>I took a shortcut path to print out bibliographies from *.bib files, involving, on GNU/Linux, the installation of the cb2Bib package. In the "tools" directory of the installation is a script, "bib2pdf" that makes short work of the job of printing a structured bibliography. I went to some additional extent, with the help of the developer of this package, to edit the source code to enable editing of the Annotate field from cb2Bib. I think this is not how this program is meant to be run, but it is part and parcel of my workflow now, for generating on the fly bibliography printouts. Cb2Bib is a remarkable tool for getting citations into the bibliography, semi-intelligently. It does more than I have gotten my head around. It runs only on GNU/Linux, and possibly OS/X, any system with bash and LaTeX of some kind installed. The script is pretty much hard-coded to print certain fields, but can be tweaked to include the Annotation field. This involved also a couple of minor edits to a *bst file. It has all been worth it, especially with the ability to use cb2Bib. Again, the script can be run on a *.bib file, on its own.
>I know. I know. I took the shortcut path, and missed out on all the fun of learning to do it with LaTeX or TeX, bibTeX, or bibLaTeX, etc. But it has indeed been much more workable, for me, than any of the skeleton files I have tried to use. For me. YMMV.
I'm not entirely sure what this does but I was trying to make a notebook that would print the citation with
"bibentry" along with some text. Usually the bibentry is a citation just downloaded using another script
which takes the url on the clipboard and attempts to get the bibtex (usually based on publisher info or extracting
doi and calling crossref). This works pretty well but alternatives may be of interest. Also curious if you can just
make a bst file to convert a bib file to xml or json although the normal flow would then leave you having to extract
that from the pdf file :) bib files could end up with a lot of format variations that you may want to clean up by converting
to a more general format, do the "clean up " and then convert back to bib files. I've had some issues with full text
url's and my automated script inserts comment on original source url and ultimately where it got the alleged bibtex.
I can write simple scripts to insert those into the bibtex entry but then I may want to go verify or do other things
that require accurate parsing.
