Replace ADS citations with the appropriate INSPIRE ones in latex and bibtex

## Project description

Replace ADS citations with the appropriate INSPIRE ones in latex and bibtex

Why? Because ADS citation keys are not stable: they start out as something like 2019arXiv191207609s, and after being accepted to a journal turn into something like 2020PhRvD.101f4007S. This means you have to rewrite your latex, or you might even end up citing both entries!

## Installation

### From PyPI

python -m pip install ads2inspire


### From conda-forge

conda install -c conda-forge ads2inspire


### From this repository

In your Python environment from the top level of this repository run

python -m pip install .


### From GitHub

python -m pip install "git+https://github.com/duetosymmetry/ads2inspire.git#egg=ads2inspire"


## Usage

First latex/bibtex/latex your file, then run

ads2inspire [--backup] [--filter-type [ads|all]] auxfile.aux [texfile1.tex [texfile2.tex [...]]]


If your main tex file is named wonderful.tex, then your auxfile will be named wonderful.aux. ads2inspire will read the aux file, query INSPIRE, then rewrite all the texfiles named on the command line, and append to the first bibtex file named in auxfile. The option --backup will make the program write backups of the tex and bib files before rewriting them. The option --filter-type controls which keys to search for on INSPIRE: the default "ads" will only search for keys that look like ADS keys, while "all" will try all keys (aside from those that look like INSPIRE keys).

## Contributing

Note that I have done very little testing! Want to pitch in and help make this code better? Please fork and send me PRs!

TODO:

• More testing
• More filter types
• more?
