Gnotero

Score 50%
Description:

Gnotero is a Python Gtk application which provides access to your Zotero references. Zotero is an excellent open source reference manager, but it lacks a simple and direct way to access your references at the click of a button. That is why I created this simple program, which lives in the system tray and allows you to search through your references by Author and/ or Year of Publication. If a PDF file is attached to a reference you can open it directly from within Gnotero.

CHANGELOG

0.43
- Replaced the count() function in zotero_item.match() with 'in' statements

rather than simply taking the first matching note
