We would like to implement the Network Service Discovery spec <http://www.w3.org/TR/discovery-api/> in WebKIt. There's an existing bug <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101162> (with a basic patch to show the API) in the bug tracker.
This is useful to allow media applications to discover network media sources, players or DLNA remote UI's (and presumably plenty of other things). I was planning to start by implementing SSDP <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_Service_Discovery_Protocol>, using GSSDP <https://wiki.gnome.org/GUPnP>, targetting QtWebKit (and probably WebKitGTK and WebKit-EFL as a side-effect). The API itself is pretty simple, but I'll probably need some help fitting it into WebKit. Does anyone have any opinions about this?
