Hi Holochain Community,
I’ve been watching Holochain from afar and am wondering about current progress. Specifically, I have started a project called WorldGraph which I intend to grow into a worldwide, distributed semantic knowledge base. I have seen the h-wiki project, but I have also noticed that there have not been any commits to the project in some time.
What is the current status of your h-wiki project? for WorldGraph, there are two major problems I need to solve: distributed storage and distributed indexing. Storage is needed for obvious reasons, and indexing is needed so content is searchable.
I wonder if you are still interested in this effort, if I may have a short conversation with you to see if there are opportunities to collaborate. Another storage technology I am considering is ceramic.network, which does mutable documents on top of IPFS.
So with EYSS we haven’t migrated the wiki yet from redux to rsm, this is why there hasn’t been any activity in the repos. it’s a bit unclear when this will happen.
As per the file storage, we already have this module that we are using in different apps:
If you give it a go, let me know if you find any issues with it
Just a note to say I’ve a thread I started a while back to collate information and interest around IEML - Information Economy Meta Language.
Not sure if you know of it but sounds related so thought you might be interested, feel free to post a link to your project to that thread if you see a link, the more the merrier!
Hey guillemcordoba, looks great, I’ll give it a try.
Question about roadmap… has the holochain team discussed the possibility of introducing a database abstraction on top of file storage? So for example, a simple document database with collections and enforcement of schemas (for example using JSON-schema).
I’m using is-threaddb from textile currently… it’s a local first database with a mongo type interface and syncs to textile. Would be very accessible to have something similar for holochain app development.
Hi stephen, sounds super cool… like a higher abstraction of language. I had a similar idea… that more abstract language could be “projected” into more concrete forms on demand, to display the info in a variety of ways and languages.
Well actually holochain is oriented primarily to build graph database like data structures. The file-storage module has file storage built on top of these abstractions.
Another interesting approach built on top of the raw Holochain abstractions is peer-share that @hedayat is building in holochain-in-action, which adds a lot of flexibility to the shape of the data.
If you want to dive deeper on the technical, I recommend going through the Gym developer interactions (if you want to save time and not do the developer exercises) to really grasp the primitives that Holochain offers.
