I am helping to update the list of tools and libraries for Solid. Please take a look at the staging area version and let me know about any changes or additions. Apologies in advance for any inadvertent omissions or errors.
under rdf tools and libraries:
RDFShape: RDF playground
Most of the libraries/apps I contributed to were just to try things out and are more of a PoC. So they are not well maintained. If you want to include them, here are the ones I worked at:
- solid-acl-parser (parse turtle <-> modify it <-> parse back to turtle)
- solid-acl-utils (wrapper for solid-acl-parser which includes fetching and updating acl files in the pod)
- solid-local-pod (serve any pod on localhost; defaults to file system but could use any custom fetch method)
- solid-local-pod-manager (adds UI to solid-local-pod)
- solid-filemanager (file explorer for Solid pods)
I try to keep solid-filemanager up to date, but the others are pretty much in an unmaintained mode. If an issue is opened I will probably fix it, but definitely not proactively.
Solid IDE url goes to solid-auth-client page
Edit: Shighl looks really cool. I didn’t know about that library.
I’d say usefulness is more important than whether maintained. Someone can always pick something useful up and start fixing it.
Maybe they could be labelled “Maintainers Welcome”?
Yeah definitely make sure to make it explicit, so that section sounds good. I’d only label them “maintainers welcome” if Otto is actually prepared to transfer maintainership
At some point in the future I think it might probably make more sense to have something maintained by the wider community similar to the many “awesome”-lists, where the website might just make a smaller selection of vetted tools, but at present we’re small-scale enough that this list can be comprehensive in my opinion.
Nobody should have to worry that their ownership will be hijacked
Maybe 4 categories?:
Proactively Maintained and Enhanced
Reactively (sorry to MZ, but we need that word) Maintained
