Support importing meta-data from arxiv.org

It would be great if you would support importing meta-data from arxiv.org for selected papers. Or importing directly from the html page (example: https://arxiv.org/abs/1811.03600) instead of only from the pdf.

More generally, I would like to be able to import metadata from journal pages, doi references, etc.

At least in arXiv's abstract pages, DOM elements are well annotated by classes.

And regex parsing also seems to work well. 


If there is some way to register user-defined mapping(*) from page elements to meta information, I will contribute.


(*) e.g. by JSON


{

  "domain": "http?::/arxiv.org/abs/*",

  "title": [ "xpath://h1[@class='title']/text()", "regex:/^Title:(.*)$/¥1/" ],

  ....

This is a must have feature for researchers in machine learning, computer vision, and physics fields.
