comment website for easy creating biblatex code?
IME the output from Google Scholar is almost unusable (especially for books). It's very incomplee.

comment Creating virtual files for better biblatex
But the URL returned by ZotPlus is exactly that: A dynamically created file on your disk.

comment Creating virtual files for better biblatex
I don't really understand your question. Zotplus which you linked to does exactly what you want – it gives you access to your database and is always up to date. As for biblatex vs BibTeX– this depends on the journal. If it prescribes a specific BibTeX style, there's little you can do.

comment Index in Swedish sorting order ( …YZÅÄÖ…) with xindy and LaTeX
Great work. From first tests, it looks like the pacakge has no effect on when using the indexing option of biblatex (which probably uses its own indexing routines. Any plans for that?

comment Mac bibliography management with biblatex support/export
Longtime biblatex and BibDesk user here. IME BibDesk is despite its shortcomings regarding biblatex still your best shot. Unfortunately, the developers are not interested. The simple fact that most apps (like Zotero) don't allow arbitrary custom fields (like origdate, booksubitle etc. etc.) which are then exported to the .bib makes them useless for me. But I agree that a BibDesk version with better support for biblatex/biber would be nice. I'd be actually willing to pay money for such a BiberDesk app.

comment Bibliography style per language with biblatex/polyglossia?
Two solutions come to mind – which are both ugly: Just create new entry types (for example japbook and russbook) which can easily be done with biber. Or just have one style where there's a language check for each document type. You will end up with huge a .bbx file but it should be doable this way.

comment Citation Style Language (CSL)
Turning biber into a CSL processor would mean rewriting it from scratch. biker was designed for handling biblatex's styles, there's nothing in the program which helps you with CSL at the moment. Adding a CSL processor to it, doesn't really make a lot of sense anyway, you could just write a new program.

comment BibLaTeX citing style
Maybe I'm missing something but why don't you use one of biblatexs standard authoryear styles? Instead custom-numeric-comp simply use authoryear (or one of its varieties).

comment Incompatibility with TikZ and Mac OS X Preview
It's not really surprising that you see the same issue in TeXShop since it relies on OSX's PDF routines. TeXWorks on the other hand uses poppler AFAIK.

comment Is there a BibLaTeX equivalent for the BibTeX style “alphadin” for the DIN 1505 Standard
There's a a DIN 1505 style for biblatex on Github, though I have no idea how complete this implementation is. Not too much work seems to have been done on it.
