Zotero (a citation managment former for firefox/XUL only) now gets a standalone variant called "Zotero Everywhere". At the moment it is alpha, but an ebuild as soon as it achieves beta would be nice.

I second this motion. Zotero is a very important piece of referencing FOSS. It is unfortunate that the Openoffice.org integration with firefox requires proprietary Java for versions of firefox >=3.6
Now, the official version is out --- Zotero standalone 3.0
It would be very useful if there is an ebuild for this.

This is a local ebuild I wrote to install Zotero standalone on my laptop. Zotero will start from cli however it doesn't have menu or icons sections in the script as I as yet don't understand how to do this. I will look at this in the coming weeks.

Zotero officially announced to discontinue it's browser based version due to new security restrictions in the firefox plugin system. To be able to continuously use existing databases it will be important to be able to run the stand alone application.

Yes, now there is only one (i.e. standalone version). It would be nice to get it into portage.
Here are the "build" instructions of Zotero:
This includes loading a firefox from somewhere and a modified prebuilt poppler.
It seems, that the standalone version of Zotero is an old Firefox together with Zotero as addon.

This is based on the other ebuild.
This is the right way to do it! It should have bean zotero-bin since the start, and hopefully we will make an ebuild to compile zotero. Thanks for the contribution.
Thank you very much for the ebuild!
I cleaned it up a bit to make repoman happy and put it into my private overlay.
Building Zotero Anywhere from the sources seems to be a formidable task, because it is written in Node.js, and has lots of dependencies. One would have to write an elaborate ebuild similar to that of app-editors/atom.
