A translator of BibTeX to HTML.

Project description


Convert BibTeX .bib files into a directory of HTML files.

The created HTML provide individual HTML pages for publications by year, publication type (category), author, keyword, and funding. A single-page view is also available. pybib2web provides semantics and easy customizability of each BibTeX element through HTML ids and classes.

This makes it easy to choose the data to display and style the bibliography to your needs.

You can find a raw example in doc/example/index.html. This example is generated with:

pybib2web --config doc/example/config.yml --output doc/example doc/example/db.bib

Two pages that use pybib2web with styling:


  • python 3.8

Optional requirements

detex is required to detexify BibTeX-entries that use LaTeX commands, e.g., \sc{} or ~. If detex is not installed, these LaTeX commands will be visible in the HTML output.


After cloning the repository, run pip install -e . to install pybib2web and its dependencies.


Run pybib2web --help to show all available command-line options.

Basic usage:

pybib2web BIBFILE(s)

This will write a directory of HTML files to bib/. The index of these files is bib/index.html.

This will, among other things, create an individual publication page for all authors that appear in the given BibTeX files. Often, one only wants to create these author-centered pages for individual authors- for example for oneself or a specific group of people. pybib2web can be configured through a config file to do this:

pybib2web --config CONFIG_YAML BIBFILE(s)
