General Approach

  • catalog_controller is reduced, and creates configurations such as the following:

      config.repository_class     = Blacklight::Sparql::Repository
      config.search_builder_class = ::SearchBuilder
      config.document_model       = ::SparqlDocument
      config.response_model       = Blacklight::Sparql::Response
    
  • SparqlRepository is based on Blacklight::AbstractRepository

    • Returns a Concise Bounded Description of the document denoted by an IRI
    • Executes a SPARQL query against the endpoint, returning a result set
  • SparqlBuilder

Setup

On a Mac, install Homebrew.

Using Homebrew, install MongoDB:

  • brew install mongodb

Follow steps to have MongoDB start on login and run lanuchctl to start immediately (details may vary):

  • ln -sfv /usr/local/opt/mongodb/*.plist ~/Library/LaunchAgents
  • launchctl load ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.mongodb.plist

Subsequently, perform rails initialization:

  • bundle install
  • bundle exec rake db:migrate
  • bundle exec rake db:seed

Tests can be run using:

RAILS_ENV=test bundle exec rake db:test:prepare
RAILS_ENV=test bundle exec rake db:seed
RAILS_ENV=test bundle exec rake

Service can be run locally using bundle exec rails server

Running on Blazegraph

Installing Blazegraph for macOS

  • brew install blazegraph

Follow steps to have MongoDB start on login and run lanuchctl to start immediately (details may vary):

sudo cp -fv /usr/local/opt/blazegraph/*.plist /Library/LaunchDaemons
sudo chown root /Library/LaunchDaemons/homebrew.mxcl.blazegraph.plist

Then to load blazegraph now:

sudo launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/homebrew.mxcl.blazegraph.plist

Or, if you don't want/need launchctl, you can just run:

blazegraph start

Installing Blazegraph for Debian/Ubuntu

Configuring Blazegraph

Production

  • This section provides no advice on how to install and run blazegraph for production operations concerns.
  • Create a new blazegraph namespace, say sparqlite, using the defaults for a triples KB, and select 'use' it.
  • Load data using the blazegraph UI at http://localhost:9999/blazegraph/#update
    • Browse to db/nomisma-full.ttl and select Update.

Once the data is loaded into blazegraph, return to the sparqlite console to perform rails initialization:

bundle install
RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake db:migrate
RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake db:seed # this is done manually above
RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake secrets
# Add that value to `config/secrets.yml`

Run the server in production mode pointing to this BlazeGraph SPARQL endpoint:

export SPARQL_URL=http://localhost:9999/blazegraph/namespace/sparqlite/sparql
RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rails server

Development (demonstrations)

  • Exploring the application is much faster using blazegraph
  • Create a new blazegraph namespace, say sparqlite-development, using the defaults for a triples KB, and select 'use' it.
  • Load data using the blazegraph UI at http://localhost:9999/blazegraph/#update
    • Browse to db/nomisma_full.ttl and select Update. Once the data is loaded into blazegraph, return to the sparqlite console to prepare and run specs:
export SPARQL_URL=http://localhost:9999/blazegraph/namespace/sparqlite-development/sparql
# RAILS_ENV=development is the default
bundle exec rails s

Tests

  • Create a new blazegraph namespace, say sparqlite-test, using the defaults for a triples KB, and select 'use' it.
  • Load data using the blazegraph UI at http://localhost:9999/blazegraph/#update
    • Browse to db/nomisma.ttl and select Update. Once the data is loaded into blazegraph, return to the sparqlite console to prepare and run specs:
export SPARQL_URL=http://localhost:9999/blazegraph/namespace/sparqlite-test/sparql
RAILS_ENV=test bundle exec rake db:test:prepare
RAILS_ENV=test bundle exec rake db:seed # may not work as expected, but manual loading is done as above
RAILS_ENV=test bundle exec rake

# To view the test data in the application:
RAILS_ENV=development bundle exec rails s
