yeah it took a bit longer than we all hoped ;) Tooling is as important
as time consuming when you start where we started. And to be honest I
hoped that more people will join and start contributing to it. It does
get better but still more work needed.

We are still nowhere where we want to be, new stuff is developed when we
have a customer paying for it :)

ok I start to see what you mean with that. I think this is close to what
my Nicola and my colleague Thomas are doing with SimpleRDF:

https://github.com/simplerdf/simplerdf

Again ideas & code contributions are welcome. Note that we do not do
Typescript, ES6 is the game for us. But shouldn't stop anyone using it
in Typescript as well.

Sure and we convert a lot. But it is not that easy to get this done in a
way that domain specialists can do it on their own, without the need of
someone that understands the RDF data model really well.

Will check that plugin out, didn't know this yet.
