[EP-tech] Open Repositories - What have you been doing with EPrints?

I have done a none EPrints thing that maybe is worth a mention... it's 
inspired by the work Adam Field did around using EPrints for 
"microrepositories" which was using EPrints primarily as a database of 
records from a research dataset. It was really good for the user 
experience but very resource intensive to set up, and usually the 
content never changed once the project ended.

My idea was to make a pure (lower case P!!!) Javascript repository, 
using the same ideas as EPrints, but making everything happen in a 
single webpage. You can see the results here

My long term idea would be to make a tool that built these repositories. 
Back in the day it'd have made a wonderful JISC project.

The best bit? You can upload it into "real" EPrints as a document 
containing the HTML, JSON and Javascript to make it interactive...
