QuickCite

Simplify your (academic) life. Instead of manually hunting down references, let QuickCite do the work for you!

Quickstart

Installation:

gem install quickcite

Usage

On the command line:

quickcite -b paper.bib *.tex

Now add a reference in your paper:

I really liked this paper: \cite{PowerPiccolo}

But of course, this one was even better: \cite{Mapreduce}

That's it! Any missing references will be queried on DBLP, and you can accept the paper you intended:

Missing reference for PowerPiccolo

Makefile Integration

For the really lazy amongst us, try adding it to your Makefile rule:

paper.pdf: ...
  quickcite -b paper.bib *.tex
  ...

QuickCite relies on the excellent bibtex-ruby package.
