Bibmanager: Automated BibTeX Management for Astronomers
2020-11-08, 17:10–17:10, Posters

I will present bibmanager, a command-line application that automates
the handling of BibTeX entries for LaTeX projects and synchronization
with ADS. Bibmanager maintains a centralized BibTeX database that
provides automated bibfile compilation for LaTeX projects. A simple
interface facilitates building the database by merging bibfiles,
fetching entries from ADS, or editing manually the database (all with
automated duplicate detection). Bibmanager can also double as a PDF
database of the entries. The interaction with the ADS API enables
automated synchronization of the database with ADS, or perform queries
to add entries or fetch their PDFs. Bibmanager is available at PyPI
(pip install bibmanager) and fully documented at
https://bibmanager.rtfd.io
