Hello everybody,

I am a new member of this list and first of all I wish everybody Happy  

I also take the occasion to introduce the RDF plugin for web2py.


web2py is an Open Source web framework for rapid application  
development written in Python and programmable in Python. web2py runs  
almost everywhere and includes everything you need for web development  
in one package including a ssl-enabled web server, a transaction-safe  
relational database, a web-based IDE, a web-based database  
administration tool, and a Database Abstraction Layer that writes SQL  
for you and works transparently on SQLite, MySQL, Postgresql, Oracle,  
MSSQL, FireBird, DB2, Informix, Ingres, and on Google App Engine.

Web2py requires no installation: just download, unzip and click to  
start it.
You can see an online demo here:


The RDF plugin allows to label (tag) database fields and relations  
with ontologies and web2py automatically exposes the data in the  
database as Linked Data via a RESTful web service. Works with all   
database back-ends listed above.

Any comment and feedback will be appreciated.
