bivy

bivy - (*b*ibliography *i*n *v*im and *y*aml) is a lightweight alternative to bibliographic management systems. bivy aims to provides simple tools to create a bibliography in whatever format you need, all from bibliographies stored in a yaml file (the bivy file).

History

I wanted a simple bibliography generator for use on any platform that worked well with OpenOffice. Having tried my hand a few times at it, I think I finally have a light footprint system that is easy to setup and gets the job done.

Bivy sacks are a lightweight alternative to a tent. (I'm sure you see the parallel) Also, you don't really *have to* use vim, it just worked for the acronymn and it is really handy for editing your yaml file.

Features

  • yaml based bibliography files

  • lookup of bibliographic information from a pubmed ID

  • formatting of citations in a document based on identifiers

  • modular creation of bibliographies in any format or output

  • easy addition of new formats or outputs

  • simple modification of OpenOffice documents

Current Focus

  • Simple OpenOffice support: 1) replaces citations with correct citation

number 2) outputs bibliography in html that can be directly imported into document.

  • PubMed support (downloads xml from web and adds to bivy file)
