Survey of Linked Data and RDF Tools for Python Developers

By   /  March 23, 2011  /  No Comments

This resource from Michele Pasin is an excellent tool for Python developers. As Pasin puts it: “I’m reporting on a recent survey I made in the context of a Linked Data project I’m working on, SAILS. The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a data model and language which is quickly gaining momentum in the open-data and data-integration worlds.

This resource from Michele Pasin is an excellent tool for Python developers. As Pasin puts it: “I’m reporting on a recent survey I made in the context of a Linked Data project I’m working on, SAILS. The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a data model and language which is quickly gaining momentum in the open-data and data-integration worlds. In SAILS we’re developing a prototype for rdf-data manipulation and querying, but since the final application (of which the rdf-components is part of) will be written in Python and Django, in what follows I tried to gather information about all the existing libraries and frameworks for doing rdf-programming using python.”

Pasin goes on to list the available Python libraries for working with RDF as well as RDF triplestores that are Python-friendly. Each list includes a thorough explanation of each library or triplestore, noting the strengths of each tool, providing a basic definition, and linking out to other sources for more information. The post is a must-read for any Python developer.
