Implementation of the Mendeley API in R (now on CRAN)

branch: master

Installing RMendeley 1.00

Mendeley 1.00 requires ROAuth 0.9.2 which is unlikely to ever be available on CRAN. Therefore you MUST install ROAUth from github before installing this version. There is no futher development planned for the package at this time.



A full RMendeley tutorial is available on the ropensci website.
