In my latest blog post, I explain the role that Linked Data shapes might play in Solid apps.
In addition, I am introducing the concepts of forms and footprints that we will need as a complement to shapes.
Warning: it’s quite a long read, but you can just pick the sections that are interesting to you. I recommend reading the individual shapes / forms / footprints parts, and if you’re really curious, also possible future use cases.
Your feedback is most welcome!
