Hi All,

I received set of files which uses biblatex and I am new to biblatex package, the code is follows:

\usepackage[backend=biber,authordate,doi=false,url=false,isbn=false]{biblatex-chicago}
\addbibresource{test.bib}
\AtEveryBibitem{% Clean up the bibtex rather than editing it
\ifentrytype{online}
{}
{\clearfield{urlyear}\clearfield{urlmonth}\clearfield{urlday}}}


I used biber to generate the bibliography and bbl file also generated, but while compilation the following error happening:


! Package biblatex Error: No driver found.

See the biblatex package documentation for explanation.
Type H <return> for immediate help.
...

l.486 \end
{document}

then I pressed the s option, again one more error:

! Package biblatex Error: Too deeply nested parentheses or brackets.


Please help me what went wrong in my code, my package version is mentioned below:

Biber 2.7
biblatex-chicago.sty v3.4
biblatex.sty v3.7

Your bibliography file has an entry type which is not defined
by biblatex-chicago.bbx. For example the entrytype set is
not defines by biblatex-chicago

I'm not fully up to speed with biblatex yet.
Is there a reason why the syntax is apparently as given above, and not

\usepackage[backend=biber,authordate,doi=false,url=false,isbn=false,style=chicago]{biblatex}

(in other words, why a separate package instead of having biblatex
\include a file, using the style name to make the filename?)

It's not a problem, I'm just curious as to why this design decision was
taken. It makes teaching, documenting, using, and tracking development
unnecessarily more complex, and having a potential plethora of
biblatex-*.sty files is a potential pollution of the package .sty namespace.

It's the way the biblatex-chicago package has been written. You
would have to ask the author why he did it this way.

Yes, one of a entry type was not defined, yesterday late night only fixed this error, thanks to all. Also, please confirm that whether autocite can be handle as like as natbib options like citep, citet, citealp, etc. Example shown below:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{filecontents}
%
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@online{NationalSecurityAgency_2012,
title = {{{SKYNET}}: {{Courier Detection}} via {{Machine Learning}}},
url = {https://theintercept.com/document/2015/05/08/skynet-courier/},
shorttitle = {{{SKYNET}}},
timestamp = {2015-10-29T10:36:06Z},
journaltitle = {The Intercept},
author = {National Security Agency},
urldate = {2015-10-29},
date = {2012}
}
@book{smith2,
author = {Smith, John},
title = {Second Book},
date = {2013-11-02}
}
\end{filecontents}
%
\usepackage[backend=biber,authordate,doi=false,url=false,isbn=false]{biblatex-chicago}
\addbibresource{\jobname.bib}
\AtEveryBibitem{% Clean up the bibtex rather than editing it
\ifentrytype{online}
{}
{\clearfield{urlyear}\clearfield{urlmonth}\clearfield{urlday}}}%
\begin{document}
Foo \autocite{smith2}.

(see the U.S. government's \texttt{SkyNet} for one
example of a machine learning surveillance system
\autocite{NationalSecurityAgency_2012})
\printbibliography
\end{document}

In this, I donot require the ( and ) for the tag \autocite{NationalSecurityAgency_2012}, is it possible to fix?

\usepackage[authordate,doi=false,url=false,isbn=false,
autocite=plain]{biblatex-chicago}

By the way: backend=biber is the default and not needed.

It works well, but it removed the brackets all places, but I need to remove the brackets in some places only...

then use \cite and not autocite!
