Another critical part is to get a few functional JSON-LD processors up
on the Web for people to play around with. Digital Bazaar has one in
C++, Gregg Kellogg has one in Ruby and Dave Longley is currently working
on one for JavaScript (that works in the browser and in Node.js):

Dave Longley and Dave Lehn have been putting together a set of tests here:

https://github.com/digitalbazaar/forge/tree/master/tests/jsonld

and Gregg has ported over the RDFa test infrastructure here:

https://github.com/json-ld/json-ld.org/tree/master/test-suite

We will need to do some work on the test suite, but hopefully it won't
be that difficult to create something that can provide a basis for
testing these implementations.

Hopefully it'll only be 1-2 more months until we have two interoperable
implementations and a test suite. :)
