Re: [O] org-ref code

I implemented some of this partially. I made it so you can specify the default cite link in a user variable, with a default of cite. When you type C-c ], this format will automatically be used. If you want to choose another format, type C-u C-c ] which will prompt you for a type, and then use the reftex-citation command to complete it. I added most of the citation types I know of to this. Most of those will not work with completion. I did make the cite link completion function use the default link type, so that it will at least do what you want. I might add completion functions for all the link types, it is just a lot of cut and pasting. and I do not use that much. I just wanted to see if I could do it ;)

I also added addbibresource as a link type, and updated org-ref to be able to use that instead of bibliography.

Thanks for the ideas!

This would be good, with many a way of stating the default one would
like?  For instance, for grant proposals, I often use autocite in
biblatex for generating citations as footnotes whereas for research
papers I use cite most often.

My comment was not so much the definitions you used but that you were
overwriting those that I had already defined.  Your definitions were
arguably better than mine so maybe I was being a bit picky here... :)

Yes, this is true but there is so much that can be customised in org
that you will never have reproducibility at this level (e.g. handling of
latex snippets, code listings, even latex classes).  I would leave
something like this to a separate set of code that is not part of

I have only started using biblatex recently, and that was because I
wanted to use autocite.  The only change I had to make was \bibliography
to \addbibresource.  I still use the same bibtex files.  Of course,
others may be making more effective use of biblatex...
