BibTeX Entry from URL Chrome Extension

📅 2014-Jan-11 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

Adding BibTeX entries and citations to internet URLs is quite a pain in LaTeX. Manually creating the BibTeX entry can get cumbersome. If you find yourself adding a lot of links from the web to your LaTeX document, then try the BibTeX Entry from URL extension for the Chrome browser.

After you install it, it adds a button beside the addressbar. On a webpage that you want to add to your LaTeX document, just click this button and a BibTeX for that link is added to your clipboard. A sample entry looks like this:

<code>@online{Anand3:Online,
    title = {AnandTech | Motorola Moto G Review},
    url = {http://www.anandtech.com/show/7586/motorola-moto-g-review},
    note = {(Visited on 01/11/2014)}
}
</code>

Paste this BibTeX entry into your .bib file and cite it in your .tex file just as you normally would and you are done! 😊

Tried with: BibTeX Entry from URL 1.2.1, Chrome 31.0.1650.63 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
