Surf your bibliographies

I gave myself a project this weekend that I’ve wanted to exist for a while: a simple way to convert BibTeX files into HTML pages that give a quick view of what’s in and what’s not in your bibliography resource. BibViz is up on GitHub now.

It deals with ordinary BibTeX files with a few (totally optional) extensions: an abstract field for papers’ abstracts, a cites field for what an entry cites (so long as you have them in your BibTeX files too, of course), a separate keywords field for organizing citations on theme pages, and a file field for associating an entry with local files (like the paper itself).

It doesn’t display everything yet, but is pretty close, and is worth trying if you’re looking for this sort of thing.
