Fetch citation information, given a Digital Object Identifier
pybib is a super-easy way to get citations for your LaTeX document. Instead of typing out BibTeX entries yourself, just give pybib the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) of the resource you want to cite and it will get all the information for you. Then, you can just add the citation it gives you to your BibTeX file. Easy!
The package is available on PyPi and can be installed with the following command:
$ pip3 install --user pybib
For user-only installs, pip installs scripts to the directory ~/.local/bin, so make sure it’s in your path. If you would prefer to install it system-wide, just leave out the --user flag.

$ bib get 10.1112/plms/s2-42.1.230
