not sure though

@ewingson
you know, I' m all alone in the world of solid and the web, no one I know is programming neither the 15 colleagues I live with and I think I have to get to it with a fresh mind another time.......

@csarven
@aucampia In that case, you'll want to use http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/iso639-1/en instead. The URL with ".html" is a representation.
Iwan Aucamp
@aucampia
any other options, or better options?
I guess that will be fine though

hi folks, i'm trying to register client application on http://solid.community and have the next issue:

[request]
curl -X POST https://solid.community/register -H "Content-Type: application/json" --data '{"client_name":"localhost_solid","redirect_uris":"http://localhost:5555/auth/solid/callback","scopes":"webid","website":"http://localhost:5555"}' -v
[response]
400 Bad Request
{"error":"invalid_request","error_description":"Client validation error: {\"valid\":false,\"errors\":[{\"keyword\":\"type\",\"message\":\"invalid type\"}]}"}

could someone please help me with that or at least point me to some documentation? thanks in advance

@dmitrizagidulin
@rustra_gitlab that looks like a JSON Schema validation error (not a very helpful one, unfortunately). But, what's happening is - the registration payload is being validating against this JSON Schema - https://github.com/solid/oidc-op/blob/v0.5.0/src/schemas/ClientSchema.js
(this has been removed in the latest version of the library, but I don't think it's propagated to node-solid-server)

Hey folks, I'm poking around node-solid-server. I'm trying to get the mocha tests to run on my MacBook. Quite a few were failing. I added the hosts defined in test/utils.js to /private/etc/hosts and that sorted most of 'em.
Now I'm getting this:
1) CORS Proxy
should return the website in /proxy?uri:
Error: expected 200 "OK", got 400 "Bad Request"
Am I missing something in the environment?
Jeff Zucker
@jeff-zucker
@vitorpy you should probably ask that over here : https://gitter.im/solid/node-solid-server
I mean, here is fine, but more likely to get a response over there
Vitor Py
@vitorpy
Oh, thanks, I'll ask over there as well

@rustra_gitlab
thanks, @dmitrizagidulin, it works now! redirect_uris expected array instead of string.

Hello everyone! I am planning to make my new project a Solid social networking app (similar to mastodon). but I've been reading about solid for two days now and I have some questions that I need to answer before investing my time and effort in Solid:
1) is there a way for the data to be encrypted on the pod?
2) what about streaming videos and audio, how this is handled?
3) what if for example a post has a thousand comments, is it practical to query a thousand pods
saad
@saadnpq
probably I am already sold out, but I just can't take those question out of my mind

aveltens > 3) what if for example a post has a thousand comments, is it practical to query a thousand pods

This is less spectacular than it sounds. You won't load thousand comments in advance, only as much as shown on screen and perhaps a buffer of some more to increase the percepted loading speed. Then you will have some kind of paging or infinite scrolling to load more comments while the user is browsing. Let's say you are showing 10 posts initially and add batches of ten while scrolling down. Load 20 initially, when scrolling down the next 10 are already loaded and show instantly. Same for the next batches. Loading comments from 20 Pods in parallel(1) is totally feasible.

(1) some apps make the mistake and load lists of resources sequentially. This is of course a total performance killer.

aveltens > 1) is there a way for the data to be encrypted on the pod?

Nothing build in unfortunately. But of course your app can encrypt any data and store the encrypted version on a pod. But for encryption, key management etc you need to rely on solutions outside of the Solid ecosystem for now.

Thanks for answering
Sarven Capadisli
@csarven
@saadnpq Those are great questions. In case they are not raised in the form of user stories (see issues): https://github.com/solid/user-stories , it'd be usefu if you can capture them in there. There will be a Use Cases and Requirements document published and it'll be captured there. It will influence the specifications as well.

Of course I will check it out. Thank you.
@csarven That's a great resource. I was searching for something like that. Thank you

@eduardodir
Is there some official 1-2 page slider on Solid? Or someone that has done some "elevator pitch" slides that can be reused to present Solid on any occasion? A typical type of presentation like that is usually very right on target What, Why, How, When, Who.
Alexander Praetorius
@serapath
is SOLID related to DIDs or does that serve entirely different use cases?
Fabian Cook
@fabiancook
dids can be contained within the data that solid stores

@aucampia
hi
not sure if this is best place to ask
why does http://www.ontobee.org/ontology/IAO not import other otntologies
Justin Bingham
@justinwb
@serapath solid relies on an identity associated with a unique URI that can be dereferenced to a linked data profile document. both webid and did can satisfy this. to date implementations have used webid because did is still in early stages, but from a technical standpoint both are valid, assuming you have a ready way to resolve the dids for a given did method
Sarven Capadisli
@csarven
Alexander Praetorius
@serapath
so solid is what?
...it uses either webid or did but itself it does what?
Alexander Praetorius
@serapath
i found https://www.w3.org/wiki/WebID
but i also found the w3c working on did.
how do they relate?
Mark Hughes (happybeing/theWebalyst)
@happybeing
@serapath the core is a RESTful storage protocol (LDP) built around RDF in order to facilitate interoperability between apps on data controlled by the user.
Alexander Praetorius
@serapath

@theWebalyst which one? solid? or webid or did? i assume solid.
And solid uses webid or did and why one over another? did solid switch from webid to did?

sorry for all those beginner questions - just trying to wrap my head around the topic :-)

Mark Hughes (happybeing/theWebalyst)
@happybeing
@serapath No need to apologise, all good questions. Yes, I meant Solid. I don't know the full history, or much about DID. WebID was developed alongside Solid, most likely with it in mind. Everything implementing Solid must support WebID as it is part of the Solid spec. DID came later, and while it may be possible to integrate it with Solid I've not seen any work demonstrating that.
Dmitri Zagidulin
@dmitrizagidulin
@theWebalyst @serapath right, so, basically DID is a successor/continuation of WebID. (some of the WebID implementors were involved in starting up the DID working group, etc).
DIDs are not currently supported on Node Solid Server. There is currently a proposal to integrate them with the Solid spec over at solid/identity-panel#1
