I write a paper in Markdown and convert it to PDF via Pandoc and Latex with the following commands to get Latex's (well, BibLatex's) default citation and bibliography style:
pandoc -s --bibliography=foo.bib --biblatex -o foo.tex foo.md pdflatex foo.tex bibtex foo.aux pdflatex foo.tex pdflatex foo.tex
Of course I could just let Pandoc produce a PDF file directly like this:
pandoc --bibliography=foo.bib --csl=foo.csl -o foo.pdf foo.md
However, despite an extensive search on zotero.org/styles I did not find a CSL style that
- closely matches Latex's default citation style "plain" (with inline citations like "blah blah ") and
- produces bibliography entries that are suited for a German document (with pages abbreviated as "S." instead of "pp.", publishers as "Hrsg." instead of "Eds.", etc.) without errors like missing dots after abbreviations and the like.
So here's my question:
Is there an easier way to use native Latex citation and bibliography stuff via Pandoc than the commands above? I don't care about typing more or less commands (Makefile ftw), I just wonder if it's necessary to create an intermediate Latex file at all.
Alternatively, can anybody point me to a decent CSL file for German (Computer Science) texts?
