   A nice little RDDL app I don't have time to write

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I have this <a href="http://map.net";>day job</a> and so I
don't have time to do this, but it could  be wrapped up in a week
by someone with access to the necessary resources.

It's a website that has a form with one argument, which is
the URL of some document.  It reads the document, pulls out
the namespace URIs, and for each one goes and sees if there's
a RDDL.  Then it produces a nice outlined analysis of the 
document, showing all the namespaces that apply to various
parts of it, and offering to perform various schema validations,
stylesheet-driven output generation tasks, or various other
useful things, based on the resources out of the RDDLs; the
xlink:title attributes on rddl:resources would be useful in 
generating this outline.  Also for each namespace, allow you to 
click to get the human-readable info on that namespace.  It would 
need to include a bunch of different schema validation engines 
and some rendering engines, but there are lots of those around.  
Seems to me you could cook this up, using freeware tools and 
either perl or python, in a couple of days. 

Seems like it could be useful.  -Tim
