Issues Management

For issues, use the bugtracker link above. Note that publist is pretty much only a wrapper of bib2tpl and uses a slightly modified version of bib2tpl v2.0. If you have an issue regarding the core functionality of publist you may consider reporting at bib2tpl's bugtracker as well.

Syntax and Usage

Put the following on a page:



  • $sourceB
    Can be file or page
  • $nameB
    Name of a BibTeX file in plugin subfolder bibtex or ID of a wiki page that contains (only) BibTeX code
  • $targetT
    Can be html or wiki
  • $sourceT
    Can be file or page
  • $nameT
    Name of a template file in plugin subfolder template or ID of a wiki page that contains (only) template code


  • Relative page IDs work
  • If you choose wiki target, DokuWiki's markup renderer is used on the conversion result. Otherwise, the code is inserted as is.

Additionally, publist can relate all options that bib2tpl understands. Just append the options you want to specify to the other stuff in any order you want; syntax for one options is as follows:


For possible names and values, please check the bib2tpl documentation. The only special thing is filter specification. Learn by example:

  • |only:author=doe
  • |only:author=doe,sue
  • |only:entrytype=book
  • |only:author=doe,sue;entrytype=book

Note that comma-separation implies an or while semicolon-separation implies and. That is, the last example only allows only books written by Doe or Sue. Note also that the individual values are used inside a case-insensitive regexp (/$value/i). You can use the power that gives you, but be careful.

Have a look at those more complete examples:

  • [publist|page::internal:bibtex|wiki:file:simple.tpl]
  • [publist|page:bibtex|html:file:easy.tpl|group:firstauthor|order:asc]
  • [publist|file:lib.bib|wiki:page:template|only:author=doe|group:year|lang:de]

Stuff bib2tpl cannot understand is silently ignored as long as you provide the necessary core stated above.
