I actually do have a
cff-version: tag in my
I don’t know if there are certain versions that are or are not compatible with GitHub.
There is an online tool (
cffinit), and I tried to use it, but it really does not help, because it does not walk the user through different reference formats. You can’t, for example, choose to add a
conference-paper reference and get prompted to fill out a form with all the right fields. Or if there is a way to do that, it was not apparent to me.
If you know the schema, then you can use the tool; otherwise it is not sufficiently helpful. I began authoring my file with
cffinit, but then gave up, saved the file, and finished it in a text editor.
I validated my
CITATION.cff file against the schema here and the
jsonschema program indicated that my file was correct.
So I am still at a loss even to know what has gone wrong, much less fix it. Does anyone have an example of a working
CITATION.cff file with paper in it?
