Re: [O] org-ref for biblatex

I added the multicite commands. you have to use cites:foo,bar,baz, and it will export to the format you suggested. org-ref is not smart enough to automatically add the s to the link type if you add more than one reference, you have to be smart enough to do that.

can you try it out and let me know if it does what you need?

John,

to come back to org-ref, which basically runs fine for me now, thanks.

I am running biblatex (as opposed to bibtex) though, with meanwhile
biber as a backend.

The biblatex manual is very comprehensible and explains the different
citation commands from page 79 onwards.

http://ctan.mirrorcatalogs.com/macros/latex/contrib/biblatex/doc/biblatex.pdf

I just ran into this: Having added a few citations to an existing
one with C-u C-c d, I have something like

cite:foo,bar,baz

which gets exported to latex as

\cite{foo,bar,baz}

whereas biblatex expects

\cites{foo}{bar}{baz}

as I understand (note the plural s as well), and there are other config
tweekings I am doing for biblatex (that I intend to explain some other
time).

Maybe a switch (an org-ref variable) would be a good idea, that lets
one choose: use either biblatex or plain old bibtex?
