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
