Project description

SARI Field Definitions Generator

A generator for Metaphacts/ResearchSpace field definitions


install using pip

pip install sari-field-definitions-generator


Define field definitions as a Python dict or in an external yaml file:



    - id: {unique identifier}
      label: {label}
      description: {description}
      dataType: {datatype}
      domain: {domain}
      range: {range}
      minOccurs: #
      maxOccurs: #
        - ask: '{ask query}'
        - delete: '{delete query}'
        - insert: '{insert query}'
        - select: '{select query}'
        - valueSet: '{value set query}'

    - ...

Then, load and compile it using the generator

from sariFieldDefinitionsGenerator import generator

inputFile = './fieldDefinitions.yml'
outputFile = '../ldp/assets/fieldDefinitions.trig'

model = generator.loadSourceFromFile(inputFile)

output = generator.generate(model, generator.METAPHACTS)

with open(outputFile, 'w') as f:

Available templates are:

  • generator.METAPHACTS for Metaphacts Open Source Platform
  • generator.RESEARCHSPACE for ResearchSpace
  • generator.UNIVERSAL for both platforms
  • generator.JSON for a JSON representation
  • generator.INLINE for a Backend Template version
