Citation via zotero

I found out this nifty way of grabbing citations in Markdown from my Zotero references, similar to how I would get them while working in Microsoft Word.

I don't have Ulysses but tried it out in Bear and Ginko (both Markdown) and they both work. So was surprised when it doesn't work in Joplin. Do you guys happen to know why this doesn't work in Joplin? I thought it would work the same way (sorry don't know coding too well). Is there something I can do to make this work? I am hoping to get this to work as the main reason I changed to Joplin from Evernote was the Markdown, and it would really be lovely if I can cite there as well! :blush:

(Only the first part of that blog post is relevant, not the exportation part.)

to clarify: The method involves typing command inside square brackets, here I use Command+` , and the citation bar from Zotero pops up. The citation then represents as a cite key in the Markdown format.

I think the bibtex plugin being developed now should help.


If I'm note mistaken, one of the problem was the license.

Another important aspect would be to be able to link joplin notes within zotero. I don't know if it is possible and if it is worth a new forum post.
