pybtex — BibTeX-compatible bibliography processor in Python

Synopsis

pybtex [ options ] auxfile.aux

Description

Pybtex reads citation information from a LaTeX .aux file and produces a formatted bibliography. Pybtex understands BibTeX .bib and .bst style files and can be used as a drop-in replacement for BibTeX.
