Two Columns: The Definitive Source for Definitive Sources ========================================================= A simple web app to allow for the storage and retrieval of academic papers that are freely available through various online sources. The idea came about after a conversation with a colleage about how it's not easy to find these primary sources indexed according to our interests, and usually remembering the titles and authors is a challenge when remembering concepts or keywords isn't. The modern web programming community has a lot to learn from the relatively young but exceedingly well researched and funded past of academic Computer Science, and this knowledge should be made available to anyone with internet access. Implementation Details ====================== Two columns is written in Rails 3, and is deployed on the Heroku Cedar stack. TODO ==== - Allow multiple tag selection/filtering - Decide if we need some kind of auth - Do some actual interface work (I wish the font could be Computer Modern) - Allow PDF->HTML conversion
