This repository contains the npm package @citation-js/core and several other components. This repository contains the npm package citation-js that wraps the aforementioned components for backwards compatibility.

Install

On Node.js, install the package (citation-js) like this:

npm install citation-js

To install the CLI as a global command, do this:

npm install --global citation-js

Browser releases are available here. These define require and add citation-js as a module.

Cite

More info

To use the Cite constructor, require() the module like this:

const Cite = require('citation-js')

For example, to get the bibliographical data of the Wikidata item wd:Q21972834, and then format it in HTML, English and APA:

let example = new Cite('Q21972834')

let output = example.format('bibliography', {
  format: 'html',
  template: 'apa',
  lang: 'en-US'
})

console.log(output)

To test this code, go to RunKit.

Async

Use the async API (recommended for Wikidata, URL, and DOI input) like this:

let example = await Cite.async('Q21972834')

let output = example.format('bibliography', {
  format: 'html',
  template: 'apa',
  lang: 'en-US'
})

console.log(output)

Cite.async() also supports options as the second argument, and a callback function as last argument.
