Galimatias born with the goal of parsing URLs that can be opened in a web browser. For my use cases, this included http, https and data. It soon became obvious that support for ftp, gopher, ws, wss and file would be sane and cheap to add since they are supported by most modern browsers and are specified in WHATWG's URL Standard.

Support for any other scheme is currently in place in a limited way. If there is double slash ("//") after the scheme (e.g. "git://"), the URL is parsed as a hierarchical URI. Otherwise, it is parsed an opaque URI. This is known to work with any URI except ed2k links (which is far from compliant with RFC 3986).

Before going on and overengineer anything, I would like to hear about your use cases with handling URIs other than http and https in Java. I will use this feedback to better define the scope of galimatias.

Thank you for your time!

Yes, please support git urls like:

  • As used by github and gitlab:
    git@github.com:smola/galimatias.git
  • As used by stash/ssh:
    ssh://git@github.com/smola/galimatias.git

That would make this library more useful, for me atleast :)
