first Naiad module page created
Naiad is Spoon’s module system. For every Naiad module, there can be a webpage describing it and providing something for Google to crawl. This is the basis of a discovery system for Naiad modules. It includes…
- a well-known master Naiad module pages ID (so that one can search the web for all Naiad module pages)
- the module’s name
- the module’s author’s ID (so that one can search the web for the pages of the modules by that author)
- the module’s ID
- a description of the module’s content
- the module’s current version
- the module’s latest timestamp
- the module’s tags
- the IDs of the module’s prerequisite modules (for which one may search the web)
- one or more installation links. When clicked, an installation link hits a webserver running in a local Spoon system. The link contains an encoded hostname and port for a remote Spoon system which actually serves the module.
I created the first Naiad module page, for the “fundamental constants” module. I also made a custom search engine for finding Naiad module pages.
