It's all spinning wheels and self-doubt until the first pot of coffee.

In search of: A server reference implementation of the Atom Publishing Protocol?

At some point soon, I'm going to want to start playing with the Atom Publishing Protocol for use with XoxoOutliner, among other things.

Can anyone point me toward a reference implementation of a server end-point against which I can bounce a client? I'm lazy, and don't feel like combing mailing lists / Google searches yet if someone in my reading audience has the scoop.

  • I don't think there's anything that could be considered a reference implementation at this stage, but a number of people have made servers available for interop testing. The ones I have URLs for are listed below.

    At this stage they should be password free, so please don't abuse them. If you have questions or are looking for more sites to test with try asking in #atom on freenode.
