Semwidgjs: A semantic widget library for the rapid development of user interfaces for linked open data

Timo Stegemann and Jürgen Ziegler


In this paper we introduce SemwidgJS, a JavaScript based library for displaying Linked Open Data via Semantic Widgets. SemwidgJS can be integrated in almost any website and handles the querying, processing and displaying of semantic data. SemwidgJS facilitates the retrieval of semantic data with its own simplified query language SemwidgQL, a Path Query Language that allows the traversal of the Linked Data graph. For complex queries, standard SPARQL can be used as well. We pursue two objectives with this development: first, we want to provide appropriate widgets for the full range of different data types in semantic databases, second, we aim at enabling Web content publishers who are not experts in semantic technologies to make use of these data in their ordinary Web development activities.
