TL;DR: We propose a framework for building linked data applications.
Abstract: Application developers, in our experience, tend to hesitate when dealing with linked data technologies. To reduce their initial hurdle and enable rapid prototyping, we propose in this paper a framework for building linked data applications. Our approach especially considers the participation of web developers and non-technical users without much prior knowledge about linked data concepts. Web developers are supported with bidirectional RDF to JSON conversions and suitable CRUD endpoints. Non-technical users can browse websites generated from JSON data by means of a template language. A prototypical open source implementation demonstrates its capabilities.
