I’ve had an idea in my head for many years about a browser extension for liking and commenting on web pages. There are extensions that already exist but I think they could be improved using Solid as it would be open source and users can store their own likes and comments. Here is one example…
I also knocked up a design for something similar which you can see here:
The above demo allows people to like, dislike, flag and comment. It will also allow you to view the authors profile and add them as a friend. The crypto stuff can be implemented at a later date.
Would someone be interested in working on a project like this? Surely this would be a great use case for Solid?
I would do it myself but the documentation for manipulating pod data is sparse. For example, I looked at the docs for LDFlex but they are focused on nodejs and there is still no clear examples of how to write specific information to a pod. You can see here: https://github.com/solid/query-ldflex#in-the-browser
It would be really, really great if someone could improve the docs for people like myself who don’t have a lot of free time and programming experience, and don’t want to use nodejs.
