RDFSharp is a lightweight C# framework designed to ease the creation of .NET applications based on the RDF model, representing a straightforward didactic solution for start playing with RDF and Semantic Web concepts.

With RDFSharp it is possible to realize .NET applications capable of modeling, storing and querying RDF data.
RDFSharp has a modular API made up of three layers:
  • RDFSharp.Model
    • Create and manage RDF models (resources, literals, triples, graphs, namespaces, datatypes, ...)
    • Exchange them using standard RDF formats (N-Triples, TriX, Turtle, Xml);
  • RDFSharp.Store
    • Create and manage RDF stores backing data on memory or SQL Server
    • Exchange them using standard RDF formats (N-Quads)
    • Create and manage RDF federations giving integrated query access to multiple stores
  • RDFSharp.Query
    • Create and execute SPARQL queries on graphs, stores and federations to fluently query RDF data

Plugins are also available, to extend the capabilities of the core library with specific layers and functionalities:
  • RDFSharp.Semantics
    • Create and manage OWL-DL ontologies (classes, properties, restrictions, facts, relations, ...)
    • Validate them against RDFS/OWL-DL specifications to report warning/error evidences
    • Create and manage RDFS/OWL-DL/Custom reasoners to materialize inferred knowledge
  • RDFSharp.RDFFirebirdStore
    • Create and manage RDF stores backing data on Firebird
  • RDFSharp.RDFMySQLStore
    • Create and manage RDF stores backing data on MySQL
  • RDFSharp.RDFPostgreSQLStore
    • Create and manage RDF stores backing data on PostgreSQL
  • RDFSharp.RDFSQLiteStore
    • Create and manage RDF stores backing data on SQLite

There are many ways that you can contribute to the RDFSharp project:
  • Submit a bug
  • Submit a code fix for a bug
  • Submit a feature request
  • Submit code for a feature request
  • Submit code for a new plugin
  • Tell others about the RDFSharp project :)
  • Kindly donate to non-profit italian charity organization Soleterre :)

RDFSharp is also available on NuGet and GitHub!
