I'm currently using this biblatex-code to cite a website:

  author  = {Google Developers},
  title   = {Distribution dashboard - Android Developers},
  year    = {2019},
  url     = {https://developer.android.com/about/dashboards},
  urldate = {23.12.2019}

Now developer.android.com has tons of other sub-pages, that are relevant to my project.

How do you usually cite several documents/pages of one website?

Can you use one entry for several sub-pages?

    I think we had a s similar question before, but I can't find it now. (Assuming you really use biblatex as the tags suggest) you could look into @sets or (dynamical) \defbibentrysets; there is also the related functionality that could be used here. But in general I would cite each site separately if there are not too many. – moewe Jan 5 at 16:32

    Off-topic: "Corporate authors" like Google Developers must be protected by an additional set of braces to stop Biber/BibTeX from treating them as people's names (with a family and given name part): author = {{Google Developers}}, (tex.stackexchange.com/q/10808/35864). With biblatex the urldate field must be given in ISO8601 (YYYY-MM-DD) format: urldate = {2019-12-23}, regardless of the desired output format. – moewe Jan 5 at 16:34
  • Let's assume there are many. I'm currently citing like 6 sub-pages from Google. This feels weird. @moewe: thanks a ton for these hints. – user1511417 Jan 5 at 16:35

    Example of the related feature: tex.stackexchange.com/q/462748/35864 and tex.stackexchange.com/q/459759/35864. Example of @set: tex.stackexchange.com/q/107360/35864 – moewe Jan 5 at 16:43

    Ha! Found the question I was thinking of, not that it helps a lot: tex.stackexchange.com/q/436861/35864 – moewe Jan 5 at 16:47
