A library to handle BibTeX bibliographic data.
biblib is a (pure) python library that provides several useful classes, methods and functions to work with BibTeX bibliographic data within your python scripts.
The idea is to enabling you to prepare your own tools, which are specifically tailored to your own literature investigation scheme, comfortably.
The following code will add a citation by their DOI:
import biblib # create database from BibTeX file dbObj = biblib.db_from_file('bibtex.bib') # retrieve bibliographic meta data by DOI entryObj = biblib.entry_from_doi('10.1088/0959-5309/43/5/301') # add new entry to database dbObj.add_entry(entryObj) # write database to a new BibTeX file biblib.db_to_file(dbObj,'new.bib')
You can install the latest version from the Python package index. From the command line, enter (in some cases you have to precede the command with sudo):
$ pip install biblib --pre
Because currently only a development version is available, you need to use the --pre option.
To install it manual, download the archive, unpack it, and type (in some cases you have to precede the command with sudo):
$ python setup.py install
Documentation including installation procedure, tutorial and API: http://pythonhosted.org/biblib/
The complete source code will soon be available on sourceforge.
Thanks to Jackalope for his support while planing and designing the biblib, and for his future contributions.
