Link papers to Zotero

Zotero can be made to open and select a specific entry from a URL like zotero://select/items/0_9KICUICZ.
Thus it should be possible to have Zettlr have clickable links for references like @Luhman1981 which would then open the corresponding entry in Zotero.

I guess we would need to add the corresponding links to the CSL JSON library. This should not be difficult since Zotero allows custom translators and we could easily build upon
https://github.com/retorquere/zotero-better-bibtex/blob/master/translators/Better%20CSL%20JSON.ts

@hendrik I could take care of the Zotero-translator, but would need help for the Zettlr side. Is this something you would be interested in adding?

  • I think I may even have a better idea with no changes necessary to be made to the bbt-translator: https://github.com/retorquere/zotero-better-bibtex/issues/769

    This way we could just implement the zotero-links and open them through the citekeys. We just would need to rely upon Zotero handling edge cases (such as duplicate citekeys or nonexisting plugin).

  • Oh very cool! I wasn't aware of that, but that is even better, I agree. :+1:
