Yauaa: Yet Another UserAgent Analyzer
This is a java library that tries to parse and analyze the useragent string and extract as many relevant attributes as possible.
The full documentation can be found here https://yauaa.basjes.nl
HIGH Profile release notes:
Version 5.6 (SNAPSHOT - Not yet released)
In version 5.6 the number of detected DeviceBrands is greatly increased. The downside is a major performance impact and increased memory footprint. I'm currently looking into an alternative implementation for solving the Brand problem.
With Google Chrome 70 the useragent string pattern has been changed on Android ( https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/4558585463832576 ) . As a consequence the detection of the DeviceBrand failed and you always get "Unknown". This has been fixed in Yauaa 5.5.
Version 5.1 is bad.
If you are using version 5.1 you should upgrade IMMEDIATELY because 5.1 crashes over specific useragent patterns caused by a simple packaging mistake.
A bit more background about this useragent parser can be found in this blog which I wrote about it: https://techlab.bol.com/making-sense-user-agent-string/
As an example the useragent of my phone:
Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 7.0; Nexus 6 Build/NBD90Z) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/53.0.2785.124 Mobile Safari/537.36
is converted into this set of fields:
|Device Name||Google Nexus 6|
|Operating System Class||Mobile|
|Operating System Name||Android|
|Operating System Version||7.0|
|Operating System Name Version||Android 7.0|
|Operating System Version Build||NBD90Z|

- This runs under a "Free quota" on Google AppEngine. If this quota is exceeded then it will simply become unavailable for that day.
- After a while of inactivity the instance is terminated so the first page may take 15-30 seconds to load.
- If you really like this then run it on your local systems. It's much faster that way.
Stefano Balzarotti is putting a lot of effort into porting Yauaa to run in .NET standard.
