REX: REST-Enabled XHTML

October 19, 2005 § Leave a comment

I’ve just posted a presentation describing a new
web-services architecture named
“REX”:

REST-Enabled XHTML

This is the technology
formerly known as STRUM and DETH. Click [Read More] for the backstory and
alternate names.

After struggling through a plethora of
names:
? STRUM: Script-Tunneling REST Using
Microformats
? DETH: Dictionaries Encoding/Transmitting
HTML
? XHTML-REST: vs. XML-RPC
? DUHPER: Dual-Use HTML Profile Encoding
REST
? XOXR: eXtensible Open XHTML
REST
? BRUM: Browseable REST Using
Microformats
? RAX: RESTful API with XHTML
? SHAR: Semantic HTML APIs for
REST
? BRUSH: Browseable REST Using Semantic
HTML
? SXOR: Semantic XHTML Over
REST

I threw it open to
microformats-discuss, where Stephen Downes came up with the brilliant
suggestion of “REX.” Yeah! While not as rich, it is punchy, which may be more
important.
