This package manages a shared database of bibliography references which can be used to generate bibtex (to include in your paper) and HTML files (for your publications page).
If you're in a hurry and just want a bib file, here you go:
Adding new entries to the database
To add a new entry, append to
data/<username>.rb, for example:
entry!('liang11dcs', author('Percy Liang and Michael I. Jordan and Dan Klein'), title('Learning Dependency-Based Compositional Semantics'), acl(2011), pages(590, 599), nil)
pages are what you'd expect from bibtex.
You can also use macros such as
acl(2011) (defined in
make it easier to type and to maintain consistency. Consistency of
capitalization and duplicate entries are automatically checked when you run
You can also import from existing bibtex (either from a file or stdin):
Paste in your bibtex format and the corresponding Ruby code will be appended to
Note: when you have finished pasting your bibtex at the command line, type
Ctrl-D to terminate stdin. The script will then continue.
There might be errors so it's a good idea to double check what's been added.
After you do this, make sure you rebuild
git add data/<username>.rb if necessary. To commit your changes, do
git commit -am "add",
git push or make a pull request.
Printing/querying the database
To output a bibtex file:
./generate.rb bib out=all.bib
To output an HTML file:
./generate.rb html out=all.html
To filter the entries:
./generate.rb html author='Percy Liang' title=Publications out=pliang.html ./generate.rb bib search='hidden markov model' ./generate.rb bib tags='semantic parsing'
