The goal of rbbt is to connect R to the Better Bibtex for Zotero connector. This allows the insertion of in-text citations (pandoc or LaTex style) and BibLaTex bibliography items directly into the RStudio editor using the RStudio addin, or to the console otherwise.


You can install rbbt from GitHub with:


You will also need Zotero installed and running, and the Better BibTeX for Zotero add-on installed.


Insert in-text citations using the RStudio addin (from the Addins menu), or from the console. Make sure Zotero is running when you do this!

# opens a window for citation selection


Insert bibliography text from selected items in Zotero using the RStudio Addin, or print to the console using bbt_bib_zotero():

# uses whatever is currently selected in the zotero window
