I am loving the development of ideas and approaches we see across the forum, specifically on UIs and Dashboard, that help visualise the platform. See specifically Conceptual Design - Solid better User Experience.
But it raises the question in my mind of what is the core benefit of Solid and what would a consumer (non technical) expect to find in their UI.
I, maybe foolishly, think of Solid as a privacy tool, holding my data in a secure manner that allows me to control how and to whom it is shared. To that goal I think the primary function of a Solid Homepage is to show me what Pods I have created, to whom have I shared that content and what activity has taken place with my data.
What I would not expect is to see a list of applications that I would interact with, such as Calendars, Chats, Photos etc on the solid homepage. I assume there would exist dedicated apps, with large development teams, creating richer environments than a Solid server would ever offer and as such my data would be best viewed in those applications?
Are we creating a privacy tool or an app store?
Would love to hear thoughts on this and great challenges to why I am wrong and what I am missing!
I open the floor to @eduardoinnorway as you created such a great dashboard!
