As previously announced I’ve been recently working together with Stéphane Corlosquet on integrating the tools provided by the IKS project to do semantic content enhancements in Drupal as part of the IKS early adopter program. Now, we’ve the pleasure to share some results :-)
Initially, the plan was to use JSON-LD for sending Drupal’s content over to Apache Stanbol, it turned out that Apache Stanbol does not (yet) support JSON-LD when indexing data in its EntityHub component (it does for sending back the text annotation results though). Thus, we used RDF/XML generated by the RDFx module to communicate with Apache Stanbol’s Entityhub. For easy indexing, we created the Search API Stanbol module, which leverages Drupal’s great Search API for that. Together, with an Apache Stanbol install that is pre-configured for Drupal’s use (link) you can get your own Apache Stanbol instance up and running with Drupal in a minute! Checkout scor’s screencast introducing the module!
Check out the demo page yourself over at http://iksdemo.drunomics.com/!
If you are curious, you can also go and grab the new “IKS Content Enhancements Demo” Drupal distribution we created. That way, you can download a pre-configured Drupal with all needed modules to run the demo yourself – now it’s as easy to get started with Drupal and Apache Stanbol as installing Drupal and launching a pre-configured Apache Stanbol instance!
