[EP-tech] ePrint2WCMS

Hi out there,

i just want to share some thoughts about using EPrints-Content for a publisherlist in a WCMS. In this case a author adds an EPrint and want's to find his new item also added (just in time) in a publisherlist on his personal web-site. So, our WCMS has to ask EPrint for all publications by this author (or department, whatever) and perhaps wants to offer the WCMS-user some added special features like sorting, cutting results into peaces of 10,20,100  ... things like this. From ePrint-Server we just need raw (XML)-Data.

Our installation uses different ways to create such lists, mostly using saved searches, hacking some output through iframes, static data-snippets;...all grown through the years.

So i am searching for a transparent, easy way to teach WCMS taking content as quick as possible from EPrint-Server by RSS, XML/XSLT, JSON, ...anyway. Our first thoughts went again into the direction of saved searches. Found some stuff around  https://eprintsservices.wordpress.com/2014/03/04/using-saved-searches-to-manage-data-feeds-case-study/ - many things happend between ePrint V3.2 and V3.3. I also tried out shelves-Plugin as a author-driven list-editor: Nice, but not automaticaly adding new items; authors always have to do one more workflow-step to add items to thier shelf.

Perhaps i am blind?! Does anybody know a third way, API, trick or know how to deal this an easy way?
Any help is welcome :-)
