h2. RDFAuthor

MarinN: Editing of RDF data can be implemented with [RDFAuthor|] by AKSW (authors of OntoWiki). It's a fairly seasoned tool for enhancing any HTML page generated from an RDF source with editing functionality. Basically, you annotate the HTML you generate with RDFa which contains the source RDF for the element. RDFauthor is a javascript module that will recognize the RDFa and generate on the fly editing fields. The fields can be as simple as text boxes or more complicated lie autocomplete fields. The autocomplete can be based on the range of the property.


VIE is a project to make the content of your web pages editable through annotations. This means that by simply including some RDFa on your pages you can build rich user interactions and interfaces on the JavaScript level. So the idea is very similar to RDFAuthor

- use in Palsu: []
Palsu is an online collaborative meeting tool. Instead of each participant keeping their own meeting notes, we transform the meeting into a conversation whereby everybody can share their notes in real-time. Meeting notes can be used to add tasks and mention people related to the meeting.

(!) Maria: I think this is a very nice format that we can also use. The stories themselves are also interesting. Do you find something useful?

I wrote on twitter to "@rene_kapusta: Is there a support tracker or forum for Palsu? Get "Client disconnected - try to reconnect". Supports private meetings?"

h3. VIE Notes

# All demos I have seen use Aloha editor. Aloha editor seems pretty handy. It provides a floating toolbar for formatting the currently selected text. New buttons can be added. Aloha modifies directly DOM in the browser and can save them to server when required. There is an extension point for this functionality and different server-side APIs can be supported.
# Aloha states it is about content and not about forms though they seem to support standard input controls (i.e. textarea)
# The semantic part I have seen in demos is related to:
#* Entity recognition inside text - there is a demo for Drupal. They use Aloha and Apache Stanbol, not sure if they use anything from VIE.
#* Recognition for rdfa. We may use rdfa to recognize parts of the content that can be annotated or edited. Also, depending on the rdfa info we may show different menus or buttons in the toolbar.
#* Annotating text by adding rdfa ((inline, in browser and then parsing on server)). We may add rdfa to denote different things - document's structure (title etc.), different types of entities (painters, tasks etc.)
# We may use this VIE+Aloha for the following tasks:
#* General text entry - as in discussions, blogs
#* We may base RS tools on it. For example, we may use it as annotation tool.
# Possible annotation scenario

[^SHAME- Annotation profiles- Configuring forms to edit RDF (DCMA 2007).pdf]
Introduces the Annotation Profile Model as a configuration mechanism from which annotation tools can be automatically generated.
The intention is to encourage metadata\- or domain experts to define annotation profiles according to metadata vocabularies. This will allow end-users or administrators to select appropriate annotation profiles for the task at hand, and then an editor will be provided by the underlying system.
Discusses the design of the Annotation Profile Model, which consists of a data-capturing part (the Graph Pattern Model) and a
presentation part (the Form Template model). An implementation that can generate both web-based and standalone editors is also introduced
- *Keywords: application profile; RDF editing; SPARQL; Fresnel; XForms*
- I found this paper while looking for RDF graph-visualization tools (Fresnel is a language for defining visualizations). But ALL the keywords are relevant to our problem.
- Must be researched in great detail. Promises working software under LGPL (SHAME).
