Hi Leigh,

sounds like an interesting alternative to Pubby
(http://www4.wiwiss.fu-berlin.de/pubby/) if I understand it right.

Cheers,

Chris

> Hi all,

> Yesterday, at the 2nd Linked Data London Meetup, Dave Reynolds, Jeni
> Tennison and myself ran a workshop introducing some work we've been
> doing around a "Linked Data API".
> 
> The API is intended to be a middle-ware layer that can be deployed
> in-front of a SPARQL endpoint, providing the ability to create a
> RESTful data access layer for accessing the RDF data contained in the
> triple store. The middle-ware is configurable, and is intended to
> support a range of different access patterns and output formats. "Out
> of the box" the system provides delivery of the standard range of RDF
> serialisations, as well as simple JSON and XML serializations for
> descriptions of lists of resources. The API essentially maps
> parameterized URLs to underlying SPARQL queries, mediating the content
> negotiation of the results into a suitable format for the client.

> We'd be interested in your feedback. Please join the list if you're
