Linked Data Tools and Workflows
At Linked Pasts IV in Mainz 2018, the Linked Pasts Network had a Session on "Parallel Breakous with Buffet Lunch", chaired by Leif Isaksen and Valeria Vitale (Pelagios Commons). Table 1 discussed about Tools and Pipelines. As a result, the #LinkedPipes were born and can be feeded / asked by the following web applications:
- hungry squirrels: http://hungry.squirrel.link
- feed the squirrel: http://turtlenator.linkedpipes.xyz
- query linked tools: http://toolinator.linkedpipes.xyz
- query linked pipes: http://pipinator.linkedpipes.xyz
How to contribute?
The Linked Pipes semantic modelling is based on the RSE Tools Ontology, which is available as OWL file via the Research Squirrel Engineers. The ontology assumes that a tool is linked into the Linked Open Data Cloud via Wikidata. The tools must be an instance of a Little Minion. Please follow the next steps to create your Little Minion, aka Linked Tool and Linked Pipe.
- Create a Wikidata account.
- Login on Wikidata.
- Create a new Item on Wikidata, language: en, label: tool name, description: short description.
- Describe your item (linked tool).
- It is recommended to tag instances like Q193424 (web service), Q312466 (utility software), Q7397 (software) or Q184148 (plug-in).
- It is recommended to tag genres (P136), developes (P178), a git source code repository (P1324), official website (P856), etc.
- Examples: Alligator or SPARQLing Unicorn QGIS Plugin
- After that process, keep the Q... identifier in mind.
turtlenator / GitHub
- Open the turtlenator.
- Create a Linked Tool or Linked Pipe and copy the turtle fragment.
- Create a Github account or login.
- Open the linkedpipes.ttl source file, edit it, copy the turtle fragment (without the prefixes) into the file and send a pull request.
- If the request will get accepted, you can see your Tool or Pipe in the toolinator or pipinator.
