This software has been built due to a need felt for a proper
recommendation system for publicly available scholarly/research works.

It classifies documents and uses personalization features and content-based algorithm to
suggest/recommend similar ones, possibly of interest to the user.

_Note:_ Currently, full-functionality is offered by combining this package and another one,
that offeres web interface (Django-based).

**Installation**

```
$ git clone https://github.com/arcolife/scholarec.git
$ cd scholarec/
$ sh setup.sh
```

* See INSTALL for detailed instructions.

**Test**

* Optionally, to test if installed, look for a description on executing:
```
$ python -m scholarec
```

* To see if the scripts runs without error:
```
$ ./tests/run-tests.sh
$ ./tests/test.py
```

**Usage**

* To use the module in a Python script, simply import:
```python
import scholarec
```

* To check a sample run output, open log/sample_run.txt

* To go for a sample run:

```
$ ./tests/query_parse
```

Note: For developing a small database from arXiv, you need to run
the query_parse script and accept "Extract PDF" option for extracting
related pdf's, converting them to plain text and extracting interesting
words that would later be used for recommendations and suggestions.


* A simple arXiv API call can be achieved by executing the following sample code:
```python
import scholarec
from scholarec.base.arxiv import DocumentArXiv
url = "http://export.arxiv.org/api/query?search_query=all:%22higgs%22&start=0&max_results=2"
from urllib2 import urlopen
query_xml = urlopen(url)
doc = DocumentArXiv(query_xml)
data_dict = doc.extract_tags()
for entry_id in data_dict.keys():
print "ID: %s" % (entry_id)
print(data_dict[entry_id]), "\n"
```
