This Wiki contains a collection of tool references that can help in developing Semantic Web applications. These include complete development environments, editors, libraries or modules for various programming languages, specialized browsers, etc. The goal is to list such tools and not Semantic Web applications in general (the interested reader may consider looking at the W3C SW Use Case Collection for those.)
The tool content of this wiki is still to be maintained by the community and not by the W3C staff. If you are interested in adding to and/or modifying the relevant pages, please consult the separate Tool Contributors’ page.
The current Wiki contains references to 341 tools. Although it is possible to show them in a list or in a table, the result is not easy to parse. Here are some other possibilities that might be helpful:
- Search through programming languages (e.g., Java, Python, Ruby). These are particularly useful in developing Semantic Web applications.
- Search through W3C Recommendations and Technologies (e.g., RDF, RDFa, OWL) to find tools that are relevant in that technology.
Tool Data in RDF
Thanks to the possibilities offered by Semantic Media Wiki, each tool page has a link to the corresponding RDF data describing that particular tool and, whenever possible, links to other information (e.g., a corresponding entry on Semanticweb.org) have been added, but there are obviously missing entries. Hopefully, the community will improve that over time.
There is also an option to get one RDF/XML graph for all tools. Unfortunately, that data does include the properties associated with each tool, only a reference to each individual tool’s RDF data. (Getting a direct RDF dump of all the data is not yet possible in the local setup of Semantic Media Wiki.)
