RDF String

Build Status Coverage Status npm version Greenkeeper badge

This package contains utility functions to convert between the string-based and RDFJS representations of RDF terms, quads and triples.

This allows for convenient and compact interaction with RDF terms and quads.

This string-based representation is based on the triple representation of N3.js.

Usage

The following examples assume the following imports:

import * as RdfDataModel from "rdf-data-model";
import * as RdfString from "rdf-string";

Term to string

Convert an RDFJS term to the string-based representation.

// Prints http://example.org
console.log(RdfString.termToString(RdfDataModel.namedNode('http://example.org')));
 
// Prints _:b1
console.log(RdfString.termToString(RdfDataModel.blankNode('b1')));
 
// Prints "abc"
console.log(RdfString.termToString(RdfDataModel.literal('abc')));
 
// Prints "abc"@en-us
console.log(RdfString.termToString(RdfDataModel.literal('abc', 'en-us')));
 
// Prints "abc"^^http://example.org/
console.log(RdfString.termToString(RdfDataModel.literal('abc', namedNode('http://example.org/'))));
 
// Prints ?v1
console.log(RdfString.termToString(RdfDataModel.variable('v1')));
 
// Prints empty string
console.log(RdfString.termToString(RdfDataModel.defaultGraph()));

String to term

Convert an string-based term to the RDFJS representation.

Optionally, a custom RDFJS DataFactory can be provided as second argument to create terms instead of the built-in DataFactory.

// Outputs a named node
RdfString.stringToTerm('http://example.org');
 
// Outputs a blank node
RdfString.stringToTerm('_:b1');
 
// Outputs a literal
RdfString.stringToTerm('"abc"');
 
// Outputs a literal with a language tag
RdfString.stringToTerm('"abc"@en-us');
 
// Outputs a literal with a datatype
RdfString.stringToTerm('"abc"^^http://example.org/');
 
// Outputs a variable
RdfString.stringToTerm('?v1');
 
// Outputs a default graph
RdfString.stringToTerm('');

Quad to string-based quad

Convert an RDFJS quad to a string-based quad.

// Prints { subject: 'http://example.org', predicate: 'http://example.org', object: '"abc"', graph: '' }
console.log(RdfString.quadToStringQuad(RdfDataModel.triple(
  namedNode('http://example.org'),
  namedNode('http://example.org'),
  literal('abc'),
)));

String-based quad to quad

Converts a string-based quad to an RDFJS quad.

Optionally, a custom RDFJS DataFactory can be provided as second argument to create quads and terms instead of the built-in DataFactory.

// Outputs a quad
RdfString.stringQuadToQuad({
  subject: 'http://example.org',
  predicate: 'http://example.org',
  object: '"abc"',
  graph: '',
});
