Hi,

I wonder if oc-biblatex should support loading biblatex-derived libraries,
e.g. biblatex-chicago?

There’s a quite a few of these libraries:

   $ tlmgr search --global "biblatex-" | wc -l
     66

(This is somewhat overestimating the true number of “biblatex-*”
packages).

These libraries are typically nie because they are (i) easier to configure
than biblatex for a specific style and (ii) actually support some
\usepackage keywords that can’t be used by biblatex (e.g. ibidtracker for
biblatex-chicago).

Thus, it might be able to at least support

    #+cite_export: biblatex-$SUBSTYLE

E.g. #+cite_export: biblatex-chicago.  But oc-biblatex would likely also
have to be able to pickup biblatex-* packages in
org-latex-(default-)packages-alist...

So maybe it’s a can of worms?

I don't know enough about BibLaTeX to answer that question. What does it
entail to "support loading biblatex-derived libraries" in practical
terms? I assume \usepackage{biblatex-chicago} instead of
\usepackage{biblatex}, with a different set of options and commands,
too.

It may be possible to define a new variable, e.g.,
‘org-cite-biblatex-package‘, defaulting to ("bilatex" . nil). It would
contain entries like (SUBSTYLE . OPTIONS) and would be used to build the
proper \usepackage invocation.

I also plan to allow custom commands in "oc-biblatex.el", so it could
also handle commands introduced by the substyles.

How we would select substyle from the document is not clear, tho.

Another possibility it to write, e.g., "oc-biblatex-chicago.el" and
define a new ‘biblatex-chicago’ export processor, re-using most
functions from "oc-biblatex.el". It would probably only be necessary to
re-define ‘org-cite-biblatex-export-citation’ and
‘org-cite-biblatex-prepare-preamble’.

WDYT?

This is probably the path of least resistance for users who want to use biblatex-chicago out of the box, rather than as a basis for deriving a specific style.

Here is the relevant section 4.51 of the biblatex-chicago manual:

  With the addition of the author-date styles to the package, I 
  have provided three keys for choosing which style to load, 
  notes, authordate, and authordate-trad , one of which you put in 
  the options to the \usepackage command. The default way of 
  loading the notes + bibliography style has therefore slightly 
  changed. With early versions of biblatex-chicago-notes , the 
  standard way of loading the package was via a call to biblatex , 
  e.g.:

  \usepackage[style=chicago-notes,strict,backend=bibtex8,%
  babel=other,bibencoding=inputenc]{biblatex}

  Now, the default way to load the style, and one that will in the 
  vast majority of standard cases produce the same results as the 
  old invocation, will look like this:

  \usepackage[notes,strict,backend=biber,autolang=other,%
  bibencoding=inputenc]{biblatex-chicago}

  (In point of fact, the previous biblatex-chicago loading method 
  without the notes option will still work, but only because I’ve 
  made the notes & bibliography style the default if no style is 
  explicitly requested.) If you read through biblatex-chicago.sty, 
  you’ll see that it sets a number of biblatex options aimed at 
  following the Chicago specification, as well as setting a few 
  formatting variables intended as reasonable defaults (see 
  section 4.4.1, above). Some parts of this specification, 
  however, are plainly more “suggested” than “required,” and 
  indeed many publishers, while adopting the main skeleton of the 
  Chicago style in citations, nonetheless maintain their own house 
  styles to which the defaults I have provided do not conform.

  If you only need to change one or two parameters, this can 
  easily be done by putting different options in the call to 
  biblatex-chicago or redefining other formatting variables in the 
  preamble, thereby overriding the package defaults. If, however, 
  you wish more substantially to alter the output of the package, 
  perhaps to use it as a base for constructing another style 
  altogether, then you may want to revert to the old style of 
  invocation above. You’ll lose all the definitions in 
  biblatex-chicago.sty, including those to which I’ve already 
  alluded and also the code that sets the note number in-line 
  rather than superscript in endnotes or footnotes. Also in this 
  file is the code that calls cmsamerican.lbx , which means that 
  you’ll lose all the Chicago-specific bibstrings I’ve defined 
  unless you provide, in your preamble, a \DeclareLanguageMapping 
  command adapted for your setup, on which see section 7 below and 
  also §§ 4.9.1 and 4.11.8 in biblatex.pdf .

  What you will not lose is the ability to call the package 
  options annotation, strict, short, and noibid (section 4.4.3, 
  above), in case these continue to be useful to you when 
  constructing your own modifications. There’s very little code, 
  therefore, actually in biblatex-chicago.sty , but I hope that 
  even this minimal separation will make the package somewhat more 
  adaptable. Any suggestions on this score are, of course, 
  welcome.

All the best,
Tom

I can write a biblatex-chicago citation processor. However, it would
help me tremendously if someone could map styles/variants to LaTeX
commands when using this package.

See for example `org-cite-biblatex-styles' in main branch.

Any volunteer?

Hmm, I can't find 'org-cite-biblatex-styles' in main.

Do you mean the map represented by the nested pcase in 
org-cite-biblatex-export-citation function, or something else?

Tom

You need to update main. `org-cite-biblatex-styles' is a recent addition
to oc-biblatex.el. The pcase you're talking about does not exist
anymore.

Thank you for having a look.

Got it.  Thanks.

IIUC, the map in 'org-cite-biblatex-styles' is correct for 
biblatex-chicago.

biblatex-chicago introduces new LaTeX commands. Does that mean those can
be ignored?

If the goal is to support the styles and variants in 
org-cite-biblatex-styles, then I believe the answer is 'yes'.

A potentially useful biblatex-chicago extension to \textcite is 
\gentextcite, which depending on the package option genallnames 
will give all authors' names or the last author's name in genitive 
form.  This defaults to the English 's, but there is an optional 
argument so it can be tailored to other languages.  It might be 
worthwhile to map this to a new 'gen' variant of the 'text' style.

Rasmus has been active in biblatex-chicago development, so I'd be 
keen to hear his thoughts on the capabilities of 
oc-biblatex-chicago.

All the best,
Tom

While I haven’t looked through other styles, I would assume the user
commands (“\*cite*”) remain the same.  Only The library differs.  But
sometimes it may introduce new options to the package.

Maybe that is a good way.  But e.g. a student once preferred an even more
obscure style, biblatex-aer which builds on biblatex-chicago to make a
style similar to a specific journal.  It could get old quickly...

OTOH, we could select some key derivatives to support.

Kind regards,
Rasmus

For the most part it should be drop in replacements.  I don’t think any
user commands are *removed* from a derived style. But options to the
package could be added an user commands could be added.

Maybe that is the best way to go about.  Then at least we could support
the main styles out there.  I guess Chicago covers most of the social
sciences?  I guess the humanities use APA?  I don’t know how different
biblatex-apa is though.

There are also obscure styles.  E.g. a student once used biblatex-aer
which is a derived style of biblatex-chicago that makes it look like a
famous journal.

If we want to support arbitrary styles somewhat I guess something like
#+cite_export: biblatex-$SUBSTYLE would be ok.  But it would not
necessarily be full support.

I guess you (and Tom) is right that it would be better to make a derived style.

Tom, did you already make a derived style?  From the later emails it
sounded like it, but I don’t see oc-biblatex-chicago.el in the main repo.

Otherwise, I can have try to have a go at it over the coming weeks.

Kind regards and terribly sorry again for missing the follow ups earlier,
Rasmus
