Community Wishlist Survey 2022/Citations/Enable Citoid to generate citation from a PDF link/Proposal

Other languages:
  • Problem: Citoid doesn't solve the url when the link is a PDF document, giving an error message.
  • Proposed solution: Enable citoid to get the metadata from the PDF and fill the fields required.
  • Who would benefit: All editors, especially the users of the VisualEditor.
  • More comments: As user Mvolz commented, maybe it is tricky to automatically assign which kind of cite corresponds to the file (journal, book, etc). If the metadata doesn't provide this information, a solution could be to let the user select the appropriate one.
