mdBook Bibfile Referencing
An mdBook preprocessor that uses Pandoc to add referencing to each chapter from a bibfile.
book.toml just specify:
[preprocessor.bibliography] command = "mdbook-bibfile-referencing bibliography.bib ieee.csl"
You must include the path to the bibliography, followed by the path to your CSL (Citation Style Language) file which defines the style of the generated references (you can download pre-made ones here).
In each chapter of your book markdown source you can use the references in the format
[@key, PAGE_NUMBER] -
see the Pandoc Citeproc Docs for the full syntax.
Make sure you have Pandoc Installed.
cargo install mdbook-bibfile-referencing
