DataObjects-backed RDF.rb repository, aiming for a simple use case and currently targeting SQLite and Postgres.
This was written for a tutorial, and is thus a pretty naive implementation so far. RDF::DataObjects stores triples in a simple subject, predicate, object, context table. Don't try to back a big website with it yet. Nonetheless, it works, and it passes all its tests on Heroku as well.
repository = RDF::DataObjects::Repository.new "sqlite3:test.db" repository.insert(statement) repository.count #=> 1 repository.delete(statement)
You can use any DataObjects compatible connection options to create a new repository, but only SQLite3 and Postgres are implemented for now. The different databases are just different enough with their handling of unique constraints that some database-specific work is required for a new adapter, but it's not much.
The greatly preferred installation method is via RubyGems:
$ sudo gem install rdf-do
Manual downloads are available at http://github.com/bhuga/rdf-do/downloads
require 'do_postgres' require 'do_sqlite3' repo = RDF::DataObjects::Repository.new "postgres://localhost/database" repo = RDF::DataObjects::Repository.new "sqlite3:test.db"
Your repository is a fully-functional RDF.rb
RDF::Repository. As with any
RDF.rb repository, this includes the mixins
RDF::Queryable. Please see http://rdf.rubyforge.org/RDF/Repository.html for
require 'rdf' require 'rdf/ntriples' require 'data_objects' require 'do_sqlite3' require 'rdf/do' repo = RDF::DataObjects::Repository.new('sqlite3:test.db') # repo = RDF::DataObjects::Repository.new 'postgres://postgres@server/database' # heroku_repo = RDF::DataObjects::Repository.new(ENV['DATABASE_URL']) repo.load('http://datagraph.org/jhacker/foaf.nt') # How many statements did we have? repo.count #=> 10 # Get the URI of the first subject jhacker = repo.first.subject #=> #<RDF::URI(http://datagraph.org/jhacker/foaf)> # Delete everything to do with it jhacker_statements = repo.query(:subject => jhacker) repo.delete *jhacker_statements repo.count #=> 7 # with Postgres, we could have done this, but SQLite gives us a locking error: # repo.delete(*repo.query(:subject => jhacker)) # Changed our mind--bring it back repo.insert *jhacker_statements repo.count #=> 10
The main project page is on Github, at http://github.com/bhuga/rdf-do. You can get a working copy of the source tree with:
$ git clone git://github.com/bhuga/rdf-do.git
$ wget http://github.com/bhuga/rdf-do/tarball/master
The preferred method to report issues is the issue queue at http://github.com/bhuga/rdf-do/issues. You'll get the the most attention if you submit a failing test for a bug, or a pending test for a feature.
We'd also like to hear from you on the mailing list: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-ruby
