OBA Sparql Manager

Project description

OBA Sparql Query Manager Build Status codecov

OBA Sparql Query Manager is a Python Module to translate CRUD requests to SPARQL queries. This module is used by OBA project to generate a REST API from OWL ontologies.

OBA sparql use JSON-LD contexts to translate RDF triples to JSON, and vice versa.

Quick Start

Generate the context files

Simply speaking, a context is used to map terms to IRIs. Terms are case sensitive and most valid strings that are not reserved JSON-LD keywords can be used as a term.

To generate the context files, we recommend to use:

  1. OBA
  2. owl2jsonld

TODO: Insert a good example.

from obasparql import QueryManager
from test.settings import dbpedia_queries, dbpedia_context, dbpedia_endpoint, dbpedia_prefix
from obasparql.static import * 
queries = "queries/"
contexts = "contexts/"
dbpedia_endpoint = ""
dbpedia_prefix = ""
graph = None

query_manager = QueryManager(queries_dir=queries,


Supported features

OBA sparql supports two types of queries:

  • Default queries: queries related to the CRUD requests.
    • Get a resource and get all the resource by type.
  • Custom queries: In some cases, users need to implement custom queries that are not the default instances of a class of the ontology (e.g., get all instances of a class that comply with certain conditions)

This repository is using pytest for the testing
