A recursive algorithm for the equivariant method of moving frames, for both finite-dimensional Lie group actions and Lie pseudo-groups, is developed and illustrated by several examples of interest. The recursive method enables one avoid unwieldy symbolic expressions that complicate the treatment of large scale applications of the equivariant moving frame method.
