Grawiki - A Wiki (and aggregator) for graph-shaped data

Testing a first instance of Grawiki
In case you watched the "DriftR" screencast I created in December, there is now a live version online. (I dropped the initial name, my blog posts suddenly showed up in CrunchBase. ;-)

Grawiki is a SPARQL-based Data Wiki, a little bit inspired by freebase, less impressive, feature-rich, scalable and all that, but, well, OpenSource, SemWeb-enabled, and decentralized (each Grawiki installation can import selected graphs from other ones, back-POSTing is in the works). As it seems that I forgot to write-protect the instance mentioned above, you can play with it if you like. You'll most probably encounter bugs, the built-in inferencer is still at alpha stage, and editing of consolidated bnodes is quite tricky to implement. I'll tweak things in a day or two.

With Grawiki, I think I finally have (the start of) a tool that could work nicely for ad-hoc RDF editing and aggregation (it can import RDF and certain microformats). Oh, and a personal URI, and a FOAF file. At last ;-)

I'm now considering the addition of RDFa injections as a possible next step, the current editor uses a home-grown mechanism to activate the editing hooks and stuff, which was easier to implement and debug in my XHTML 1.0 development environment. Stay tuned, a download site probably won't be up before next week, gotta focus on urrrgent SWEO/knowee todos first...

DriftR Linked Data Browser and Editor (Screencast)

A screencast of DriftR, an RDF browser/editor for Trice
While I'm unfortunately struggling to find paid projects these days, I had at least some time to work on core technology for my Trice framework and a new knowee release. The latest module is an in-browser RDF viewer and editor for Linked Data, heavily inspired by the freebase UI (hopefully with less screen flickering, though).

I'm clearly not there yet, but today I uploaded a screencast (quicktime 4MB), and I think I can start incorporating it into the knowee tools soon. Have fun watching it if you like, and Merry X-Mas!
