Screen Plugins are used to handle the User Interface. Screen plugins provide the UI to the user-interaction parts of EPrints. A screen plugin can include:

  • A render (a screen plugin can actually have several pages (like a search) or none (like the eprint move plugin). Most have a single page of output.
  • Actions - things which modify the system in some way.
  • Rights testing - the entire plugin, and individual actions, can be restricted in various ways.
