Seth keeps bugging people about a Wiki that uses RDF, so I wrote one in


Some documentation is available for it at:-


but it's pretty straightforward. Just change a couple of variables at the
top to your directory path, and absolute URI for the Wiki, run it as a CGI,
and to start it just go to "/rdfwiki?go=1". What could be simpler? :-)

It's like any conventional Wiki [1], except that all of the WikiNames have
URIs (when exported), and all of the data is stored as RDF. Instead of just
putting some information under each WikiPage, you have to supply a
predicate (which can be a WikiName or a URI), and an object (which can be a
WikiName or a Literal). The Wiki can be exported as N-Triples (and only
N-Triples at the moment).

Thanks to Seth for constantly bugging people about the idea, and to TimBL
for ENQUIRE [2] which was another source of inspiration for RDFWiki.
