I think the original whish should be set as fixed and closed. Reopen (or open another whish) if you think it's better to keep for Miguel's comment.

*CSL supports thousands of journals, not papers, of course, but this bugtracker won't let me edit my previous post.

For what it's worth, I think it's not a good idea to try and reproduce (some of) the functionality of a bibliography manager within TeXmacs. There are already many tools doing it very well. Also we'd be missing things like mass curation (thanks to said tools having online counterparts with user built /shared databases).

As to the bibliography style, there's already a standard (Citation Style Language) with thousands of papers supported and a big and active community behind it. Implementing a CSL->TeXmacs engine would be much more preferable IMHO.

A good compromise would be some abstract interface for bibliography management which plugins could implement. E.g. one for Mendeley, another for Zotero, etc.

PS: Tab completion of bibtex entries is already implemented.

Implementation of a native bibliography mode inside TeXmacs, with: a bibliography.ts style file, importation and exportation to BiBTeX, better sorting, tab completion, hyperlinking between references in bibliography and the bibliography file. In the future: tool for searching references on the web.
