A note-taking and quote saving tool for references.

Aklaman was a tool I wrote to aid mainly with organizing learnings and relevant quotations from my own readings in University. Later versions parsed a central bibliographical database from a BibTeX file and offered features to

As at least Zotero offers similar functionalities these days Aklaman can be considered entirely superfluous.

I was the sole author of Aklaman and published a then current version on GitHub in 2016. Notably Aklaman was fully based on flat-file storage (first mainly XML, later BibTeX and JSON).


That Zotero picked up similar ideas as those represented by the tool and made similar functionality broadly available later shows their utility. For me personally Aklaman was a great help in organizing my studies as well as an important step in trying out different storage formats and writing basic parsers myself.
