Incorporate docear4word into jabref 4?


(zerkang) #1

Hi, I started using Jabref from version 2. But it is ugly to insert jabref entries into ms word untill docear4word appeared. Docear4word can insert entryies in a bibtex file into ms word in a convenient manner. However, it will attractive connect jabref with word directly.

May I ask that could the comming jabref 4 push entries into ms word directly? If that, I think jabref will be the most powful tool, instead of endnote or zotero.

We are very well aware of the plugin and extracted the code to https://github.com/JabRef/JabRef4Word. However, we currently have no resources for developing the plugin further. We also cannot pay anyone to do it. Docear is in a similar situation: http://www.docear.org/2014/10/23/how-to-proceed-with-the-development-of-the-docear4libreoffice-add-on/

Maybe you know a developer who wants to volunteer here? We would be very happy to support.

Sorry for that. I’m not a programmer yet.

Furthermore, when an entry in Jabref was deleted, its related files had better be moved into a trash subdirectory automatically. Will it come into effect in the next version?

Please file a feature request at https://github.com/JabRef/jabref/issues. It is a kind of thing a beginner can do and which we can thus get linked from http://up-for-grabs.net/#/tags/java.

Regarding linked files, the current 4.0 dev version has the option to delete the file on disk or to just remove the file link from the entry.
