    Hi, sorry for the inconvenience. Running gradlew eclipse should be sufficient to get most stuff running. So no need do manually
    But there is still some thing odd going on, as some language resources are not beeing found correctly
    And you should update to eclipse 2019-09
    I will try to look into it next week. In the meantime use intellij or gradlew run directly to compile stuff
    Please open an issue and ping me so that I don't forget it. Thanks in advance

    Thanks, I've raised an issue for it, JabRef/jabref#5486

    Is there any plan for an chrome extension?
    Tobias Diez
    @tobiasdiez
    Yes, there is: JabRef/jabref#1284. Before that, we have to stabilize and cleanup the firefox extension. If you know a bit of add-on development, contributions are very welcome: https://github.com/JabRef/JabFox

    If someone has experience with chrome extension development there's a repo with a first draft (not working): JabRef/JabFox#81
    The addon starts but it doesn't connect to the python script used by the native messaging host.

    Dear Jabref developer community,
    I would like to introduce myself. My name is Kai and I am currently studying Energy Informatics in Hagenberg, Austria. I've been writing software since 9 years. Besides studying, I'm working as a researcher/data scientist in a company which builds PV inverters. This is also why I'm using Jabref nearly on a daily basis, although I'm definitely not a hardcore user.
    I really like Jabref and I would like to help you push the 5.0 release. My strengths are not in the field of Java, but actually in the field of Swift development but I'm curious to learn Java and JavaFX. I'm working on a Mac so I can test Mac related stuff, if there is a need for it.
    And sorry, that I didn't introduce myself earlier. I know that I should have done that before creating my first PR.

    @Ka0o0 Willkommen bei JabRef! Thanks for using and even better contributiong to JabRef! :+1: And a big thanks already for your PRs. If you already know Swift, Java should not be that hard. Even JavaFX is not that hard once you understand the core concepts. If you want to dig into JavaFX, we have collected some resources in our wiki https://github.com/JabRef/jabref/wiki/Code---JavaFX

    Hi Christoph,
    Thank you very much. I will definitely have a look into it! First I will try to finish up the two outstanding PRs though.

    @Siedlerchr
    No hurry. We all develop JabRef in our free time. And of course don't hesitate to ask any questions or if you encounter any problems. 👷‍♀️👷‍♂️

    @Ka0o0 Also a warm welcome from my side. Good to hear that a Mac user is here. I once had a meeting in Munich with a PostDoc and he very much complained about the JabRef look and feel. Installation, table appearance, etc. Maybe, it get's better with you having on board here :)

    Hi @/all , for all the latest development version now requires jdk13 for building from source

    Hi, does anybody know if #5615 is Mac related or is the feature in general not implemented yet?
    I'm not sure if this is a mac-only issue. So if you have the time, please try to reproduce it and report your findings in the issue. Thanks!

    @Ka0o0
    Thanks Tobias. Apparently JavaFX does some weird calculations. #wheneveriwillunderstanditwillbealuckyday

    Hey there! I am new to this community and want to start contributing but wondering from where to start may u please help me with some links or references to get started with.
    Linus Dietz
    @LinusDietz
    @manav014 there are several ways to this that have proven to be fruitful: if there is something in jabref that you would like to improve, just go ahead and fix it. Or start with an issue (https://github.com/JabRef/jabref/issues), potentially one that is labeled as “good first issue”. Check out the documentation how to set up a local workspace here: https://github.com/JabRef/jabref/wiki/Guidelines-for-setting-up-a-local-workspace

    This morning I had an issue which guides you through a lot of code. The fix might be a one-liner. Maybe you could give it a try? koppor/jabref#371
    Oliver Kopp
    @koppor
    Maybe koppor/jabref#377 is even more rewarding!

    Hello, I'm new here and I want to contribute in some issues but I have a question, maybe you can guide me on this. How does the application manage the ISBN or book title to create a reference?
    Christoph
    @Siedlerchr
    Thanks for your interest!
    For the isbn we use external services (fetcher) which provide an api and return bibtex already
    Christoph
    @Siedlerchr
    The other fetcher for reverse lookup of articles etc is crossref
    Luis Romero
    @CloudFenrir
    Thank you for answering, the external service that you mentioned is a SciendeDirect Api ?
    Christoph
    @Siedlerchr
    HI, we have multiple fetchers: https://docs.jabref.org/finding-sorting-and-cleaning-entries/import-using-online-bibliographic-database
    ISBN is handled via ebook.de and if no result is found ottobib is used

    Hello, my name is Lu and i would like to contribute. I forked the project and cloned it onto my local machine, I followed the steps on how to get the project on my local machine. I can use either of the recommended IDE's, Eclipse or InteliJ. In either case im getting errors and am not able to run the project via any of the two. I was however able to run the project from the terminal. Any help would be gladly appreciated. Thank you.

    @tobiasdiez
    Hey @ddunig2, welcome to JabRef. What kind of error do you get (say in IntellJ)? It's a bit hard to really help in this generality.
    Christoph
    @Siedlerchr
    Welcome to JabRef, it would be really helpful if you could describe the problem or the error more in detail

    @ddunig2 Download Java 13 SDK. Then try File | Settings | Build, Execution, .. | Build Tools | Gradle and specify the Java 13 SDK at the bottom.
    Basically, the documentation points this out and the error message is actually quite readable :)

    @ddunig2
    @halirutan that fixed the issue. Thank you! I will look through the guidelines for contributing and will try to pick up on a good first issue!

    @ddunig2 Have fun!

    Hey guys,
    while reading the book Java Concurrency in Practice I was thinking about some static analysis tools that I've used during my university courses to detect bugs. They proofed to be quite useful. I'm curious to try them out on JabRef. I think it will not be a easy task considering the amount of frameworks and libraries.
    We used dextool in university but I was thinking about Spotbugs. Has anyone some experience with any of such tools?

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the project and am looking to contribute. I'm working on issue #5651 and am having trouble accessing the "Custom entry types" dialog window. Any help on how to navigate there?
    Christoph
    @Siedlerchr
    @Ka0o0 Sonarcue, Spotbugs etc are all simliar. However, in practice they are too noisy, report a lot of false positives or things which aren't really critical. Regarding books, a good book for beginners is Java by Comparison (written by (ex)JabRef Developers: https://www.amazon.de/Java-Comparison-Become-Craftsman-Examples/dp/1680502875
    @cashhh Thanks for your interest! I Uploaded a bib file with a custom entry type
    when you import it and choose to import also custom entry types, the dialog from the issue should come and ask for the
