The authors present WebPlug, a framework for the emerging Web of Things. It consists of several building blocks which ease integration of things, including their sensors and actuators with the Web. For example, WebPlug supports versioning of and eventing for arbitrary Web resources, like sensor readings, thus simplifying the process of creating physical mash-ups. After providing an analysis that led to the development of WebPlug, the authors present selected aspects of its design. They complete the paper by presenting the application of their framework in a real-world scenario.
