This documents research and notes around URLs for the URL standard.

Implementations

Tests

Variants of the following code (runs in Live DOM Viewer) are useful to test which code points are URL escaped in browsers:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<script>
var a = document.createElement("a")

i = 0
cp = 0x100

while ( i < cp ) {
  a.href = "http://x" + String.fromCharCode(i) + "@x/"
  if(a.href.length != "http://x)@x/".length) {
    w(a.href)
  }
  i++
}
</script>

Parsing

JavaScript libraries

For improving the API we might want to take inspiration from:

Schemes

Currently the parser does not separate out query, this could be problematic for about and maybe mailto.

  • data
  • javascript
  • mailto
  • about (uselessly defined in RFC 6694)
