Project: PDF Integration

(Snigdha Sinha) #1


I’m looking to work on the PDF integration for GSOC and had some questions about the details laid out on the project ideas page. Just to clarify, when mentions “full-text search” and “automatic extraction of metadata” is that the data needed for citations? e.g. Author, publisher, etc

I’m also a little confused on the steps needed to program the interface. Is it simply going to be an option that a user can click on (graphically a button on the toolbar) for the user uploads a pdf? What else do I need to consider when undertaking this project?
