I have created a new website which I am simply calling XBRL Site. See: http://www.xbrlsite.com/
On this site I am providing a bunch of XBRL taxonomies and instances which can be used for learning, testing, and demonstrations. This is a work in progress. Right now everything is organized on the home page. That will eventually change.
Several items of specific interest are the following:
- All the taxonomies and instances are being tested by a minimum of two validators of different vendors and I am striving to test these with at least four vendor tools. I am happy to use more if any vendors want to provide a validator or an automated validation process. My validators of choice are UBmatrix XPE, CoyoteReporting XRun, DecisionSoft TrueNorth, and Fujitsu's taxonomy and instance validator. I am using multiple validators to both make sure that the taxonomies and instances I create are of the highest quality and to ferret out any interoperability issues to get new XBRL conformance suite tests created to maximize software interoperability.
- There are a number of RSS feeds on the page. The RSS feeds can be used to grab taxonomies and instances and feed them to processes. That is how I am doing validation. For example, I simply send the URL of one RSS feed to a process that I created using Microsoft Access and about 1 minute later all 80 instance documents and taxonomies from this feed are validated! Sure beats the old days of doing these one by one.
- There are several "repositories" of instance documents. These are pretty basic now, but I am going to make these increasingly sophisticated. The purpose of the repositories are to both provide instances for demos and to test comparability issues from a business perspective.
I do take requests. If anyone has any ideas or needs something which I think is a good idea, please let me know what it is and I will see what I can do. If you have or know about any interesting demos, please let me know about them. If you may want to collaborate on a demo, I am up for that also.
