I’m happy to announce the first release of hs-bibutils, the Haskell
bindings to Chris Putnam’s bibutils.
Bibutils is a library and a set of bibliographic utilities to
interconvert between various bibliography database formats using a
common MODS-format XML intermediate.
hs-bibutils is meant to provide to citeproc-hs, and indirectly to
pandoc, the ability to parse all the bibliographic database formats
supported by bibutils.
citeproc-hs is a Haskell implementation of the Citation Style
Language. It adds to pandoc a Bibtex like citation and bibliographic
formatting and generation facility.
hs-bibutils can be downloaded from Hackage:
The project home page can be found here:
INSTALLATION AND KNOWN ISSUES
bibutils builds, without installing it, a static library to be used to
compile the various converting utilities. But in order to use the
library with pandoc (or ghci) it is necessary to create and install a
shared object before building and installing hs-bibutils.
hs-bibutils provides a patch to the bibutils building scripts to
enable the shared object creation and installation. Alternatively a
patched version of the latest release of bibutils can be downloaded
from the project home page, where all the needed information for the
installation are provided:
I was able to test the patched building scripts only on a Linux
machine with a x86 system. Please report me any success or failure on
To submit bug reports you can either contact me directly or use the
citeproc-hs bug tracking system available at the following address:
Hope you’ll enjoy,
