DESCRIPTION:

Discodactyl is an experimental toolkit for XRD service discovery documents and related protocols. It includes implementations of XRD URITemplate Link-Patterns, basic site-meta support, HTTP Link header parsing, acct: URIs and a webfinger poking stick.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • Webfinger client.

  • XRD parsing, querying and modification.

  • LRDD discovery.

  • HTTP Link header parsing.

  • acct: URI parsing.

  • Minimal URI Template parsing and application.

  • JRD parsing, querying.

  • Probably filled with bugs. Don't forget your bug powder.

  • Yahoo 'webfinger' doesn't work. Sadly, they need to update their format to the most recent one.
