Bibliographies

Today I posted changes to MiniLatex that allow users to create bibliographies in the customary way using \cite in the body of the document and \bibitem for entries in the bibliography.  Whenever the user presses the full-render button, the citations are resolved in the text as live links in the HTML rendered on-screen.  Since the syntax used is standard LaTeX, running an exported document through pdflatex also resolves the bibliography.

Here is a full example:

\begin{tableofcontents}

\bibitem[A64]{abraham64} Abraham, Hank. Lives of Famous Hackers. 
 Caveman Press 1964, pp 1001.

\bibitem[U79]{dave} Ungar, Dave.  Principles of Fermentation,
Better Bread Publishing, 1979, pp. 32.

\end{tableofcontents}

In the body of the article, one would refer to the Ungar article as

as noted in \cite{dave}, fermentation causes ...

When rendered, the bibliography would look like the below:

[A64] Abraham, Hank. Lives of Famous Hackers.
Caveman Press 1964, pp 1001.

[U79] Ungar, Dave. Principles of Fermentation,
Better Bread Publishing, 1979, pp. 32.

The citation would be an active link as in the text “as noted in [U79], fermentation …”

Please see the MiniLatex Demo App for an example of the bibliography in action.
