Nicola Talbot submitted an update to the bib2gls package. Version: 2.7 2020-07-11 License: gpl3+ Summary description: Command line application to convert .bib files to glossaries-extra.sty resource files Announcement text:
- save-original-entrytype option now allows the name of a field as the value (making it consistent with the save-original-id option). - save-original-id option now has a check to disallow special internal fields (instead of silently ignoring the setting). - replicate-fields option will now allow unknown fields (but not special internal fields) in the targets and will save them using \GlsXtrSetField. - new options: save-original-id-action save-original-entrytype-action hex-unicode-fields - Bug fix: Added check for null in getSortFallbackContents (to avoid NullPointerException)

bib2gls – Command line application to convert .bib files to glossaries-extra.sty resource files

This Java command line application may be used to extract glossary information stored in a .bib file and convert it into glossary entry definition commands.

This application should be used with glossaries-extra.sty’s ‘record’ package option. It performs two functions in one:

  • selects entries according to records found in the .aux file (similar to bibtex),
  • hierarchically sorts entries and collates location lists (similar to makeindex or xindy).

The glossary entries can then be managed in a system such as JabRef, and only the entries that are actually required will be defined, reducing the resources required by .

The supplementary application convertgls2bib can be used to convert existing .tex files containing definitions (\newglossaryentry etc.) to the .bib format required by bib2gls.
