Where collaborative data space innovation happens
The open-source portfolio of IDS building blocks is a collective development environment where you can find IDS components in a variety of implementations, and you can work with others on IDS ideas transparently and collaboratively. Everyone is welcome to participate.
How can you be part of IDS Open Source?
We welcome all interested parties — either they are contributors or external reviewers — to join IDS Open Source. You can find more information on our GitHub repository. To contribute, you’ll need to sign into your GitHub account, or create a free account if you don’t have one.
GitHub is the creative workspace where you can comment on the code, add to it and build it into something new. It gives everyone a new kind of control, making coding more fun and more productive. But GitHub is not only for geeks. It is IDSA’s knowledge base where you can learn more about the fundamentals of our work, how to build data spaces and the IDSA graduation scheme. But these are just a few examples.
The open-source environment is efficient, agile and transparent; it creates a collaborative atmosphere that welcomes ideas, contribution requests and feedback. Everyone involved in IDS wants implementations to reach the highest quality possible — the IDS Open-Source landscape maximizes the possibilities.
Become a contributor
IDS Open-Source repositories are the place where fruitful discussions happen. You can use this opportunity to meet other members of the community, review the code, provide feedback, report bugs, and improve the quality and functionality of end products.
Frequently Asked Questions
