A small collection of bibtex utilities (incl. a minimal parser)

Project description

This package for now only includes a quite basic parser for BibTeX which converts a bibliography and its entries into simple dict-like data structures and also checks crossreferences if used.

A simple example on how to use it:

from zs.bibtex.parser import parse_string
from StringIO import StringIO

data = '''@article{mm09,
    author = {Max Mustermann},
    title = {The story of my life},
    year = {2009},
    journal = {Life Journale}

bibliography = parse_string(data)
article = bibliography['mm09']

A bibliography as well as each entry in it offers a validate() method which checks aspects like cross-references on the bibliography and fields on the entries. It also supports an optional raise_unsupported keyword-argument which raises an exception once a possibly unsupported field is used in an entry.

The information about what fields are required and optional for what kind of entry is based on the BibTeX article on Wikipedia.
