The nominees for the LOD Triplification Challenge are up! The challenge was organized as part of the preparations for the I-SEMANTICS 2008 conference and asked for submissions in the form of applications of Linked Open Data tools, RDF and Linked Data exporters, adoptions of configurations of Triplify for standard web applications, portings of the triplify script into other languages (e.g. Python, Ruby, Perl, ASP) and for applications showcasing the benefits of Linked Data to end-users.
Triplify itself is a small web application plugin – its crucial parts consisting of roughly 200 lines of code – currently only implemented in PHP. It is based on the definition of relational database queries for a specific web application in order to retrieve valuable information and to convert the results of these queries into RDF, JSON and Linked Data.
