Altering filename of downloadable BibTeX

Adam Rego Johnson 1 år siden opdateret af Christian Fritz 12 måneder siden 1

Hi, when downloading an entire page's BibTeX file the resulting file is named "download" with no file extension attached and thus no file type showing up (on Windows 10 at least for me). When manually adding ".bib" to the end of the file name, Windows recognizes it as a BibTeX file and makes it easier to open from the file explorer in various programs. Is it possible to add this file extension by default to make things more user-friendly?

Additionally, for those of us (like me) whose publication lists are generated from a .bib file with a particular name that has been uploaded to BibBase's servers, having at least an option for the downloaded file to be that filename rather than just "download.bib" would also have much more utility and be intuitive. The option to append a date to the filename (e.g. "filename_2023.05.15.bib") would also be particularly useful for my uses with a library that updates relatively frequently, but I recognize this is likely not as useful to most other users.


Thank you!

Another good idea!


We didn't add the date, but downloaded files are now either named after the input file, or, if none is given, e.g., when using Mendeley as a data source, it will be call "all.bib".

Thanks for the suggestion.
