The project is a demo for the Hydra draft proposed by the W3C. It aims to build a smart client and server that is able to exchange information in an efficient manner over a RESTful API using a Hydra based vocabulary. A smart client is able to communicate with the server even without previously knowing the supported methods of the server. This is made possible using Hydra's API documentation method. Hydra is a push towards the idea of semantic web and it's potential as a mean of communication is demonstrated in this project. This project lays the foundation for a larger project that showcases Hydra's full potential.
