What is your recommended workflow for Tectonic and bibliography?

So I ran into these issues:

Which suggest that bibliography handling is not totally integrated into Tectonic. So I was wondering, whether anyone here has written a large document with Tectonic and bibliography, and can share their workflow?

I don’t even know how to use biber - it seems that all guides on the Internet assume one uses XeLaTeX and that biber is invoked internally by XeLaTeX?
