Thanks so much for this, we have featured your dataset on our homepage:
What is LDF?
Please allow me to make a technical correction here:
Linked Data Fragments are a uniform view
on _all_ possible interfaces to Linked Data,
not just the light-weight interface that Cristian set up:
- SPARQL endpoints offer Linked Data Fragments;
you can select a part of a dataset corresponding to a specific SPARQL query
- a server of Linked Data documents offers Linked Data Fragments;
you can select a part of a dataset corresponding to a specific subject
What all those interfaces have in common,
is that they offer some part, some fragment, of a dataset;
hence the name “Linked Data Fragments”.
In addition, we have introduced a new kind of interface:
Triple Pattern Fragments, which offer access to parts of a dataset by triple pattern.
This is indeed a very lightweight system for the server,
as you can host live data without much processing resources.
SPARQL queries can be executed on the client side,
as Cristian's client instance shows: http://client.wikidataldf.com/
«a publishing method [for RDF datasets] that
allows efficient offloading of query execution from servers to clients
through a lightweight partitioning strategy. It enables servers to
maintain availability rates as high as any regular HTTP server,
allowing querying to scale reliably to much larger numbers of
So the above definition is about triple pattern fragments,
not Linked Data Fragments interfaces (which include SPARQL endpoints) in general.
Thanks, Cristian, for setting this up!
I hope the Wikidata community finds good use for it.
Finally, live data from Wikidata can be queried with SPARQL :-)
