    Abstract

    In this position paper, we discuss our experiences with a lightweight Web of Things (WoT) toolkit and use those experiences to explore what an effective WoT toolkit looks like. We argue that while the WoT community has experimented, like us, with a variety of toolkits, it hasn’t yet found one that appeals sufficiently to a broad range of developers. This failure, we believe, is hindering the adoption of the WoT and the growth of the community. We conclude the paper with a set of open questions, which, although not exhaustive, are aimed at opening up a community discussion on the needs of developers and how best the community can meet those needs and so further the adoption of the WoT. In essence, we believe that the time may be right to begin to agree on some basic functionality and approaches to WoT toolkits.
