Hi Justin,

This is great. I would like to see whether I can integrate your crawler within identifiers.org for CataCatalog and DateSets. Keep me posted...

I added those that have DataCatalog JSON+LD embedded that I had in my notes, such as identifiers.org <http://identifiers.org/> and fairsharing.org <http://fairsharing.org/>. Down the road, users will be able to submit URLs for crawling directly on the website, but for now, please contact me, raise a Github issue [2] or submit a pull request if there's an URL I can add.
