sorry to disturb you. I am trying to migrate all the workflow of writing tex files and managing citations into emacs but I'm completely lost by the overwhelmed plethora of packages and I'm not sure what is their purpose or if more than one of those are doing the same thing or have the same functionality.
Could someone please describe their difference and functionalities. Are some of those dependencies of others in the list below. In other words what are the main ones that come with eamcs installation and what are those that built on top of those basic bundled packages?
BTW, if anyone knows of any descent package that can take a directory of pdfs and extract and create .bib file automatically please let me know.
So far there's an option in
org-ref for this but fails whenever there's no doi in the pdf.
It seems that tools such as mendeley or zotero are more robust in this aspect. 90% of the time they get it right.
Does anyone know how they work behind the scenes and maybe we can port that functionality a.k.a robustness into emacs.
