I was working very hard on the new version of citeproc-java lately and I’m glad to announce that it has just been released. The highlights in version 0.6 are:
citeproc-java -b references.bib -s ieeeto create a bibliography in ieee style for your BibTeX input file. This feature makes the library very useful even for non-programmers.
I particularly like the new command line tool that can be used to generate citations and bibliographies from various sources such as BibTeX files or your Mendeley Web catalog. I expect the tool to be quite useful for the following users:
In order to use the tool you just have to download citeproc-java and extract the ZIP file. Then you can run the following command to convert a BibTeX file to a bibliography using the
ieee style, for example:
citeproc-java -b references.bib
If you want to generate a bibliography that only contains items with certain citation IDs (for example Fowler_2010 and Kisker_2012) use the following command:
citeproc-java -b references.bib Fowler_2010 Kisker_2012
The tool will even notify you if you misspelled a citation ID:
citeproc-java: unknown citation id: Fwler_2010 Did you mean `Fowler_2010'?
If you want to connect to your Mendeley Web account, use the following command:
citeproc-java --mendeley Fowler_2010 Kisker_2012
The tool has a lot more to offer. For more information run
citeproc-java --help or read the library’s documentataion.
