Project description

Build Status Documentation Status PyPI conda License DOI

bibmanager is a command-line based application to facilitate the management of BibTeX entries, allowing the user to:

  • Unify all BibTeX entries into a single database

  • Automate .bib file generation when compiling a LaTeX project

  • Automate duplicate detection and updates from arXiv to peer-reviewed

  • Clean up (remove duplicates, ADS update) any external bibfile

  • Keep a database of the entries’ PDFs and fetch PDFs from ADS

  • Browse interactively through the database

  • Keep track of the more relevant entries using custom-set tags

bibmanager also simplifies many other BibTeX-related tasks:

  • Add or modify entries into the bibmanager database:

    • Merging user’s .bib files

    • Manually adding or editing entries

    • Add entries from ADS bibcodes

  • entry adding via your default text editor

  • Query entries in the bibmanager database by author, year, or title keywords

  • Generate .bib files built from your .tex files

  • Compile LaTeX projects with the latex or pdflatex directives

  • Perform queries into ADS and add entries by bibcode

  • Fetch PDF files from ADS via their bibcode
