EPrints is written in the Perl language. Sometimes you may need to write your own Perl code using the EPrints Application Programming Interface (API).
Reasons you may need to write your own EPrints code:
- customising the way the eprints summary pages are rendered
- writing your own command-line script to control EPrints in some way
- writing a new CGI script (dynamic web page)
- writing a plugin
Before you start looking at the API you may want to look at EPrints Manual, which has pointers to how-tos, tutorials etc.
Core API provides a basic introduction to using the EPrints API, and StyleGuide gives guidance on how to code in a compatible style, and Modules discusses the framework for Plugins you write for the community
