ldnode is now called node-solid-server -- it implements LDP and a few other

https://github.com/solid/node-solid-server

It's actively maintained.  Feel free to drop in to our chat room if you
have installation issues.

https://gitter.im/solid/node-solid-server

It's also now possible to install via docker.

Gold isnt actively maintained but if someone with Go experience had time to
help out, that would be welcome!
