Guardian Grab eases the process of downloading the digital editions of The Guardian and The Observer newspapers, which are available through Newspaper Direct. Guardian Grab interacts with the Newspaper Direct site to log-on, identify available sections, and download the newspaper in the PDF, mobi (Kindle), or ePub formats. Downloads are arranged by paper, date, and format under a specified directory. Guardian Grab also maintains a directory holding the latest copy of each paper for easy syncing.
MALODOS helps you to scan, store, and easily retrieve all your personal documents. Its storage format is open and documented, so your document archive can remain accessible even without MALODOS. The documents themselves are stored as standard PDF files, while their metadata (such as title, tags, and description) are stored into a separate SQLite database in an open format. With MALODOS, you can also manage existing files in PDF, JPEG, TIFF, and other formats, so you can still use the documents that you've already scanned. You can connect to any external OCR program to give access to a fulltext search feature.
PdfMasher is a tool to convert PDF files containing text into a ready-for-ebook set of HTML files. Most ebook readers support PDF files natively, but it's often a real pain to read those documents because you can't control the font size of the document and have to resort to the zooming feature instead. Another drawback of PDFs on ebook readers is that annotations are not supported. Unlike other tools that convert PDFs to ebooks, PdfMasher does not try to guess the role of each piece of text in the PDF, and instead asks the user about the role of each piece of text, and does so in an efficient manner.
kbd-cheatsheet is a small application that generates a list of Eclipse keyboard shortcuts from Eclipse's CSV export function. The shortcuts are grouped, sorted, and arranged according to user defined settings. Since the basis for the sheet is your current Eclipse installation, everybody can create their own personalised version.
Book Manager is intended to provide a simple interface to manage a collection of e-books. Users can also view their e-books, as well as many other files in tabs. With the collection disabled, Book Manager can also be used as a tab-supporting shell for the popular KDE PDF reader Okular.
The Hummus PDF Writer library allows you to generate PDF files. It was developed with a principal “one-off” method of generating PDF files. Adhering to this idea, it is both fast and retains a low memory signature regardless of how large the file grows. The library has a set of high level features for adding content to a PDF, including creation of pages; drawing primitives and any of the simple PDF operators for drawing content; embedding of PDF, JPEG, and TIFF images; Unicode text support with Type1, TrueType, and OpenType fonts; and defining reusable objects using XObject Forms. You can also use the library as a PDF parser. The library is very extensible. It is easy to implement more PDF features by using the lower level set of methods, which provide access to the PDF building blocks themselves. Adding a feature requires you to be familiar with the PDF formatting of that feature, but will not require you to write the basic PDF building blocks, as the library handles this.
I, Librarian is a PDF manager or PDF organizer that allows individual researchers or a group of researchers to create an annotated collection of PDF articles. Users may build the virtual library collaboratively, thus sharing the workload of literature mining. It enables smart browsing and fast searching in reference data and PDF files, and includes an advanced tool for mining scientific literature from PubMed, PubMed Central, NASA ADS, arXiv, IEEE Xplore, and HighWire Press.
HomeGed Scan is scanning software that was designed to offer power as well as simplicity of use. Acquired or imported files can be combined into multi-page documents and saved in formats such as PDF, TIFF, JPEG, and PNG. It supports network scanners using TWAIN or SANE protocols and flat-beds and document feeders.
