Fetch BibTeX citation information, given a Digital Object Identifier

Project description

pybib is an 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.

Installation

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.

Usage examples

Get a citation:

$ bib get 10.1112/plms/s2-42.1.230

Get a citation and add it to your bibliography file:

$ bib get 10.1145/159544.159617 >> citations.bib

Get a citation and add it to your bibliography file, running it through bibtool first to format the entry and auto-generate a citation key:

$ bib get 10.1145/159544.159617 | bibtool >> citations.bib

Searching

Search for a resource:

$ bib search name of the resource

Get the citation for search result number N:

$ bib search name of the resource --get N
