For the Mac there is BibDesk, which is a full-featured reference management system that integrates nicely with the Mac OS, and with Mac editors. It allows you to:
- manage references, including documents attached to the references
- create custom bib fields (including those used by
- search the database and create smart groups of references based on search criteria
- import references from major online sources as well as copied text
- export references and bibliographies in a variety of formats
- autocompletion of
\cite references in text editors; currently TeXShop is the only program to use this
- System Services for inserting references in other text editors
- support for any text encoding implemented by Apple (e.g., UTF-8, Latin-1, Mac Roman)
In the BibDesk wiki (BibDesk Tips and Tricks) there is some information on customizing BibDesk for
biblatex, including a link to a TypeInfo file that can be used to create all of the
biblatex fields automatically. Download the file from here: TypeInfo for BibLaTeX, quit BibDesk, and save the file as
~/Library/Application Support/BibDesk/TypeInfo.plist, where
~ denotes your home folder. In 10.7 and later, you may need to make this folder visible in Finder.
BibDesk has full support for BibTeX crossrefs (searching, editing, display), but does not support any biber or biblatex additions in this regard. BibTeX macros are likewise fully supported.
