Hi Saša,

Peter's code is clean and the package is crafted to allow for easy
changes.  You can try this one-line change -- diff in the body of the
email below.  It is just to change function 'citar-denote--create-note'.

If you make sure the following, Citar-Denote should work for your
markdown files (it did for me for my markdown-yaml):

1. Configure user option 'denote-file-type' to markdown ('markdown-yaml
   or 'markdown--toml)

2. Have a tag appear as part of the file name (Citar-Denote adds "bib"
   and it searches for "_bib" in file names)

One notes:

A) When you create a note, Citar-Denote adds "#+reference:  <cite-key>"
   around line 10 of your markdown file.  Keep it as it is.  This is
   Citar-Denote searches for the string with regexp.

Perhaps this something you could have a suggestion for change and
contribute to Peter's efforts (if he is happy to accept a PR)?
