I would like to discuss project roadmap to specify milestones and steps to move META Web little bit forward.
My current view
- Browser prototype
- Basic specifications
- API server / client libraries
- Propagation of concept
Browser prototype (implemented in HTML5)
This is important because without ability to test concept specifications it is difficult to create them properly. Because I want to create these specs based on real needs.
After base browser prototype will be ready then we can create basic specifications and components for most common use cases - eg. collections / records / text, email, password, number, ... properties.
Basic API server / client libraries
API libraries should be developed at the same time as browser + basic specs because browser needs to communicate with some backend. In this phase is also possible to test API for inter-service communication.
Propagation of concept
META Web concept may look complicated so it will be important to work on it's propagation towards public and other developers. We should find a way how to describe it and it's benefits much simpler. Maybe video presentation could help.
I'am currently working on browser prototype. Dynamic model and parser is almost complete and I've also designed META Web document format basics - such as namespaces and versioning. Which is usable for browser because specifications will be changing a lot.
I will publish it's source as soon as it will looks more usable and cleaner.
Because I'am working on it in my free time (which I haven't much) I am looking for other developers who can help me with basic specs and server / client API libraries at least. Contributions to browser implementation would be appreciated very much.
Also creation of some materials (media content) to help public understand this concept is welcome.
I know that there is not so much information about META Web concept available publicly yet so don't hesitate to contact me directly - email@example.com.
