Rather-technical informations about TextMirror in the Q/A form.

What software TextMirror is using?

<3 FLOSS, basic names:
OS: GNU/Linux

Stats script: eStats

What icon set TextMirror is using?

We are using elementary Icons v2.2 by Daniel Foré with some small modifications.

How you call your mirrors-creating script and what is its User Agent String?

We call him Textee, UAString: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Textee/1.0; +http://textmirror.net/webmasters)

Why Textee ignores my robots.txt?

And why Firefox does? Because Firefox and Textee are not robots - both just blindly follow user's request.

How to redirect Textee?

By UAString, with the standard HTTP headers - example code in PHP:

<?php
# Redirect Textee to other-document.html
if(strstr($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'],'Textee')!==false)
{
    
header('HTTP/1.1 307 Temporary Redirect');
    
header('Location: /other-document.html');
}
?>

Does TextMirror have an API?

Yes, API and manual for it.
