Helio is a framework that allows generating and publishing RDF data from different heterogeneous sources as Linked Data.
What Helio can do for you
For users Helio generates synchronously or asynchronously Knowledge Graphs from a set of heterogeneous sources:
- Generating the RDF of the KG into a file
- Link resources using linking rules
- Use different mapping languages to generate RDF and links among its resources
- Use an external triple store as Helio database
- Publish the RDF as a Linked Data Service (prividing access to resources, a SPARQL endpoint, and the whole dataset)
- Customise the HTML views of the Linked Data Service
- Create views dynamically combining data of different RDF resources
- Provide an integrated view of different distributed Helios or SPARQL endpoints
For developers Helio can be used as a maven dependency for:
- Generating RDF and links among resources
- Developing plugins for new functionalities
