What cffinit can do for you

When you made some software and you want to include instructions on how to cite it, CITATION.cff files are the answer. However, sometimes it's tricky to ensure you write valid CFF. This tool helps mitigate that problem by generating the CFF text using a web form with form validation and user feedback.

  • authors can be rearranged
  • keywords can be rearranged
  • includes some automated checking/form validation with feedback to the user
  • compliant with http://www.yamllint.com/
  • compliant with Citation FIle Format specification v1.0.3
  • does not support the full CFF spec yet
