I’ve tried the wrapper method found here: http://api.altmetric.com/embeds.html which I can get outputting onto the eprint_render page (the script and div tags) but seems to do absolutely nothing. There are no errors or warnings in the console relating to this.

Use the plug-in ;)

However, having done that, there’s nothing added to the eprint_render markup.
May happen if you're behind a proxy - you can set $ENV{http_proxy} 
(that's a linux thing).

The altmetrics widget only displays if the eprint has a DOI (typically 
in the "id_number" field).
