App Ownership (on OI App Center and elsewhere)

#1

I would like to push for a solution where app publishers are identified by a blockstack id. For that I propose to put an array of blockstack ids and DIDs in the web manifest using attribute did_authors like this:

{
   "name": "OI Chat",
   "start_url": "index.html",
   ...
   "did_authors": ["did:stack:v0:1E72AfQC47JaR3DRhwWVaRnguppAsKRCk4-0",
                "did:stack:v0:1Mk9gNKVdeLsodtbtUssVJmJMRHaEa2hGF-67"] 
}

For OI App Center, I am scanning all app manifests (once a week) and build developer pages like:



I will also continue to add blockstack ids manually, please help me to complete the list of developers.

Note,

  • that Blockstack apps are offered to contact the app publisher (which ones are missing? Only dmail currently provides a direct link to contact the user)
  • that I am looking for help with the design (as always)
  • better share snippets are coming
