What app would you love to see on Solid?


This would be INCREDIBLY useful. (In fact, I’m running into the lack of such a site (onto hub) in other projects as well, in the Decentralized Identifier and Verifiable Claims W3C communities, etc).


An app to track health data. Personally, I don’t track that many different aspects, but I keep regular track of my weight via Apple’s Health app and I think that such an app would fit nicely in the Solid ecosystem. You control your highly personal health data and choose to share it with certain apps (such as this health app), devices (such as smart scales), and other people (such as doctors).


I’m working on a mashup of W3C Linked Building Data, SSN, IoT-Lite and Project Haystack and this would be outstanding.


So …
No windows 10 option yet ?


Thanks for the link. This visualization is very cool, allthough I’m looking into something more simple. My idea of a target audience for whattheontology were app devs (with no or little linked-data knowledge) that are looking into how to structure their data. I imagine that a lot of devs are used to just call their db-columns whatever they like. In the solid world they have to find an ontology that matches their needs.

I’d like to create a search engine that simplifies this process. I’d like to support this process by some kind of visualisation, allhtough I haven’t quite figured out how this would look like. I’m focussing in a first step to add the possibility to add ontologies to the index by providing a URL.


@tuelsch as an outsider looking in I think Ontologies are a bit of a stumbling block for people who just want to build something; (actually I’ve just given up lol) but recently, I was after adding some linked data to website, and I had no idea what to use; luckily Google has a “selector” tool that allowed me to choose what I wanted, and I just fill in the details, which is what I did, then I had my linked data set, and I knew it was compatible with Google Search tools. But if you did a UI like this, https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/article where you just pick something that suits your need, maybe a 1st, 2nd level search if required. Anyway, I think it would make things a lot easier.


Media player.

Audio and Video player for playing content (music and movies) on my POD and also on friends and FOAF PODs, subject to their sharing permissions.
I could copy my whole movie & music collections up there and play it form anywhere in my house, office, hotel room, or whatever.


Purchase Log

A history of everything I buy. Initially it might just include Amazon, Ebay, Newegg, blinds.com - online stuff captured by Browser plug-ins or DPI. Later we might add the ability of link with my bank to track all credit card purchases.
This would give me the ability to see what model of something I bought, and when, exactly what I paid, find out if the warranty is up, re-order (or check current prices elsewhere), etc.


Or more generally - a browser-to-pod saving mechanism which would allow storage of all forms, bookmarks, passwords, etc. and would support the pod as a location in file upload and download dialogs.
