[Tex/LaTex] Does Emacs support editing bibliography files for biblatex


Emacs includes bibtex-mode for editing bibliography files used by BibTeX. Is there a way to make it support the bibliography files used by biblatex?

Best Answer

Since Emacs 24.1 bibtex-mode supports biblatex:

* BibTeX mode now supports biblatex. Use the variable `bibtex-dialect' to select different BibTeX dialects.

To use it you can for example set it as a file variable to bibliography files by adding the following to their first line:

-*- mode:bibtex; bibtex-dialect: biblatex -*-
