Proposal for "XML_XRD"

» Metadata » Status
» Description

PHP library to parse and generate Extensible Resource Descriptor (XRD) Version 1.0 files.

XRD files are used for .well-known/host-meta files as standardized in RFC 6415: Web Host Metadata, as well as in the LRDD (Link-based Resource Descriptor Discovery) files linked from it.

The LRDD XRD files can be used to discover information about users by just their e-mail address, e.g. the OpenID provider. This is the foundation of Webfinger, which lets people use their e-mail address to do OpenID sign in.

The XRD format supercedes the XRDS format defined in XRI 2.0, which is used in the Yadis communications protocol.

This package lays the foundation for the Net_WebFinger package.
