viaf-jskos

Latest Version Software License Build Status Coverage Status Quality Score Total Downloads

This repository contains a wrapper to access the Virtual International Authority File (VIAF) in JSKOS format via Entity Lookup Microservice API (ELMA).

Requirements

Requires PHP 7, jskos-rdf package and a HTTP client-implementation package.

Installation

Install a HTTP client implementation package, e.g. curl-client and this package:

composer require php-http/curl-client gbv/viaf-jskos

This will automatically create composer.json for your project (unless it already exists) and add viaf-jskos as dependency. Composer also generates vendor/autoload.php to get autoloading of all dependencies.

Usage

The wrapper can be used as instance of class \JSKOS\Service\VIAF, a subclass of \JSKOS\Service:

require 'vendor/autoload.php';

$service = new \JSKOS\Service\VIAF();

$jskos = $service->queryURI("http://viaf.org/viaf/102333412");
$jskos = $service->query(["uri" => "http://viaf.org/viaf/102333412"]);
$jskos = $service->query(["notation" => "102333412"]);

This repository contains a command line script to query VIAF in JSKOS format:

php examples/viaf2jskos.php http://viaf.org/viaf/102333412
php examples/viaf2jskos.php 102333412
php examples/viaf2jskos.php Jane Austen
