Which request should my program send to mathoverflow.net to get the bibtex, which is so well hidden behind the share button?
Rephrased: what I'm after is something analogous to a link like:
which serves the bibtex for arXiv articles.
The question is about the "cite" feature available on some (but not all) Stack Exchange sites, like Math Overflow, math.stackexchange, etc. This question is not about extending the feature to other sites.
The FindStat project encourages contributors to provide references for combinatorial statistics.
I am currently redesigning the way such references are processed. In future, a contributor should only type something like
[[MO168885]], without providing any further information. The program then will fetch author and title from the various websites. This was (relatively) easy for the arXiv, but for Math Overflow citations (which occur a lot, by nature of the site), I'm hitting a problem.
