This is a simple web interface above libbmc and especially CERMINE to extract references from a given PDF file.


  • Clone this repository.
  • Install requirements: pip install -r requirements.txt
  • Create a config file: cp config.py.example config.py and edit it according to your needs.
  • Run it: python3 ./main.py. Head to http://localhost:8080 to see it live.

With the default configuration, it will forward uploaded papers to CERMINE API, which is really slow and puts a lot of charge on these servers. You should download an executable JAR from their repo to your server and indicate the path to this JAR file in the config.py file.
