Introduction

This video explains how to create a simple export plugin and wrap it as a bazaar package. Export plugins allow you to present the data in EPrints in any format. Bazaar Packages enable you to share this format with others so your work can be re-used.

What you will learn

  • What an export plugin does, and how to write a simple, text-based example
  • How to ensure your plugin is compatible with different installations of EPrints (single and multiple repository)
  • Testing the plugin
  • Creating associated files and compiling the plugin
  • Sharing the plugin with the EPrints community and keeping it up to date

What you should already know

  • How to log in to EPrints as an administrator
  • How to use command line tools:
    • changing directories
    • listing contents of folders
    • copying, moving and editing text files
    • restarting the web server
    • creating new directories
  • Familiarity with Perl (the example modifies an existing plugin, so you need to be able to read and modify code following existing structures)
