Workflow for working with an Android tablet

I recently bought a new Android tablet. Now, I can read all the papers on the tablet and even create nice annotations using Xodo.
I synchronize the PDFs and .bib files using a git repo, I already had since using Jabref. I do this on Android using Termux and Termux-Widget for some easier push/pull.
Unfortunately, there seems to be not much applications which can handle biblatex files on Android.
I summarized my results regarding Android apps already here: https://github.com/JabRef/www.jabref.org/issues/90
Library works great but is has one big disadvantage: you can not edit the biblatex file, especially not the read status, stars or comments.
So the big question is: is there any good method of reading and annotating all the pdfs on android, then push it via git and then adding read status/comments/ranking on the PC later? Okay - usually the PC is not far from where I’m but what if I read like 10 articles?

So there are some ideas: You could read the git log and search for all the changed files in the biblatex file. Then I could write a script which adds the read status and asks for a rating and comment. This could also add keywords and move to groups etc. But I think this does not scale too well.
The best would be an Android application which can do this for you, but I already heard that there are plans for JabRef on Android but nothing concrete.
So maybe there are other Android apps which I havn’t looked at, or other ideas how to manage this transition?

I finally got gradle building working with Library and also patched a few things: https://github.com/reox/library/tree/gradlify
I already hacked in the read status and the ranking, and also added some tablet layout, which condenses the view a little bit.

Are there any keen android developers who want to take the Library source and enhance it into a JabRef compatible tool?
The main things which are missing are probably: A nice tree view of the groups; showing comments, abstract and tags; be able to add comments, read status, ranking, tags, …

I’ve no experience with this, but it should be possible to bring JabRef directly to android using https://gluonhq.com/products/mobile/javafxports/

Definitely sounds interesting! But my Android dev foo is not so advanced, that I would try to port everything over :wink:

I added a few more nice things to Library: The relevance and priority fields are now in there as well. But the code I wrote looks quite ugly… Last time I wrote something in Java is now years ago :smiley:

Have you checked to see if the original dev is still working on Library? Their last commit was in 2018 it seems

It does not look like he is still working on it.
