I've made a quick, ugly, and buggy, bibliography entry generation thingy for Respec.js.  

It allows you to load up URLs (where CORS permits), and it will try to make a bibliography entry for you that you can then send to Robin as a pull request. Try it here:


(Should work in latest Firefox, Chrome. Does not work in Safari. No idea if it works in IE, but would be interested to hear if it does.)

You can try it with, for example (click fetch!):

It includes a "validate" option, to check if the entry is already in the bibliography DB. It also shows you the spec in an iframe, so you can verify details. The JSON is "content editable", so you can fix any mistakes the application makes. 

If you want to help improve it, file bugs, have feature requests, etc. Please file a bug at: 

Hope it helps save a little bit of time!
