I’ve been getting my feet wet with Solid, and as such have whipped up a first basic app: poddit.
It’s very basic, but let’s just call it MVP and pretend it’s the hip new thing At this point, you can log in with your pod, and then bookmark links, and view previously bookmarked links.
Currently, links are added as
interests to your profile. I’d like to turn them into activities so they’re more ephemeral, but I haven’t figured out how to do that yet.
Ideas for later include:
Dislikes, turning it into a reddit-like voting system.
- Add the ability to view the links of others in the poddit UI.
- Adding the ability to create a list that others could post their links to, to facilitate subreddit-like functionality around particular subjects. I’m not quite sure about the appropriate data model for this yet though.
As you can see, it’s not very imaginative, but it’s a good way to get some feeling for developing Solid apps Eager to hear what you think!
