Software and libraries for Atomic Data

Although Atomic Data is a specification, it also has reference implementations:

Open source (MIT licenced) software for Atomic Data:

Libraries (MIT licenced) to build apps with:

  • Embedded database
  • Authorization, authentication, versioning, collections, pagination
  • Browser-friendly HTML presentation, JSON serialization, RDF serialization.
  • View & edit atomic data, using dynamic forms
  • Collections with pagination and sorting
  • Client-side full-text search

This document contains a set of ideas that would help achieve that success. Open a PR and edit this file to add your project!

Atomic Companion

A mobile app for granting permissions to your data and signing things. See github issue.

  • Show a notification when you try to log in somewhere with your agent
  • Notifications for mentions and other social items
  • Check uptime of your server

Atomizer (data importer and conversion kit)

  • Import data from some data source (CSV / SQL / JSON / RDF), fill in the gaps (mapping / IRI creation / datatypes) an create new Atoms
  • Perhaps a CLI, library, GUI or a combination of all of these

Atomic Preview

  • A simple (JS) widget that can be embedded anywhere, which converts an Atomic Graph into an HTML view.
  • Would be useful for documentation, and as a default view for Atomic Data.
  • Use @tomic/react and @tomic/lib to get started

Atomic-Dart + Flutter

Library + front-end app for browsing / manipulating Atomic Data on mobile devices.
