Description : GNU R tools to manipulate and query semantic data
The Resource Description Framework, or 'RDF' is a widely used
data representation model that forms the cornerstone of the
Semantic Web. 'RDF' represents data as a graph rather than
the familiar data table or rectangle of relational databases.
The 'rdflib' package provides a friendly and concise user interface
for performing common tasks on 'RDF' data, such as reading, writing
and converting between the various serializations of 'RDF' data,
including 'rdfxml', 'turtle', 'nquads', 'ntriples', and 'json-ld';
creating new 'RDF' graphs, and performing graph queries using 'SPARQL'.
This package wraps the low level 'redland' R package which
provides direct bindings to the 'redland' C library. Additionally,
the package supports the newer and more developer friendly
'JSON-LD' format through the 'jsonld' package. The package
interface takes inspiration from the Python 'rdflib' library.
