Thanks for the demo!

I have a few questions about ILP pathfinding.

  *   How connectors make available the information about their quotes for pathfinding? Is this info public for everybody? Isn't possible with that info to acquire info on private ledgers?
  *   I've seen the documentation of Five-Bells pathfinding. Is there any motivation behind the choice of IDDFS (that looks more dijkstra looking at the code) algorithm for graph search? Isn't an incremental one as D* way more efficient for this application?

We've released our reference implementation of the Interledger Protocol. Try out the demo at https://github.com/interledger/five-bells-demo


This is a basic implementation of the Universal mode of the protocol. The demo runs a number of independent ledgers and connectors and allows you to select any two ledgers and send an interledger payment between them. This is meant to illustrate how easy it could (and arguably should) be to send money between payment networks.

More documentation, draft specs, and other use case demos to come but we're looking forward to hearing your feedback on this in the meantime!

Thanks for sharing.  I've looked through the code and it looks pretty impressive, tho I've not yet tried to run it.

A question about the data model.

1. Is it documented anywhere?
2. Is there a difference between users and accounts?
3. What values are permitted as valid users/accounts -- are they all strings, or can it be a URI?
