The continuous growth of the Linked Data Web brings us closer to the original vision of the Web, as an interconnected network of machine-readable resources. However, the ability to easily manipulate Linked Open Data (LOD) is still an open issue. In this demonstration we will show through a lifecycle model how to enable a domain-agnostic read/write interaction with LOD. Our solution uses an ontology to build a binding front-end for a given RDF model, in addition to RDFa to maintain the semantics of the resulting form/widget components. On the processing side, a RESTful Web service is provided to seamlessly manage semantic widgets and their associated data, and hence enable the read/write data interaction mechanism.
