Exporting Entities using OSF for Drupal (Screencast Tutorial)
This screencast will introduce you to the
OSF for Drupal features that let you export
Drupal Entities in one of the following supported serializations:
- RDF+XML (RDF in XML)
- RDF+N3 (RDF in N3)
- structJSON (Internal OSF RDF serialization in JSON)
- structXML (Internal OSF RDF serialization in XML)
- ironJSON (irON serialization in JSON)
- commON (CSV serialization to be used in spreadsheet applications)
I will show you how you can use
OSF for Drupal to export entire datasets of
Entities, or how to export
Entities individually. You will see how you can configure Drupal such that different users roles get access to these functionalities.
I will also briefly discuss how you can create new converters to support more data formats.
Finally, I will show you how Drupal can be used as a
linked data platform with a feature that makes every Drupal
dereferencable on the Web1. You will see how you can use cURL to export the
Entities‘ descriptions using their URI in one of the 6 supported serialization formats.
