SPARQLy

This TWiki web contains information and notions related to the SPARQLy project.

Project Goals

Not surprisingly, SPARQLy's goals tend to involve SPARQL. They also (for the moment, at least) have a strong Ruby flavor, based on (at least) convenience and interest for the developers. Anyway, here's the current (WIP!) list:

  • Adding SPARQL endpoints for selected data (eg, metadata for Ruby Gems).

  • Encouraging collaboration among developers and users (eg, discussion and indexing of recipes, development of infrastructure).

  • Encouraging wider adoption of SPARQL, especially in the Ruby and web development communities.

  • Experimenting with related topics (eg, GUIs, wikis, query pre- and post-processing).

In short, SPARQLy strives to make SPARQL more convenient and powerful for both novice and expert users.

Sub-projects

Lofty goals aside, the current sub-project list is quite short:

  • SPARQLy Ruby - Make Ruby code (eg, Gems) SPARQL

    Harvest metadata from Ruby code, using static and dynamic analysis (eg, Bundler, Laser, Metric_fu, tests, YARD), etc.

  • SPARQLy GUIs - GUIs, optimized for SPARQL

    Create Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) which make SPARQL easier and more powerful to use, using additional technologies such as D3, Ember, HTML5, jQuery, and JSON-LD.
