create an online service allowing to compute SWHIDs of submitted content
Open, NormalPublic


a kind of online equivalent of swh identify.

Such a service should allow a user to:

  • upload a file,
  • upload a directory (probably as a zip-like),
  • upload a (supported) package file (python source package, cran, etc.)
  • (can we/how to handle a non-git revision?)

and get a clear answer showing:

  • the SWHID of the submitted content (with possibility to navigate, when it's a directory )
  • whether it is known by SWH or not

Note that we currently have a simple version of this service on the main web page, but only for files. The proposed service should be able to replace this, and possible available as a public API, or maybe a pure js implementation so the computation is made client side.
