rdf: wtf

[ #21865 ]

I searched Freshmeat for "rdf":

  • RDF writing and querying tools
  • A parser and serializer for RDF/XML documents
  • A Python library for processing RDF
  • A store/viewer/editor framework for RDF
  • An RDF parser and serializer library
  • A PHP class for consuming RDF/RSS feeds
  • An RDF query library
  • An application statck for building RDF-based applications and Web sites

Fantastic. Has anybody actually written a practical tool that uses RDF?

  • I'm in the midst of a collaboration on a Web App using RDF as the storage mechanisim. Also:

    • KingUbu is working on a very large web app with RDF as the storage mechanisim.
    • Michael Nachbaur is working on several projects that involve RDF as a storage mechanisim.

    This is just the three people I happen to know who are using mod_perl and RDF. There are a number of non-perl projects using various RDF vocabs. See also FOAF, DOAP, Annotea, Creative Commons...

  • RDF (Rich Data Format) was originally intended to be a "generic" XML format pushed mainly by Netscape. So, RSS 1.0 (but not 0.9x or 2.0) is actually RDF. XUL, which controls the GUI, amongst other things, in Mozilla-based tools, is largely RDF.
