According to the man page for latexmk there is a command line option -latexoption=<option> for passing options to pdflatex, but there seems to be no similar way to pass options to biber.

Is there a way to pass options such as --validate-datamodel or --isbn-normalise to biber while using latexmk?

  • In ~/.latexmkrc, add $biber='biber --validate-datamodel %O %S' (or whatever options you like). – Derek Sep 26 '16 at 23:09
