Atomic Data

[Atomic Data]

Atomic Data is a modular specification for sharing, modifying and modeling graph data. It uses links to connect pieces of data, and therefore makes it easier to connect datasets to each other - even when these datasets exist on separate machines. Atomic Data is especially suitable for knowledge graphs, distributed datasets, semantic data, p2p applications, decentralized apps and linked open data. It is designed to be highly extensible, easy to use, and to make the process of domain specific standardization as simple as possible. It is type-safe linked data (a strict subset of RDF), which is also fully compatible with regular JSON. In this project, we'll work on the MIT licensed atomic-server and atomic-data-browser, which are a graph database server and a modular web-gui that enable users to model, share and edit atomic data. We'll add functionality, improve stability and testing, improve documentation and create materials that help developers to get started.
