KBox: Distributing Ready-to-Query RDF Knowledge Graphs
The Semantic Web community has successfully contributed to a remarkable number of RDF datasets published on the Web. However, to use and build applications on top of Linked Data is still a cumbersome and time-demanding task. We present KBox, an open-source platform that facilitates the distribution and consumption of RDF data. We show the different APIs implemented by KBox, as well as the processing steps from a SPARQL query to its corresponding result. Additionally, we demonstrate how KBox can be used to share RDF knowledge graphs and to instantiate SPARQL endpoints.
