Seven years after Linked Data has been introduced as a concept to publish data on the web, an abundant cloud of Linked Open Data (LOD) built upon standard web technologies has emerged. To facilitate and encourage widespread use of that data, a critical step is now to streamline the process for creating applications on top of LOD. This paper discusses lessons learned while developing an open standards-based platform that aims to achieve that by means of Linked Widgets. Whereas resources are already connected in the LOD cloud, Linked Widgets in a similar vein aim to alleviate LOD application development in an open and interlinked fashion. Through reuse, we aim to foster both usersĀ“ and developersĀ“ productivity and creativity.
