diaspora:// URL is used if a user wants to link to another post. It doesn’t
contain a server hostname so it is independent of the senders server. And it
isn’t software specific, it is thought to be compatible with every software
that is compatible with the protocol, so the receiving software can display
it as software specific URL.
The format is similar to the route used for fetching, so if the receiving server doesn’t know the linked entity yet, it can just be fetched.
When the entity with that
guid is already available locally, the recipient
should validate that it’s from
author before linking to it.
||The diaspora* ID of the author of the linked entity.|
||The type of the linked entity in
||The GUID of the linked entity.|
