The Item System

Weblins have virtual items.

These items:

  • can be installed on web pages,
  • are available in the client's backpack window,
  • can be transferred to other users,
  • are stored on the client side,
  • interact with other items,
  • control weblin features,
  • are gateways to external applications.
  • Some are backed by crypto tokens (NFTs).

NFT Backed Items

You need Metamask....

Items on Web Pages

Items can be dropped to a web page. It stays there even if you switch tabs. However, if you leave the page the item will be removed as well.

Transferring Items

You can transfer an item to another user. Just drag and drop it.

Decentralized Storage

Items are stores decentralized. There is no server storage. All items are stored in the client. You own your items completely. This is much more scalable. But beware: uninstalling the extension will kill all your items. There will be backup services later.

External Applications

Items are the main interface to external applications. They can open embedded web content and communicate between external applications and the weblin client.

Feature Management

Some items are used to control client features. For example there are items providing avatars, wallet items which give access to your NFT backed items, and page ownership claim items.

Backpack Window

The backpack hold all your items. Open it from the avatar's burger menu.

Interactions

Some items can interact with each other. What they do depends on the combination. For example you can extract points from your points collecting item and then drag those points onto your page claim to make it stronger.
