Crosscloud is a project spearheaded by the Decentralized Information Group, aiming to create a platform that enables developers to build decentralized Web applications in which users have total control over their data. This thesis presents the results of my work: gojsonld, a library for the JSON-LD linked data format written in the Go programming language, and ldnode, a server developed on the Node.js framework which acts as a back-end for Web applications. gojsonld allows Crosscloud applications written in Go to use the JSON-LD format, which is based on the popular JSON format and is widely used in the design of Web application APIs. ldnode allows applications to create, read, and write linked data resources and implements decentralized authentication and access control.
