Hi Kingsley:

I recommend you take some time to work with Refine, watch the demos,
and perhaps read the paper that Richard et al published on how they
have used and extended Refine (or Gridworks as it was)

But to answer you question:

They have produced a plugin that complements the ability to map a
table structure to a Freebase schema and graph, by providing the same
functionality for RDF. So a simple way to define how RDF should be
generated from data in a Refine project, using either existing or
custom schemas.

The end result can then be exported using various serialisations.

My extension simply extends that further by providing the ability to
POST the data to a Talis Platform store. It'd be trivial to tweak that
code to support POSTing to another resource, or wrapping the data into
a SPARUL insert

Ideally it'd be nice to roll the core of this into the DERI extension
for wider use.
