PDS Interop

“Data is a precious thing and will last longer than the systems themselves.” ~ Tim Berners-Lee

PDS Interop stands for Personal Data Stores Interoperability.

We are an open-source, grant and sponsorship driven collaboration, intent on bringing interoperability between personal data stores to the masses.

Our first main mission was to bring Solid to Nextcloud by creating an open source Nextcloud app that turns a Nextcloud server into a spec-compliant Solid server.

We are also working on providing test suites for PDS Interop, and documenting conventions used by apps and services that store data interoperably on your PDS.

A guest lecture about PDS Interop, which Michiel de Jong gave at CERN in September 2021, can be viewed here.


Our main projects are:

  • Conventions Conventions around how apps and services store data on your personal data store (project lead Michiel de Jong).
  • Solid Test Suites Test suites for protocols a Personal Data Store may support (project lead Michiel de Jong).
  • Solid Nextcloud A plugin to make Nextcloud compatible with Solid (project lead Yvo Brevoort).
  • PHP Solid Server A standalone PHP Solid server (project lead Ben Peachey).
  • Awesome Solid Awesome list of Solid (social inked data) tools, libraries, resources, and shiny things (project lead Ben Peachey).
  • PDS Migrator Making it easy to move data from one server to another (project lead Yvo Brevoort).
