Dear James

Being an user of ajar API, I immediately tested the Tabulator Firefox 
Extension.   Thanks for the good work.

As a test, I tried to view the follow ontology from stanford's ontology 
server 

 
http://bioontology.org/projects/ontologies/radlex/radlexOwlFulComponentl.owl

But it only displayed as xml file in regular viewer.  However, when I put 
the same ontology on my local drive and use a local server (this local 
server is a semantic web server and has some content negotiation 
capability, for example on-fly conversion from n3 to rdf), the same 
ontology shows up in the tabulator viewer in firefox. 

I am wondering if there is any implied requirement on the server side in 
order to invoke the tabulator viewer?

Kind regards.

Helen

Tabulator Firefox Extension Alpha








Greetings,

Today I am pleased to announce an alpha release of the Tabulator Firefox
Extension!

http://dig.csail.mit.edu/2007/tab/

Based on code from the original Tabulator web application, the Tabulator
Extension integrates the ability to browse linked data directly into 
Firefox. 
After installing the extension, pages served as application/rdf+xml and 
text/n3
will be automatically loaded into a Tabulator outline view for easy 
browsing.  A
 single store contains all of the data found during a Firefox session, 
smushing
the data from all loaded documents together as you continue to browse. 
Queries can then be generated across the entire store in the same way as 
the
original Tabulator web application.

New in this version is the ability to directly edit files in real time 
through
the outline interface.  This feature is still largely in testing (it 
allows 
the user to enter values that should not be valid in many cases), but it 
is a
very powerful interface for quickly editing RDF.  A testing environment 
for 
editing has been set up at http://dig.csail.mit.edu/2007/wiki/ .

Since the Tabulator Extension is still in its early stages, we would 
appreciate
as much feedback as possible.  The issue tracker for the Tabulator project 
is 
located at http://dig.csail.mit.edu/issues/tabulator/ .  Also, a page for 
more
general discussion has been created on the ESW Wiki at 
http://esw.w3.org/topic/TabulatorExtension .  Finally, feel free to send
questions directly to the Tabulator team at tabulator@csail.mit.edu .

Thanks!

James Hollenbach / The Tabulator Team
