I am trying to make a webpage which can post the possible requests and services from a spatial server, like geoserver can.
However I can only find owslib that can provide me the details. An example is:
[operation.name for operation in wfs11.operations]
that prints out
['GetCapabilities', 'DescribeFeatureType', 'GetFeature', 'GetGmlObject']
another example I can think of is from the xml of a geoserver-instance:
where the request=getcapabilities are telling what services is supported. This can be compared to this example:
That states the available services in another way.
From the two latest examples I conclude that it would be a very large task to simply scrape the information from the xml, the task that owslib can do. I am restrained from using owslib in a web application because of webhotel restrictions, so I'm looking for another way of acquiring spatial server metadata.
