Anders, I just want to say that I tested this out and it works great. It's quite shocking, actually, to have such an easy path from org to odt with live citations.  I'd love to see this stuff in MELPA or otherwise made more generally accessible, as i think it fills a substantial need.

Anders, just to be clear:  with your new exporters I can, as of today, insert the new [cite:@citekey] links using a better-bibtex-generated bibliography file, export to odt via pandoc, and then manage my citations with zotero in the resultant odt?

it so... cool.

We should also get pandoc to support updated org-cite syntax.

Hi all,
I appreciate the work done on the cite functionality!
I use zotero for managing my library and have previously used zotxt
and org-zotxt (along with some additions in my zotxt-extra library)
for being able to cite in org-mode and export correctly to various

Zotxt has used a custom link format for citations (similar to org-ref)
which links to zotero but optionally also contains a citekey (defined
via the zotero-better-bibtex extension to zotero). I actually wrote my
PhD thesis with this setup, but the connection to Zotero has always
felt a little wobbly and Zotero is also quite slow for my large

Now seems to be a great time to convert to a workflow with the new
cite format. To enable a conversion from org mode to word processors
with Zotero ”active” citations I created two libraries to manage this
via pandoc and the pandoc filter created for the zotero-better-bibtex
(see: https://retorque.re/zotero-better-bibtex/exporting/pandoc/)

This allows me a workflow like:
1. keep an updated  .bib-file of my library in zotero (with the help
of zotero-better-bibtex)
2. cite in org-mode (for me with completion via helm-bibtex and
3. Export to an odt-file with active zotero citations (with oc-pandoc
and ox-md-pandoc-zotero)

I attach them here in case anyone else finds some part of this workflow usable.

I couldn’t find any previous definitions for exporting to the pandoc
cite format so I quickly hacked up org-cite-pandoc. I suppose it could
be be widely useful and included in org. Feel free to use it as
suitable (I have FSF copyright assignment for emacs).
