- Paperpile still does not have a proper API (we are all impatient for a REST API!!), and since
- Paperile file field is unusual (different from Zotero; it includes “StarredPapers” in the path name, …)
here is a little bash script that checks wether a downloaded file is newer than the file in your current directory and fixes up paperpile’s exported bibfile so that emacs / helm-bibtex / ivy-bibtex can work smoothly with it. E.g., that allows to open the PDF from a cite command with 1-2 keypresses.
Happy to answer questions, if anybody finds that useful.
