabRef.
I wonder how far away we might be from a browser tool/extension that helps to automate this even further?
For example, if I am on a page containing a DOI link, could I have a bookmarklet etc which tells JabRef to import a bibtex record corresponding to that DOI? Perhaps I have to highlight the DOI…?
Is there a way to communicate via a socket connection to JabRef and request addition of a record specified by DOI?
Looks like there would be ways for a Firefox extension to talk to JabRef, potentially… http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17351922/opening-socket-connection-in-firefox-add-on
