I want to use Bibulous to create custom bbl files. However, I don't use the programs for which Bibulous was designed to integrating with. Is it possible to run the program from the terminal? I would think this would be the simplest request but I can't find any information about how to do this. I would think it would be something like,

python bibulous.py mybib.bib 

but I haven't been able to guess the right command...

That command is almost correct. What you need to run is

python bibulous.py mybib.aux

That is, the bibliography engine takes the *.aux file as its input, and generates the *.bbl as output.

Note that your system has to be able to find bibulous.py in order for this to work. If you want to use an absolute path to the file, you can try

python /path_to_file/bibulous.py mybib.aux
