I made a page for those interested in Social Linked Data (SoLiD).  As it's
a wiki, please feel free to improve the content.

SoLiD

SoLiD is a proposed set of conventions for building decentralized social
applications on the Linked Data stack. SoLiD is modular and extensible. It
relies as much as possible on existing W3C standards. SoLiD applications
are somewhat like multiuser applications where instances talk to each other
through a shared filesystem, and the Web is that filesystem.

To signup click the link below.

   - Signup <https://linkeddata.github.io/signup/?tab=signup>

A WebID identity certificate will be installed in your browser, which will
allow you to access your data space and SoLiD apps.
Getting Started

[image: started] <https://www.w3.org/community/rww/wiki/File:Started.svg>

Please signup (above) to get started, if you are new to SoLiD.

After creating an account you may browse your file system. Normally you
will be provided with a link after the singup process.

You may

   - Upload and edit data files and directories
   - Upload html files
   - Upload photos
   - Upload javascript

An example public directory can be found here
<http://linkeddata.github.io/warp/#/list/https/public.databox.me/Public/>.

After using the file storage system, you may want to try out or install
some SoLiD apps (see below).
Apps

[image: apps] <https://www.w3.org/community/rww/wiki/File:Apps.png>

Apps are designed to be able to be run in a variety of places, often
including on your own desktop. Here are some examples apps:

   - Warp -- https://github.com/linkeddata/warp
   - Profile editor -- https://github.com/linkeddata/profile-editor
   - Cimba -- https://github.com/linkeddata/cimba
   - Meeting scheduler -- https://github.com/linkeddata/app-schedule
   - Contacts manager -- https://github.com/mzereba/contacts
   - Todo list -- https://github.com/mzereba/todo
   - Hello World Test App -- https://github.com/melvincarvalho/helloworld

Servers

[image: server] <https://www.w3.org/community/rww/wiki/File:Server.png>

You are encouraged to run your own SoLiD server and join the mesh. Servers
currently under development:

   - https://github.com/linkeddata/gold
   - https://github.com/linkeddata/ldnode

Spec

   - SoLiD Specifiction <https://github.com/linkeddata/SoLiD>


   - Servers are application-agnostic, so that new applications can be
   developed without needing to modify servers. For example, even though LDP
   1.0 contains nothing specific to "social", many of the SocialWG User
   Stories can be implemented using only application logic, with no need to
   change code on the server. The design ideal is to keep a small standard
   data management core and extend it as necessary to support increasingly
   powerful classes of applications.


   - The basic protocol is REST, as refined by LDP with minor extensions.
   New items are created in a container (which could be called a collection or
   directory) by sending them to the container URL with an HTTP POST or
   issuing an HTTP PUT within its URL space. Items are updated with HTTP PUT
   or HTTP PATCH. Items are removed with HTTP DELETE. Items are found using
   HTTP GET and following links. A GET on the container returns an enumeration
   of the items in the container.


   - The data model is RDF. This means the data can be transmitted in
   various syntaxes like Turtle, JSON-LD (JSON with a "context"), or RDFa
   (HTML attributes). RDF is REST-friendly, using URLs everywhere, and it
   provides decentralized extensibility, so that a set of applications can
   cooperate in sharing a new kind of data without needing approval from any
   central authority.
