MakeCSL: A Proposal

An observation:

CSL is at the stage where the language is virtually stable, and has gone through enough refinement that it has achieved its objective of being a powerful, open and accessible language for encoding citation styling information. It has been implemented fully in Javascript, and there are other implementations in progress for PHP, Python, and Ruby. In addition, styles are being written and deployed in publicly accessible style repository that allows styles to be accessed directly over HTTP.

However, it remains difficult for the average user to create new styles. There remains a large gap between the number of styles there are and the number of styles there needs to be to be declared a success.

If interested, read more about how I propose to resolve this issue here. The short version is, think MakeBST meets Web 2.0.

Alas, I don’t have the time or skill to do this all myself, so it won’t happen without help. Let me know if you’re interested.
