Nicola Talbot submitted an update to the bib2gls package. Version: 3.3 2023-04-24 License: gpl3+ Summary description: Command line application to convert .bib files to glossaries-extra.sty resource files Announcement text:
bib2gls update: - New resource options: assign-fields assign-override assign-missing-field-action flatten-lonely-condition flatten-lonely-missing-field-action copy-to-glossary copy-to-glossary-missing-field-action abbreviation-text-fallback locale - default value of sort option is now sort=resource rather than sort=doc. If the locale option isn't set then sort=resource is equivalent to sort=doc. - Added support for bib2gls-extra-<lang>.xml files. - Bug fix: Removed already defined in other glstex file warning if action != define - Bug fix: if parent entry is a dependent of another entry not marked for removal don't flatten lonely child convertgls2bib update: - Fixed infinite loop: at com.dickimawbooks.gls2bib.Gls2Bib.newcommand(Gls2Bib.java:419) at com.dickimawbooks.texparserlib.latex.LaTeXParserListener.newcommand(LaTeXParserListener.java:978)

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.
