Welcome to the Glasgow EPrints Bazaar Workshop

The aim of the workshop is to give advanced training on the EPrints API and introduce the EPrints Bazaar. We will also be doing individual surgeries throughout the two days to help people with specific problems they may have. Also we are looking to improve specific parts of our documentation so any suggestions for wiki pages you would like written would be gratefully received.


Day 1

10:00 - Introduction and welcome presentation.

10:45 - My_First_Bazaar_Package. A gentle start looking at how to make an EPrints plugin and how to turn it into a bazaar package.

  • We shall be customising this package throughout the day to achieve many different tasks with the API.
  • Once the days is over, this package will be a good stand alone reference for the API exercises.

11:30 - Using_the_new_API. An introduction to the API and what you can do with it including building your own searches, and manipulating datasets

13:00 - Lunch. This is a provisional time

Day 2
