we just released some early code for a responsive design interface to the JournalTocs and CrossRef APIs, running in our intranet on a huge touchscreen besides the "new journals" shelf. Whenever I peek around the corner, our scholars seem to enjoy it so far.
If anyone is interested in contributing better code, feel free to send me a message.
If the code base is too messy for you, we might still enjoy seeing forks and re-implementations of the idea.
A huge problem is still getting/marking reliable updates from the APIs. Right now, we try some basic checking with the JournalTocs Premium API.
