An aggregate RDF::Dataset supporting a subset of named graphs and zero or more named graphs mapped to the default graph.

Gem Version Build Status


Maps named graphs from one or more RDF::Queryable instances into a single dataset, allowing a specific set of named graphs to be seen, as well as a default graph made up from one or more named graphs. This is used to implement RDF Datasets.


require 'rdf'
require 'rdf/nquads'
repo = RDF::Repository.load("http://ruby-rdf.github.com/rdf/etc/doap.nq")

# Instantiate a new aggregate repo based on an existing repo
aggregate = RDF::AggregateRepo.new(repo)

# Use the default graph from the repo as the default graph of the aggregate

# Use a single named graph

# Retrieve all contexts
aggreggate.contexts.to_a #=> [RDF::URI("http://greggkellogg.net/foaf#me")]

This repository uses Git Flow to mange development and release activity. All submissions must be on a feature branch based on the develop branch to ease staging and integration.

  • Do your best to adhere to the existing coding conventions and idioms.
  • Don't use hard tabs, and don't leave trailing whitespace on any line. Before committing, run git diff --check to make sure of this.
  • Do document every method you add using YARD annotations. Read the tutorial or just look at the existing code for examples.
  • Don't touch the .gemspec or VERSION files. If you need to change them, do so on your private branch only.
  • Do feel free to add yourself to the CREDITS file and the corresponding list in the the README. Alphabetical order applies.
  • Don't touch the AUTHORS file. If your contributions are significant enough, be assured we will eventually add you in there.
  • Do note that in order for us to merge any non-trivial changes (as a rule of thumb, additions larger than about 15 lines of code), we need an explicit public domain dedication on record from you.
