As a basic approach you can get an export from a search result. Using
ROAR as an example:


i.e. replace _action_search with _action_export and output={PluginID}
with the format you want (depends on what plugins you have installed).

This isn't an official API but has been stable for many years ... new
versions of EPrints will formalise this using the OpenSearch API

All the best,
