Oxigraph is a graph database implementing the SPARQL standard.
Its goal is to provide a compliant, safe, and fast graph database based on the RocksDB key-value store. It is written in Rust. It also provides a set of utility functions for reading, writing, and processing RDF files.
It is split into multiple parts:
- The database written as a Rust library. Its source code is in the
pyoxigraphthat exposes Oxigraph to the Python world. Its source code is in the
- Oxigraph server that provides a standalone binary of a web server implementing the SPARQL 1.1 Protocol and the SPARQL 1.1 Graph Store Protocol. Its source code is in the
Oxigraph implements the following specifications:
- SPARQL 1.1 Query, SPARQL 1.1 Update, and SPARQL 1.1 Federated Query.
- Turtle, TriG, N-Triples, N-Quads, and RDF XML RDF serialization formats for both data ingestion and retrieval using the Rio library.
- SPARQL Query Results XML Format, SPARQL 1.1 Query Results JSON Format and SPARQL 1.1 Query Results CSV and TSV Formats.
A preliminary benchmark is provided. There is also a document describing Oxigraph technical architecture.
The easiest way to set up the development environment is to use Visual Studio Code's development containers. Note that this requires Docker Desktop on Windows and Mac and Docker CE/EE on Linux.
Open the repository with Visual Studio Code and use the Command Palette to run
Remote-Containers: Rebuild Container. This will re-open the project inside a development container with the Rust toolchain and Python dependencies installed. For more details on how the development container is set up, see .devcontainer/devcontainer.json and .devcontainer/Dockerfile.
For further development details, see the README in each of the respective sub-projects.
