BibLib 0.1 released!

We (Sebastian an me) have finally released the first production/stable version of the python library BibLib! It’s a (pure) python library that provides several useful classes, methods and functions to work with BibTeXW bibliographic data within your python scripts.

As an example, this small code snippet shows (one way) how you can utilize BibLib to fetch an bibliographic record by its DOIW and add it to an existing BibTeX file:

from biblib import db_from_file, entry_from_doi, db_to_file

db = db_from_file('bibtex.bib')
entry = entry_from_doi('10.1088/0959-5309/43/5/301')
db.add_entry(entry)
db_to_file(db, 'new.bib', encode=False)

I made you curious? Have a look at the project documentation, which comes with an tutorial and the full API!
