15 Citation handling

The ‘oc.el’ library provides tooling to handle citations in Org via “citation processors” that offer some or all of the following capabilities:


Fontification, tooltip preview, etc.


At-point actions on citations via org-open-at-point.


Add and edit citations via org-cite-insert.


Via different libraries for different target formats.

To use a “citation processor”, the user must load them; for example;

(require 'oc-bibtex)

They can then configure them with org-cite-activate-processor, org-cite-follow-processor, org-cite-insert-processor, and org-cite-export-processors respectively.

The included “basic” processor provides all four capabilities.
