zotero to manage my bibliography and
biber to use it.
For now, I export a .bib file and use it with
Emacs+AUCTex. I can cite in a very easy way by using Ctrl[ (
AUCTex cite feature with Regex) and writing the name of the author I want to cited. I can choose, then, the article I want to cite. I automatized the .bib export at each change with autozotbib plugin.
But, it is not perfect : I have some problems with Biblatex fields (zotero seems to export using the Bibtex fields and not biblatex ones). And, I am not refused a way to interconnect more closely zotero and Biblatex (than the simple .bib export).
I read in biber project page :
Experimental support for RIS, Endnote XML and Zotero RDF/XML
Other datasource types : For datasources other than BTEX, (e.g. ris, endnotexml and zoterordfxml), the source entrytypes and fields are usually very differently modelled and named. For example, here is how to drop dc:subject fields from various entrytypes in Zotero XML RDF format data sources:
<maps datatype="zoterordfxml" map_overwrite="1"> <map> <per_type>journalArticle</per_type> <per_type>book</per_type> <per_type>bookSection</per_type> <map_step map_field_set="dc:subject" map_null="1"/> </map> </maps>
These informations are not sufficient (for me) to use the zoterordfxml (experimental) feature.
Does someone set successfully Biber to use a zotero database without exporting a .bib file ? (by the help of zoterordfxml feature or not)
