INSPIRE tools

This Python 3 package provides two scripts, auxtobib and blgtobib, which take a LaTeX .aux or .blg file as input. auxtobib fetches the bibtex entries for all the articles cited in the document from INSPIRE. blgtobib does the same, but only fetches those entries which are missing.

Installation

To install the package in your home directory, run

python3 -m pip install inspiretools --user

Requirements

The script requires Python 3.5+.

Usage

Given a LaTeX .aux file, simply execute

auxtobib paper.aux

and the bibtex entries will be printed to stdout. If you want to save them into a .bib file, simply use

auxtobib paper.aux > bibliography.bib

The script blgtobib will fetch only bibtex entries which are not already in the .bib file associated with your project. It uses the bibtex log file associated with the LaTeX project. For example,

blgtobib paper.blg >> bibliography.bib

will append new entries to bibliography.bib.
