Announcement: zot4rst 0.2 prerelease
- supports inline and footnote citations with the same syntax,
automatically inserting footnotes at the proper place
- fully pandoc_ compatible citation syntax, e.g. ``[*see* @cite p. 10 and
- user friendly citation keys, powered by a keymap file
- new ``zupdatekeymap`` for managing mapping files automatically
- separation of core citation parsing from Zotero interaction, opening
the possibility for stand-alone implementations without Zotero (as
- ``zrst2rst`` script allows the generation of plain RST files from Zotero
enabled files, for distribution to others
The new version is currently available only as part of zotero-plain:
- or http://bitbucket.org/egh/zotero-plain
but should be available as version 0.2 on PyPI after a little more
What is zot4rst?
zot4rst is an extension to docutils_ that allows users to write RST
documents using citations from the Zotero_ library. These citations
are then formatted according to the citation style of the user’s
choice when the user generates PDF, HTML, ODT, etc. versions. The user
can also generate an RST file which contains regular, non-citation
For example, the RST snippet::
... as we know :xcite:`[@item1 pp. 33, 35-37 and nowhere else]`, ...
will be transformed into, for example, an inline reference:
| ... as we know (Doe 1996 pp. 33, 35-37 and nowhere else), ...
with a full bibliography at the end, or a footnote:
| ... as we know¹ ...
| 1. Doe, John. “Water is wet”, Journal of liquid studies, 1(1):1-10
