api for querying bibliographies
The api should allow querying for a named bibliography.
Use case: export bibliography, generate HTML and place on home page => use researchr to maintain publications page on people’s home pages.Submitted by Karl Trygve Kalleberg on 19 November 2010 at 15:09
Good plan. Will do.
But would you want JSON, or just pre-formatted HTML?
I guess there are really two issues in this issue:
1) Exporting bibliographies in a machine-readable format so that apps may use the data freely. Mobile apps, mashups, whatever. Here, JSON is best.
2) Exporting bibliographies for human consumption. Here, HTML with enough class/id tags to allow flexible styling is a very good first start. I would assume regular users would appreciate this a lot more than #1, since integrating it in your own home page is just a matter of including the HTML snippet.
If you give me #1, I could have a look at prototyping such a script.
implemented extension of api that produces JSON output for a bibliography; the bibliography page contains a link to the JSON output; will be available online in release 59.
