Collaborative Dependencies

The idea

Create a tool that allows to colleboratively define, visualize (with graphs) and query dependencies.

a.k.a. “The perfect mix between Neo4J, Wikipedia/Wikidata, and LucidChart

Needs

  • definition/editing
    • can be done manually
    • can be done using scripts/APIs to aggregate external sources
  • should be typed yet flexible

Solution proposal

Glue together:

  • Wikibase, the engine behind https://wikidata.org, to store and manually manage the dependencies
  • An existing or a custom solution to import/synchronize existing data
  • Well-defined base entities to ensure a good overall quality
  • A custom frontend to provide useful visualizations
  • Some process/guidance to have collaboration

Collaborative Little Alchemy

The idea

Remake of Little Alchemy with collaborativity in mind.

Two collaborative modes:

  1. Administrative collaboration: people can easily propose new alchemies to the community.
    • It can easily be done thanks to open-source, basically, only a README file or a CONTRIBUTING file in an open GitHub project, and voila.
  2. Playing collaboration: being able to play in teams to share the fun.

Challenges

not so much, just taking the time to setup the engine and have a decent UI.

Interactive (& Collaborative) Layered Map

The idea

Create a tool that allows to stack multiple map layers and use filters to discover your next home’s area.

Example

Take multiple maps of the same area:

Sources: Various results from Google Images (do not hesitate to contact me in case of copyright issue)

Then, imagine a tool that allows you to:

  • toggle each layer
  • use filters or slidebars to create heatmaps

Bonuses

  • make the tool collaborative
  • share specific filters
  • export an image with your filters
