#148 Extension point for EntryProvider

Michael G.


I'm looking for an opportunity to make BibTeX entries from 3rd party reference managers available (e.g. citavi.com). Citavi offers the possibility to export the internal data into a BibTeX file. But I don't want to this any time a new record has been entered. Citavi offers the possibility to access the underlying database directly. This is what I want to do. The results should be provided via an alternative EntryProvider.

This would mean that the teXlipse project offers the possibility to plug in this new class and replace the provided one. I'm new to eclipse plugin programming. So I don't know the exact words for what is needed. AFAIK the extension would need a custom field in the Preferences page and the Project wizard. If you can lead me, I would do the programming work an supply patches to submit into the project. I would also be willing to help out with tasks that are not so deep into eclipse, like for instance bringing the code to Java 5++ level (parametrized types, etc.).

Could I make my intentions clear? Is there anything I could make clearer?
