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.
