Thanks @theWebalyst This is an exciting field. Glad to be here. Trying to navigate the knowledge base. Is Github the best source for documentation and official specifications?

@MychalSimka_twitter inrupt.com solidproject.org and solid.inrupt.com and github.com/solid are useful springboards

@MychalSimka_twitter Mitzi's links are good, I would add the https://forum.solidproject.org and don't be shy asking questions here or on the forum.

@MychalSimka_twitter on that thought of portability, I came across this article on running a webserver on iOS - https://developer.ibm.com/swift/2017/03/13/kitura-ios/. Opens up some fascinating possibilities of Solid pods that use devices that people are just carrying around anyway
Mychal Simka
@MychalSimka_twitter
Very cool find, Nina. Wonder if this is possible with a flutter or Qt installation on iOS. The article says it has to be Swift or Objective C. I don’t get the reasoning there.

To stay in the loop check out the mailing list This Week in Solid. In this week's edition, you can read more about the MIT Covid19 Hackathon happening this weekend and Solid World happening tomorrow at 1600 CEST in place of the W3C Solid CG meeting.

Are you going to hold those regularly?

@ericprud
how do i POST a new resource with librdf?
Vincent
@Vinnl_gitlab
Oh wait, you specifically want POST? Not sure then, sorry
Eric Prud'hommeaux
@ericprud
Yeah, I want to use POST to create new members in a container
But that's a great doc
Jeff Zucker
@jeff-zucker
In Javascript rdflib fetcher.webOperation( 'POST', parentURI,options)
@ericprud ^^
Eric Prud'hommeaux
@ericprud

i put together a little test just to prove you wrong:

new $rdf.Fetcher().webOperation("PUT", "https://ericp.solid.community/public/test-folder/foo.ttl", { contentType: "text/turtle", acceptString: "text/turtle", data: "<s> <p> <o> ."}).then(resp => console.log(resp.responseText))

prints "Created" and creates foo.ttl

and

new $rdf.Fetcher().webOperation("POST", "https://ericp.solid.community/public/test-folder/", { headers: {slug: "foo2.ttl"}, contentType: "text/turtle", acceptString: "text/turtle", data: "<s> <p> <o> ."}).then(resp => console.log(resp.responseText))

creates foo2.ttl, with the expected content

so in the end, i proved myself wrong, which is way better for me
Jeff Zucker
@jeff-zucker
But check the location header of the response to find the actual filename, which the server can change for POST

I've added a SPARQL query example to VisLab and posted details on the forum. I can't create a new reply, so it is added to the last 'Update' of this post: https://forum.solidproject.org/t/visualization-lab-early-prototype/2616/8?u=happybeing
It lets you query for Cnut the Great and his relatives and then displays the result as a network graph.

Regrets that I can't attend https://www.w3.org/community/solid/wiki/Meetings#20200402_1000CET .. but it shouldn't stop anyone from connecting... over whatever tool/protocol/service you'd like to use. If you do convene, please update the wiki.

I got the times mixed up with Central Time in the US. Are these meetings recorded and hosted somewhere to stream later?
Sarven Capadisli
@csarven
We need to move each meeting to its own webpage and use ISO datetime in the URI (defaulting to Zulu timezone)
Meetings are not recorded to the best of my knowledge.. but there are minutes.

hello everyone, I'm new to Solid. Just a small question: Does Solid have "request mechanism" build-in right now? For example, I don't have access to read someone's file, but I wish to access it and send a request.
Jeff Zucker
@jeff-zucker
@kurt read the person's preferences file to find the location of their inbox and leave them a message there, it should be world-writable, currently there's no automatic notification
As I said, most people's inbox is world writable in terms of adding a message to it
Kurt
@Kurt-Yu
ok, I'll check it out. Thanks

hi everyone, after reading Solid paper, I've got a question:
Screen Shot 2020-04-03 at 12.04.38 pm.png
according to this sentence, does this mean each webID can have multiple pods? Or it means that each person can register multiple webIDs, and each webID assocaite with one pod?
hope some one can help, thanks!
Arne Hassel
@megoth_twitter
As I understand it, a WebID can have multiple Pods (or storages), and a person can register multiple WebIDs
Matthias Evering
@ewingson
@Kurt-Yu as far as I got it: a server can be storage provider and/or webID-management, that can be seperated but in most cases is both. you can sign up for more than one POD. the provider would be e.g. solid.community and the webID would be e.g. https://timbl.solid.community/profile/card#me
Kurt
@Kurt-Yu
@ewingson @megoth_twitter Okay, i got it. They are indeed two separate things. I found the answer here. One further question: when I login in to Data Browser, I only need to provide my webID, I didn't specify which pod I want to load. How does the data browser know which pod to load if my webID associated with multiple pods?
Matthias Evering
@ewingson
@Kurt-Yu I may be wrong, but although technically other possible in most today usual cases the webID is combined with the POD
Kurt
@Kurt-Yu
okay, I guess we can say that: when login to data browser with webID, the Data Browser loads the specific pod that combined with webID (by default). If webID associated with multiple pods, data browser don't know how to load other pods. This action is undefined. I guess we can conclude in this way .....
Sarven Capadisli
@csarven
@Kurt-Yu If you mean association between WebID and POD through a relation like pim:storage, then an application could use any one or more of the available relations. In some cases an application should probably ask the user to select one. If however you mean the association through URI ownership (that is the host the WebID is sitting on), then there can only be one. I think we have some issues on this in the specification repo.
Some related discussion here: solid/specification#153
@megoth_twitter and Tim can give more specific information on Data Browser
Arne Hassel
@megoth_twitter
When you log in to the data browser on a specific Pod (e.g. megoth.solid.community), it will authenticate your WebID for that Pod
Currently the data browser only focuses on the given Pod you're visiting, but you can check your storages thought the user menu in the upper right corner
Tim Berners-Lee
@timbl
Yes, one pod can point to the others.
