Add CollecTor's file-structure protocol
Transform into appropriate format and also add path descriptions for webstats.
Old description: It looks like the CollecTor mirror serves the
index.json file at a different URL (
/index/index.json) than the main CollecTor instance (
/index.json). In theory, we could agree on a common place for that file and all other files and consider that part of the "protocol". And I'm happy to consider changing paths on the main CollecTor instance if different paths make more sense.
Here are the current directories and files on the main CollecTor instance:
/ # start page with all the content for humans /index.html # same as / /css/ # web stuff /images/ # web stuff /header.html # used to style directory listings /footer.html # used to style directory listings /formats.html # not used anymore, could go away if we wanted /archive/ # archived descriptors /recent/ # recent descriptors /index.json # JSON file with all files in archive/ and recent/ /index.json.bz2 # same as /index.json, but compressed /index.json.gz # same as /index.json, but compressed /index.json.xz # same as /index.json, but compressed
I guess my original intention to put
index.json directly in the root directory was to place it next to
index.html and in the parent directory of
recent/ which are further described by
index.json. But I guess your motivation for putting it in
/index/ was to avoid cluttering the root directory any further, right?
What do you think, should we unify this and keep it unified? And if yes, who moves their
index.json files? ;) I don't think they're used by anything yet, so we're unlikely to break anything. Again, happy to move mine if this makes more sense. Maybe we can briefly think of other files/directories we might be adding in the near future?
