Project description

Welcome to pyLDAPI

A very small module to add Linked Data API functionality to a Python Flask installation.

What is it?

This module contains only a small Python module which is intended to be added (imported) into a Python Flask installation in order to add a series of extra functions to endpoints to the ones defined by you as a Flask user (URL routes).

An API using this module will get:

  • an alternates view for each Register and Object that the API delivers
    • if the API declares the appropriate model views for each item
  • a Register of Registers
    • a start-up function that auto-generates a Register of Registers is run when the API is launched.
  • a basic, over-writeable template for Registers’ HTML & RDF


Alternates View
