Albert,

Have you considered generating RDF-based descriptions of the operations
(actions) encapsulated by the APIs you are generating, using terms from
Schema.org, for instance?

Doing so enables powerful loose-coupling for RDF-aware smart agents [1].

form here to a console generated from action descriptions

-- Action Description Example that's copy and paste friendly re.,
generating your own descriptions.
