    We'd like to see at least one PR being submitted before application review, because we'd like too see that you already have set up the coding environment correctly, that you got at least a little bit familiar with the codebase, know where to find what, learned a bit about our review process, are able to adapt the code style jabref uses and o would say it's also important for you to see, if you can work with our contribution guidelines.
    Just pick one simple 'good first issue' and solve it, those should not last long to solve.

    Respected mentors,

    Please review my first GSoC proposal for the project: Mindmaps for JabRef,

    The link to my proposal is: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1df2qWxYV751-zvmJn9sWH7N4u404V1b_/view?usp=sharing
    Please help me in making this proposal better. Please leave suggestions and your thoughts.

    Christoph
    @Siedlerchr
    @Taijasi-Kaveri Thanks for your interest. I only took a quick look at your proposal and I think you are outlining a more complex way as necessary. JavafX supports the creationg of 2D Shapes already
    maybe you also find another existing one
    Christoph
    @Siedlerchr
    @Taijasi-Kaveri Please submit your proposal to GSOC, otherwise we can't judge your proposal
    Taijasi Kaveri
    @Taijasi-Kaveri
    @Siedlerchr thank you so much sir for your valuable feedback.I will implement it on my project and will submit the proposal on time.
    Taijasi Kaveri
    @Taijasi-Kaveri
    @Siedlerchr sir ,actually in the project description it was mentioned that the project requires skill at Javascript/Typescript/web frameworks.Thats why I thought of implementing the code by using a Javascript library.
    Christoph
    @Siedlerchr
    yeah, we discussed about it
    Carl Christian Snethlage
    @calixtus
    Important thing is right now to submit the proposal to GSOC, because tomorrow the applications are closed.
    We will review all the proposals in the next few weeks and maybe discuss them with you and the other applicants. We cannot yet promise anything, as our final decision, who gets selected, depends very much on all the proposals also in comparison, it depends on if we believe that this feature can be successfully implemented based on the proposal etc. So please don't expect too much now, the decision will be surely not easy.

    Help pages moved: e.g https://docs.jabref.org/import-export/openofficeintegration is not there anymore.
    JabRef 5.2 will not find the moved pages. Versioning (docs.jabref.org/5.3/...) might help in future.
    Christoph
    @Siedlerchr
    Hmm thanks for the hint regarding the help pages

    Unfornately nobody has contacted me. I have not got any helpful feedback. I wrote some code that expanded the JabRef GUI for Integration of word support and wrote a little program that tried the Microsoft JavaScript-API. My proposal was not accepted. What a bummer.

    @Taijasi-Kaveri
    Mentors, I couldn't get selected this year in GSOC'21. Can you please explain what was less in my proposal so that next time I can make it better?

    Hey everyone wanting to be an active member of the Google Summer of Code happening. Maybe you know that an organization has a limited number of slots available. Let us outline what makes an outstanding proposal from our side:

    • submitted 4 weeks before the deadline. This allows us to provide feedback, which can be incorpated.
    • 5 pull requests to JabRef code before submitting a propsal. On the one hand, this enables the applicants to get into the code before the start (and thus an estimation of the diffiultiy). On the other hand, this shows us true interest in our project.

    For sure, this is impossible when seeing actual workload of possible mentees. However, it should be possible to submit an initial propsal two weeks before the deadline and hand in one serious pull request.

    We warmthly invite you to prepare for GSoC 2022 and take part in open source development this year.

    For more information see https://google.github.io/gsocguides/student/being-turned-down.

    Hello Everyone. I am trying to setup jabref locally but facing this issue java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Unsupported class file major version 60 while doing gradlew assemble or gradlew clean. I see that its gradlew java compatibility issue but I have the correct java version installed (16.0.1) and jmods are in the right place. Any hints on how to get over this?
    Christoph
    @Siedlerchr
    HI, I encountered a simliar issue. The problem might be the gradle wrapper beeing to old. Just got to jabref/gradle/gradle.properties and change the distribution url to https\://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-7.0.2-bin.zip
    that should work then

    Thank you @Siedlerchr . My build is passing now.

    Hello, can't resolve these issue, could somebody help me?

    Execution failed for task ':startScripts'.
    > Could not resolve all files for configuration ':runtimeClasspath'.
       > Could not find javafx-base-16-linux.jar (org.openjfx:javafx-base:16).
         Searched in the following locations:

    There is only javafx-base-16-mac.jar

    This error looks like you may hove not setup up jdk and/or javafx properly. Please try again setting up your working environment according to our guide here - maybe also again from scratch. Please also check if your environment variables are set up right. Maybe try to call javac -version from bash to see, if you have the right jdk configured.

    This exception gets thrown on the latest commit (Win 10):
    ERROR org.jabref.gui.JabRefMain - Could not access app-directory at C:\Users\Timucin\AppData\Local\org.jabref\JabRef
    java.nio.file.NoSuchFileException: C:\Users\Timucin\AppData\Local\org.jabref\JabRef
    Is this file supposed to exist?

    This is caused by getFulltextIndexPath() in the BibDatabaseContext class

            LOGGER.info("Index path for {} is {}", getDatabasePath().get(), appData.toString());

        }
    Commenting out the logger info fixes it
    Christoph
    @Siedlerchr
    Ah thanks for the info, it's related to the new pdf search feature. Can you please open a new PR?
    I guess the logger needs to be moved before the return

    Sure, I'll do it tommorow. Should I also open a new issue for it?

    Hello! I'm a new contributor and I'm looking for some help getting the local workspace set up. I'm using the guide. I'm at this part of the guide: "After that, you can use the Gradle Tool Window to build all parts JabRef and run it. To do so, expand the JabRef project in the Gradle Tool Window and navigate to Tasks. From there, you can
    Build and run JabRef by double-clicking JabRef | Tasks | application | run." However, I'm unable to expand the JabRef project as it says. Any ideas what I might've done wrong? I'll attach an image as well.

    Looks like an issue gradle recently had with java.
    Please make sure you have the latest JDK16 and JavaFX16 installed. Then make sure your local main branch is up to date (git fetch --all, then git checkout main, then git merge upstream/main)
    (You can't see the gradle tasks because gradle fails to build it' s buildscript)
