Simplify ExternalData parsing in Kartographer
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In order to reuse the same code in both JS and Node, the code that parses ExternalData geojson should be as simple as possible, especially since we always get that data from the trusted PHP parser.

  • php should normalize service and href variants into an HREF
  • URL should always contain proper protocol and domain, e.g.
  • there should always be a service tag to simplify post-processing of the request

This way the JS code can always expect these two fields:

"ExternalData": {
    "service": "geoshape",
    "href": ""

Is service really needed when it's duplicated in href?

@MaxSem it's not duplicated, href should use the real protocol to avoid complex parsing
