UDUVUDU

Triple Mustache. Yo.

Uduvudu aims to be an easy to use extensible and adaptive RDF User Interface engine. With Uduvudu you can create an interface screen by defining a graph and providing reusable matchers as also templates.

The aim of this framework is to consume/render roughly the amount of triples which can be presented on one page or one screen. This can be done in a extremly flexible and also reusable way. The cost you are paying it that the framework is inherently not able to process big ( >10'000 triples ) amounts of data.

Current State

The library is now working in all recent major browsers. Right now the libary can read RDF in Turtle, N-Triple, RDF/XML and JSON-LD through the rdf-ext library.

A live demo on DBpedia data is available as a proof of concept application.

Overview

Uduvudu consists internally out of two parts. First the Matcher which extracts defined structures based on descriptions. Second the Renderer which incorporates the context (language and device) and uses templates to render the final output.

Extend

You can extend the library by adding new matcher factories. Please study the functions uduvudu.matchers.* in src/uduvudu.js which define the current available matcher as factories.

Development

To build the JavaScript files to distribute run node build.js
