Already some time ago, AKSW’s Ali Khalili was releasing an open-source version of the RDFa Content Editor (RDFaCE). RDFaCE is based on the Web HTML Editor TinyMCE and supports different views for semantic content authoring. It uses existing Semantic Web APIs to facilitate the automatic annotation and editing of RDFa content embedded in HTML. All information about RDFaCE can be found at the project page:

http://aksw.org/Projects/RDFaCE

An online demo is available at: http://rdface.aksw.org

An article about RDFaCE was recently accepted for presentation and publication at COMPSAC 2012. The full article is available here. The article now won the COMPSAC 2012 best paper award.

We want to thank Ontos AG (and in particular Daniel Hladky) for their support and contributions to RDFaCE.

RDFaCE: Put a Smile on the Face of Semantic Content Authoring

July 8, 2011 - 8:21 pm by AliKhalili - 2 comments »

We are happy to announce the beta release of RDFaCE (RDFa Content Editor). RDFaCE is an online text editor based on TinyMCE. It supports authoring of RDFa content.

In addition to two classical views for text authoring (WYSIWYG and HTML Source Code view) , RDFaCE  supports two novel views for semantic content authoring namely WYSIWYM (What You See Is What You Mean) and a Triple view (aka. Fact View).

The WYSIWYM displays semantic annotations on top of classical WYSIWYG view which is widely used for Web content creation. It uses dynamic CSS stylesheets to distinguish semantic content from normal content.

The triple view is another semantic view which only shows the facts (i.e. triples) stated in the text. RDFaCE provides a syncronization between these four views so that changes in one view cause respective changes in the other views.

Another important RDFaCE feature is the combining of results from multiple NLP APIs to facilitate the semantic authoring process with automatic annotations. This feature provides an initial set of annotations for users that can be modified and extended later on.

A demo version of RDFaCE is available at http://rdface.aksw.org. To see a short screencast of RDFaCE features, visit here. For more information visit the RDFaCE Project Page.
