With this screencast, you will see how you can update all the pieces that compose the Open Semantic Framework (OSF) stack. You will discover all the tools that are available to you to update the different programs. You will be able to update the following applications with the latest release or development code:
Here is the list of commands that have been run in this screencast:
[cc lang=’bash’ line_numbers=’false’]
; Upgrade Ubuntu
; Upgrade the OSF Installer script
chmod 755 upgrade.sh
; Upgrade the OSF Web Services PHP API
; Upgrade the OSF
; Upgrade the Datasets Management Tool
; Upgrade the Ontologies Management Tool
; Upgrade the Permissions Management Tool
; Upgrade OSF for Drupal
drush dl osf-7.x-3.x-dev -y
drush cc all
; Upgrade to a specific version of Drupal
drush pm-update projects drupal-7.26
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 Web. You will see how you can use cURL to export the
Entities‘ descriptions using their URI in one of the 6 supported serialization formats.
This screencast will quickly introduce you to ontologies, and will explain you what are their rules in the Open Semantic Framework (OSF).
You will see how you can manage ontologies in OSF using the OSF for Drupal web interface. You will be able to import, create, update, delete and export ontologies. You will see how you can search within imported ontologies, how you can manage their permissions.
Finally you will see how you can manage the ontologies themselves: how you can create, update and delete classes, properties and named individuals using the Web user interface.
In this screencast, you will discover how you can use the OSF for Drupal user interface to browse, filter and search for
Resource entities that have been indexed in Open Semantic Framework (OSF) datasets. You will see how you can use it to manage what you want to expose on your Drupal portal.
Then you will see how you can create, update, delete and export
Resource entities using Drupal.
Finally you will discover the revisioning system, and the revisioning user interface that is available to the Drupal administrators.
This screencast introduces you to another one of the most important
OSF for Drupal connector: the OSF FieldStorage module. What this module does is to create a new
FieldStorage type for Drupal7. It enables Drupal7 to save the values of its
Content Types fields into another storage system than the default one (i.e MySQL in most of the cases).
Because of the way that the
Field system has been designed in
Drupal7, it is possible to save the values of different fields that compose the same
Content Type bundle into different field storage system. For example, if your
Content Type bundle is composed of 10 fields, then 4 of them could be saved into MySQL and 6 of them into
The main purpose of the OSF FieldStorage module is to be able to save Drupal local
Content Type information into OSF. What that means is that all your Drupal7 local content then become accessible, manageable and manipulatable using the 27 Open Semantic Framework (OSF) web services endpoints. Your local Drupal content can then be shared with other Drupal instances that could use
OSF for Drupal to connect to that same OSF instance and seamlessly republish/re-purpose that local content from the other Drupal portal.
Here is the documentation of the architecture of this connector module.
This is the power of the OSF FieldStorage connector module. It supports the following Drupal features:
- Full FieldStorage API
- Entities caching
- 29 field widgets
- Export feature in 6 formats
In this screencast, you will be introduced to Drupal7’s Field system. Then you will see how the OSF FieldStorage module creates a new FieldStorage type for Drupal7 and how it can be used. Then you will see how to configure the OSF FieldStorage module: to creating new Content Type fields that uses this
osf_fieldstorage type, how to map these fields to
RDF, how to use one of the 29 supported field widgets, etc.
Finally, you will see how you can synchronize existing Content Type pages (that was created before
OSF for Drupal was installed on your Drupal instance) into a OSF instance.
