I'm tinkering with a pod I've created on solid.community via the web interface and am wondering how to delete files. or is this meant to be append only?
Justin Bingham
@justinwb
no you can delete through the web ui
Stefan Junker
@steveeJ
@justinwb thanks, I just found the hidden delete button :-D
it only appears when i hover over it
Justin Bingham
@justinwb
yep - there’s a bit of hidden functionality for some of those operations
similarly a way to upload a file into a container is to drag it onto the green plus
Stefan Junker
@steveeJ
is this specific to the pod server implementation?
Justin Bingham
@justinwb
partly - it is the default ui for node-solid-server, but you could also run it from any server implementation as the default ui (so it isn’t necessarily tied 1:1)
there’s a bunch of work happening now to make it a bit more user friendly
but you’re also free to run a different one altogether if you choose
Stefan Junker
@steveeJ
I'm trying to understand the architecture. so solid.community serves the UI which is hardcoded to use a specific pod server?
I have been thinking of writing a pod server in Rust. maybe it'll be useful, but the motivation would be to learn what a pod server is about in detail
I can't even estimate how ambitious this would be at this point
Justin Bingham
@justinwb
it’d be great to see a rust implementation - plenty of people here to support you in different ways if you’re interested in doing that
Stefan Junker
@steveeJ
I have almost no experience in frontend development, so if the UI could be an external dependency that'd be encouraging ;-)
Justin Bingham
@justinwb
solid.community is a pod provider (free pod hosting), that is running node-solid-server (https://github.com/solid/node-solid-server)
and yes you could just use the current data-browser/solid-ui on top of it
Stefan Junker
@steveeJ
would you mind pointing me to the frontend files in the repo?
Stefan Junker
@steveeJ
thanks!

You want use the files in mashlib/dist if you only want the files to serve
Stefan Junker
@steveeJ
@justinwb so this is where the UI is looked up and sent to the client: https://github.com/solid/node-solid-server/blob/0555e66f35ea0248a45bbe5249a125d4fb15b53e/lib/handlers/get.js#L90-L101 or is there some magic I'm missing? my JS is not fluent at all ;-)
Arne Hassel
@megoth_twitter
It's requiring the files from mashlib
If you want a dev setup for it, you can check out https://github.com/inrupt/mashlib-dev, it aims to ease the setup for development
I just made it public - we've used it internally at inrupt to ease development amongst ourselves - so might be a bit around the edges
But it should make it easier ^_^ Feature and pull requests welcome, of course
Stefan Junker
@steveeJ
@megoth_twitter, unlikely there will be PRs on the front-end from my side, but thanks ;-)
I was trying to figure out how the UI relates to the pod server implementation, which I understand now
Arne Hassel
@megoth_twitter
Sweet ^_^
Stefan Junker
@steveeJ
based on the 'Accept' header the mashlib UI is not sent at all
Aron Homberg
@kyr0

I have almost no experience in frontend development, so if the UI could be an external dependency that'd be encouraging ;-)

I wanted to implement a new UI / frontend for pod servers using Material Design and my SpringType framework (react, angular, vue competitor). Maybe we could team up

Arne Hassel
@megoth_twitter
The more data browsers applications the merrier, of course ^_^
Maybe we can at some point work on standards that make modules interoperable as well
Aron Homberg
@kyr0
Yes, I'd suggest framework-independent and reusable Web Components
Arne Hassel

Stefan Junker
@steveeJ
@kyr0 as mentioned above I won't be very helpful on the front-end side

No worries, enough good work to go around ;)

@csarven
Noted. Are there errors in the observations or analysis?
Vincent
@Vinnl_gitlab
Some omissions in the analysis, in that he doesn't always know what a request is for - except in the case of Brave, of course.
Still very interesting though
Sarven Capadisli
@csarven
Fair enough.
Yea, super interesting and imortant. I've briefly noted some of the crazy that happens under the hood while working on a browser extension. That's only at tip of it though. Deep network activity will reveal a lot more. If only I had more time to dive further into Wireshark etc
