What is Babel ?
Babel was an attempt to develop a PDF document manager.
Actually it features:
a PDF browser that permit to navigate in the file system, display PDF documents and sort (move) them in a similar way than the Geeqie image viewer.
a GUI showing the PDF document metadatas, pages and corresponding text blocks.
tools to generate thumbnails, extract text from pages
a MuPDF binding using CFFI ( it need a dynamic library and API update )
a BibTeX parser
Lexique tool using British National Corpus
some experimental codes to extract metadata, text, and index them.
