A BibTeX-compatible bibliography processor in Python

Project description


latex foo.tex
pybtex foo.aux
latex foo.tex
latex foo.tex


Pybtex reads citation information from a file and produces a formatted bibliography. BibTeX style files are supported. Alternatively it is possible to write styles in Python.

Pybtex currently understands the following bibliography formats:

  • BibTeX

  • BibTeXML

  • YAML-based format

The resulting bibliography may be output in one of the following formats (not supported by legacy BibTeX styles):

  • LaTeX

  • HTML

  • plain text

Download and Install

You are strongly encouraged to use our Bazaar repository instead of tarballs:

To run unit tests:
