Live citations in IPython notebooks


To install this:

pip install cite2c
python -m cite2c.install
(Start/Restart the Notebook server)

It requires Jupyter Notebook 4.2 or above.

After (re)starting the notebook server, you will see two new toolbar buttons: toolbar buttons. The left one inserts a citation at the current point in a Markdown cell. The right one inserts a bibliography.

This extension has two main components:

  • UI for finding citations from a Zotero library and inserting them into Markdown cells. The citations are stored in the notebook metadata, and referenced by an ID.
  • Code to run citeproc-js when a Markdown cell is rendered, rendering both bibliographies and inline citations.
