The URL Standard
The URL Standard is being developed at two locations:
- On a continuing basis, the WHATWG URL Standard with source at github.com/whatwg. For more information, see What is the WHATWG?.
- By request, and on a provisional basis, the Web Platform URL Standard with source at github.com/webspecs. For more information, see Web Platform Specs.
- Specification. Source is contained in url.src and url.pegjs.
- IETF document(s). (Source for) IETF Internet Draft laying out problems and some solutions.
- Evaluate programs and results. Source for the tests is the web-platform-tests GitHub repository. Captured test results against a number of implementations are available. These results can be explored interactively online.
make at the top level will build the spec, build the reference
implementation, and run the tests against the reference implementation. See
the Makefile for a list
evaluate directory to a web server capable of running CGI
programs in ruby. The urltest
script will capture and automatically upload test results based on the browser
that visited the page. The urltest-results
script will display the aggregated results.
make in the
evaluate directory will capture test results for a
number of non-web browser URL/URI implementations. See the
Makefile for a
list of prerequisites.
make in the
docs directory will build the Internet
Draft(s) in HTML and plain text, using xml2rfc.
