02:07 pm - Other sources of FOAF?

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Last night I wrote an Objective C parser for FOAF, based on LJ's FOAF feeds. Does anyone know other sites that publish FOAF so that I can test my code with general feeds?

PLINK aggregates FOAF files from all over the Internet, and provides links back to those files. Ecademy and my own project SongBuddy both publish FOAF, an example of the latter can be seen at http://www.songbuddy.com/lc/users/foaf/george

http://www.rdfweb.org/topic/DataSources is one of the best places to look for that.

I think that you're going to find that your tool is very LJ oriented, looking at your screenshot, but it still looks very nice.

Will this compile in Linux? (If you're not sure, would you like me to try? :))

Oh yes, it surely is since I used LJ feeds as a guide to what to look for. Ultimately, I'm doing this for inclusion in Xjournal, but I thought I might try and make it broader.

No, I don't think so. It depends on a lot of Mac OS X APIs, particularly CFXMLParser.

Can I steal your code? I've just bought a power book, and I'd like to use your FOAF parsing code to create a graphical FOAF editor. (So people can enter a URL, such as their LJ one, and get information that they can edit to fill in more completely.)

I'd be willing to adhere to any license you'd want to put on it, I'd just like to use it as a learning jumping point - I've never written anything in Cocoa/Obj C before this morning.

Sweet. You may want to see what you can do about picking some of the more populated FOAFs out there. Mine for instance ;)

Should give you a bunch of things to play with and program for.

Also, check this out for others FOAFs:
