You can check out CiteMacro from here using Subversion, or browse the source with Trac.


To cite a resource use the form:

Cite(label, [description, [keywords]])

For example,

In the Mythical Man-Month [[Cite(brooks95,author=Fred Brooks,title=The Mythical Man-Month: Essays on Software Engineering,
year=1995,publisher=Addison-Wesley, url=]]
there is an much referenced article, No Silver Bullet.

You can cite the same reference more then once:

Some stuff [[Cite(cite,Citation plugin,url=]] and then again [[Cite(cite)]] using only
the label.

Finally, at the bottom of the page generate the references:


With back links, and a smaller heading.


The list of keywords was obtained from IEEEexample.bib,

author, assignee, nationality, editor, title, intype, booktitle, edition, series, journal, volume, number, organization,
institution, publisher, school, language, address, url, howpublished, dayfiled, monthfiled, yearfiled, day, month, year,
chapter, volume, paper, type, revision, pages, note, key

Possible Improvements

  • Back links.
  • More intelligent reference creation, a patent reference should look different from an article in a journal. Order of keywords spring to mind.
