Couch Bib

This is a couchapp for managing your (non-)scientific literature. Think of it as a distributed version of CiteULike.

Features

  • attach custom files (like the article's PDF)
  • take notes for yourself
  • tag each item and browse through your collection with a tag-cloud
  • search the items using couchdb-lucene
  • Customizable literature quotations

Planned Features

  • central server hosted somewhere in order to allow for collaboration with other people
  • custom version of couchdbx-app in order to bundle a standalone-app

Installation

Clone the project:

$ git clone http://github.com/truemped/couchbib.git
$ cd couchbib

Initialize the git submodules

$ git submodule init
$ git submodule update

Create a .couchapprc for your needs. Example:

$ echo "{ \"env\" : { \"default\" : { \"db\" : \"http://localhost:5984/couchbib\" } } }" > .couchapprc

Push the couchapp

$ couchapp push

Now visit: your couchbib

If you want to perform fulltext indexing, please install couchdb-lucene.
