Bibfilex 1.2.4

Build and manage Biblatex files on GNU/Linux systems with this cross-platform application
Bibfilex is an open source, multi-platform and free software project that allows you to create and manage archives of bibliographical items, including articles and books. It is a bibliographic manager for Linux, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.

Archive and catalog items according to the Biblatex specification

The application has been designed in such a way that it can archive and catalog items according to the Biblatex specification. It allows users to attach files to any item in a catalog, export and import data in the Biblatex format, temporarily store specific keywords for later use, enable auto-completion of data, as well as to insert special keywords and characters.

Items can be filtered

With Bibfilex, you can filter the stored items on a single field, on three fields or less, by keywords or by the BibTex keys enclosed in a LaTeX document. In addition, it is possible to replace citation commands, associate various attachments, automatically create unique BibTex keys, and specify the columns displayed in the grid view of the data.

Supports bookmarks

Another interesting feature is the ability to compose citations for one or more bibliographical items based on a user-defined pattern. In addition, it supports bookmarks, allowing the user to easily navigate to a specific item.

Supports mainstream desktop environments

The application is available for download as a source archive, as well as binary packages for RPM- and DEB-based Linux operating systems, with graphical user interfaces written in the GTK+ and Qt GUI toolkits. It supports mainstream desktop environments, including GNOME, KDE, Xfce, Cinnamon, MATE, LXDE, LXQt, Enlightenment and Razor-Qt.

Officially supported Linux distributions

As mentioned, the software is distributed as binary packages for DEB- and RPM-based distributions of Linux, which means that it can be successfully used on Ubuntu, Debian GNU/Linux, Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, openSUSE, Linux Mint and Mageia. Bibfilex can  also be installed in Arch Linux and supports both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures.
