  22. 22. Structured Data in HTML ● Helps machines extract relevant data from HTML ● Can make use of this data in new ways: – enhanced search results – Knowledge graph ● Search engines only index HTML
  23. 23. Structured Data in HTML ● HTML attributes ● Syntaxes – Microformats (@class, @rel) – RDFa (@property, @typeof, @resource…) – Microdata (@itemscope, @itemtype, @itemprop, …)
  24. 24. Schema.org
  25. 25. Schema.org ● Describe the type of your content (Person, Event, Recipe, Product, Book, Movie, etc.) – 416 types and counting ● Each type has a set of properties – Common properties: name, description, image, url – Specific properties depending on the type (see type page on schema.org) – 544 properties and counting

  35. 35. RDF architecture in Drupal 7
  36. 36. Architecture ● User driven data model
  37. 37. Content types and Fields
  38. 38. Content types and Fields
  39. 39. Node
  40. 40. Drupal 7 and RDF ● The RDF mapping API allows any vocabulary ● Default mappings on blogs, forums, comments, etc. using FOAF, SIOC, DC, SKOS ● Drupal 7 core outputs these mappings in RDFa ● Mappings can be changed to include other vocabularies like schema.org
  41. 41. Drupal 7 default RDF mappings
  42. 42. Drupal 7 core RDF limitations ● No schema.org out of the box ● No UI for managing the RDF mappings ● Only core fields are supported (text, file, image) – No support for contrib fields: addressfield, fivestar ● No native support for Views or Panels – Display suite 2.0 is OK ● Some contrib modules can help fix the above ● Drupal 8 to fix these many of these issues
  43. 43. Drupal 7 and RDF ● Contributed module for more features ● RDF Extensions ● Serialization formats: RDF/XML, Turtle, N-Triples ● Mapping UI ● RDF Indexer ● Expose Drupal RDF data in a SPARQL Endpoint ● SPARQL Views ● Display remote RDF data in Drupal using SPARQL ● JSON-LD ● Expose Drupal RDF data as JSON-LD (CORS-enabled) ● Features and packaging ● Build distributions / deployment workflow
  44. 44. Drupal and SPARQL
  45. 45. RDF store + SPARQL Endpoint ● Indexing Module: https://drupal.org/project/rdf_indexer Documentation: https://drupal.org/node/2028111
  46. 46. RDF store + SPARQL Endpoint ● Public endpoint available at /sparql
  47. 47. RDF store + SPARQL Endpoint ● Lessons learnt: – Previous implementation didn't scale – http://drupal.org/project/sparql is deprecated (unless you use the SPARQL registry with other modules) – Use https://drupal.org/project/rdf_indexer instead – Documentation: https://drupal.org/node/2028111
  48. 48. RDF store + SPARQL Endpoint ● Functionalities – RDF Indexer is built on top of Search API – Search API offers many of the capabilities needed: ● Track entities that need to be indexed ● Workflows ● Integration with Drush (list, status, clear, index) ● Cron ● OOP – Service class for plugins – Integration with Features (config management)
  49. 49. RDF store + SPARQL Endpoint ● Example: popular tags by comments – http://openspring.net/sparql PREFIX dc: <http://purl.org/dc/terms/> PREFIX sioc: <http://rdfs.org/sioc/ns#> SELECT ?tag sum(?replies) as ?total_replies WHERE { ?post sioc:num_replies ?replies. ?post dc:subject [ rdfs:label ?tag ] . } GROUP BY ?tag ORDER BY DESC(?total_replies)
  50. 50. How to get involved ● Drupal group: – http://groups.drupal.org/semantic-web ● IRC on freenode: #drupal-rdf ● Report bugs or ask support questions on drupal.org
  51. 51. Thanks! ● Stéphane Corlosquet: – scorlosquet@gmail.com – @scorlosquet – http://openspring.net/
