Org Ref Citations

org-ref citations can be exported to Hugo-compatible markdown/HTML by calling (org-ref-process-buffer 'html) in the org-export-before-parsing-hook hook.

Here’s an example of how to do that using use-package:

(use-package org-ref
  :ensure t
  (with-eval-after-load 'ox
    (defun my/org-ref-process-buffer--html (backend)
      "Preprocess `org-ref' citations to HTML format.

Do this only if the export backend is `html' or a derivative of
      ;; `ox-hugo' is derived indirectly from `ox-html'.
      ;; ox-hugo <- ox-blackfriday <- ox-md <- ox-html
      (when (org-export-derived-backend-p backend 'html)
        (org-ref-process-buffer 'html)))
    (add-to-list 'org-export-before-parsing-hook #'my/org-ref-process-buffer--html)))

Example #

Minimal example with org-ref citations:

#+title: Citation using ~org-ref~

#+hugo_base_dir: ../
