The code I wrote should have enough hooks to enable this.  But I haven’t
looked at zotero at all.  If zotero support is important to you, you
could investigate the “lookup types” in the citation code I wrote, see
if they are adequate, and try to use them to implement zotero lookup.

"Types of citation lookup backends.

Alist from type to list of:

- Function called at the beginning of export, with the rest of
  the keyword line after #+BIBDB: type, and the info plist.
  Should cache whatever it needs in the info plist.

- Function to lookup a citation.  Called with the key and the
  info plist.  Will be memoized by
  `org-export-cite--lookup' (TODO).  Should return an alist of
  keys and values about the citation (author, year, title, etc.)

- A boolean; non-nil = this lookup type is remote.  All local
  lookups will be tried before any remote one is.
  TODO: not yet implemented"

Hey, Aaron,
Am I right that I need to check out your wip-cite-awe branch from ~8 months ago? Would it make sense to try to merge recent changes on master into that branch first?

Anyway, I figure I will try to modify zotxt-emacs so it provides these functions and generates conformant cite: links.  That seems the easiest solution, and maybe Erik will give me some help once I've made some initial progress.  Meanwhile I will try to learn enough about _javascript_ to get started on the citeproc-js ocmmand-line tool.  thx,
