Travis Hex.pm

An implementation of the RDF data model in Elixir.

The API documentation can be found here. For a guide and more information about RDF.ex and it's related projects, go to https://rdf-elixir.dev.


  • fully compatible with the RDF 1.1 specification
  • in-memory data structures for RDF descriptions, RDF graphs and RDF datasets
  • basic graph pattern matching against the in-memory data structures with streaming-support
  • execute SPARQL queries against the in-memory data structures via the SPARQL.ex package or against any SPARQL endpoint via the SPARQL.Client package
  • RDF vocabularies as Elixir modules for safe, i.e. compile-time checked and concise usage of IRIs
  • most of the important XML schema datatypes for RDF literals
  • define custom datatypes for RDF literals, incl. as derivations of XSD datatypes via facets
  • sigils for the most common types of nodes, i.e. IRIs, literals, blank nodes and lists
  • a description DSL resembling Turtle in Elixir
  • implementations for the N-Triples, N-Quads and Turtle serialization formats; JSON-LD is implemented in the separate JSON-LD.ex package
  • validate data against ShEx schemas via the ShEx.ex package


There's still much to do for a complete RDF ecosystem for Elixir, which means there are plenty of opportunities for you to contribute. Here are some suggestions:

  • more serialization formats, like RDFa, RDF-XML, N3, CSVW, HDT etc.
  • more XSD datatypes
  • improve documentation
