[EP-tech] Re: using a creator's inital in a citation

In another file (my_lovely_creator_rendered.pl?):
$c->{my_lovely_creator_renderer} = sub {
my( $session , $field , $value ) = @_;
my $frag = $session->make_doc_fragment;
#do some perl magic to return the value how you want it
return $frag;

At least for the fromform Parameter I managed to define a subroutine at the top of the very same file eprint_fields.pl with

my $compound_checkbox_cleaner = sub { ... };

$c->{fields}->{eprint} = [
    { name => 'some_custom_field',
      fromform => $compound_checkbox_cleaner,
      # or just fromform => sub {...}, if you need not to
      # reuse it for other fields

Thus it cannot happen that you accidentally overwrite an $c->{whatever} entry, as your subroutine is just a private variable within eprint_fields.pl. There is a chance that works for render_value, too. Didn't test it, so try yourself if you want.

We are currently reviewing how we add author names in to the creators
fields of eprints, e.g. do we use the same format as the official
source, do we use full names, or surname and initial.

I’d like to know if it is possible to configure a eprints citation /
view so that it only shows an initial for the forename, even if the
field itself contains a full version of the forename?

This would allow us to store the full name where we have it, while
showing a consistent citation style of author names on the public site.

Many thanks for any tips
