-**Seki is a front-end to an independent SPARQL server using node.js**
-
-It operates as a Web server, building queries from HTTP requests and passing them to the SPARQL server and formatting the results to HTML which is passed back to the client (typically a browser).
-

-
-The current version has been written for an RDF tutorial and right now only features basic functionality. It has minimal dependency on other modules.
-
-There are two branches in the git repository: master and dev. Master is essentially frozen (tweaks & bugfixes only). dev is in active development.
-
-_to switch to the dev branch you need (I think) to:
-git branch dev
-git checkout dev
-git pull origin dev
-_
-
-
-If (were it live) you pointed a browser at http://hyperdata.org/seki/Hello it would take "http://hyperdata.org/seki/Hello" to build a query to find out about that resource - in the data store it will have a title, content etc. - which then get turned into HTML to show in the browser.
-
-There is a form to allow POSTing, inserting title, content etc. for a given resource into the RDF store (there's no authentication as yet). Files can also be served from the filesystem.
-
-It has been built against a Fuseki server, which uses protocols/query syntax according to the latest SPARQL 1.1 drafts, and so it should be reusable with any SPARQL server.
-
-(Note that the current version includes a little SAX-based XML SPARQL results to JSON converter, this was for demo purposes (don't ask!) - future versions *may* use JSON SPARQL results directly).
-
-At present it considers all resources to be information resources - the ones that get displayed are instances of sioc:Post. Descriptions of those resources are contained in little named graphs (named by the resources in question). The Fuseki config includes _#dataset tdb:unionDefaultGraph true_ so SPARQL queries can be applied over a (virtual) merge of all the named graphs.
-
-After the tutorial version is stable the plan is to use it as an experimental Read/Write Data Web testbed, e.g. adding support for the linked data API, RDF affordances play.
-
-See contents.txt in individual folders for description.
-
-Installation/running is easy :
-
-* install node.js (or copy node.exe into the src dir)
-* run Fuseki using Fuseki-0.2.0/run.bat (make executable first on *nix)
-* node seki.js
-* point a browser at http://localhost:8888/seki/
-
-post data should have URIs of the form http://hyperdata.org/seki/Hello
-the Fuseki server (SPARQL endpoint) will be accessible at http://localhost:3030/
