An Extensible Web Interface for Linked Data Platform Servers

The Linked Data Platform (LDP) is a simple, standardized REST API that allows for the hierarchical organization of Linked Data, similar to a classical file system. While the standard is rather simple, manual interaction with the file system is tiresome and error prone. To simplify the interaction with the LDP server, a suitable web-based user interface for browsing, editing and visualizing LDP data with suitable Web Components should be developed in this work.

In the Internet of Things, and especially the Internet of Production, massive amounts of semi-structured data, such as sensor readings, process control data, log data etc., are generated at an ever increasing pace. While this data is abundant, reusability and sharing of this data is massively hindered by the lack of standardized open interfaces. To tackle these challenges and in order to allow for the tracability of production processes throughout the supply chain, data should be versioned and retrievable via standardized REST web APIs.

A possible starting point and inspiration for this work could be the recent Trellis UI project.
