RDFSharp is a lightweight library designed to ease the creation of .NET applications based on the RDF data model, providing users with a straightforward didactic solution for start playing with RDF and Semantic Web concepts. With RDFSharp it is possible to quickly draft solutions for modeling, storing and querying RDF in a user-friendly way.

    • Create and manage RDF models (namespaces, datatypes, resources, literals, containers, collections, triples, graphs, ...);
    • Exchange them using standard RDF formats (N-Triples, Turtle, RDF/XML, TriX);
    • Create and manage RDF stores backing on memory or on different SQL engines (Firebird, SQLite, SQLServer);
    • Create and manage RDF federations as virtual stores giving integrated query access to multiple stores;
  • QUERY (under development)
    • Create and execute SPARQL queries on graphs, stores and federations to fluently query RDF data;
  • SEMANTICS (not started)
    • Create and execute RIF rules to fluently leverage semantic relations between RDF data;
