knitcitations: Citations for knitr markdown files

knitcitations provides the ability to create dynamic citations in which the bibliographic information is pulled from the web rather than having to be entered into a local database such as bibtex ahead of time. Knitcitations is primarily aimed at authoring in the R markdown format, and can provide outputs for web-based authoring such as linked text and tooltips over inline citations. Cite using a DOI, URL, or bibtex file key. See the package URL for details.
