rdflib.tools package


rdflib.tools.chunk_serializer module

This file provides a single function serialize_in_chunks() which can serialize a Graph into a number of NT files with a maximum number of triples or maximum file size.

There is an option to preserve any prefixes declared for the original graph in the first file, which will be a Turtle file.

rdflib.tools.chunk_serializer.serialize_in_chunks(g, max_triples=10000, max_file_size_kb=None, file_name_stem='chunk', output_dir=None, write_prefixes=False)[source]

Serializes a given Graph into a series of n-triples with a given length.

  • g (Graph) – The graph to serialize.

  • max_file_size_kb (Optional[int]) – Maximum size per NT file in kB (1,000 bytes) Equivalent to ~6,000 triples, depending on Literal sizes.

  • max_triples (int) –

    Maximum size per NT file in triples Equivalent to lines in file.

    If both this parameter and max_file_size_kb are set, max_file_size_kb will be used.

  • file_name_stem (str) – Prefix of each file name. e.g. “chunk” = chunk_000001.nt, chunk_000002.nt…

  • output_dir (Optional[Path]) – The directory you want the files to be written to.

  • write_prefixes (bool) – The first file created is a Turtle file containing original graph prefixes.

Return type:


See ../test/test_tools/test_chunk_serializer.py for examples of this in use.

rdflib.tools.graphisomorphism module

A commandline tool for testing if RDF graphs are isomorpic, i.e. equal if BNode labels are ignored.

class rdflib.tools.graphisomorphism.IsomorphicTestableGraph(**kargs)[source]

Bases: Graph

Ported from: http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/DataAccess/proto-tests/tools/rdfdiff.py (Sean B Palmer’s RDF Graph Isomorphism Tester)


Graph isomorphism testing.

__hash__ = None
__module__ = 'rdflib.tools.graphisomorphism'

Negative graph isomorphism testing.


This is defined instead of __hash__ to avoid a circular recursion scenario with the Memory store for rdflib which requires a hash lookup in order to return a generator of triples

vhash(term, done=False)[source]
vhashtriple(triple, term, done)[source]
vhashtriples(term, done)[source]

rdflib.tools.rdf2dot module

A commandline tool for drawing RDF graphs in Graphviz DOT format

You can draw the graph of an RDF file directly:

rdflib.tools.rdf2dot.rdf2dot(g, stream, opts={})[source]

Convert the RDF graph to DOT writes the dot output to the stream

rdflib.tools.rdfpipe module

A commandline tool for parsing RDF in different formats and serializing the resulting graph to a chosen format.

rdflib.tools.rdfpipe.parse_and_serialize(input_files, input_format, guess, outfile, output_format, ns_bindings, store_conn='', store_type=None)[source]

rdflib.tools.rdfs2dot module

A commandline tool for drawing RDFS Class diagrams in Graphviz DOT format

You can draw the graph of an RDFS file directly:

rdflib.tools.rdfs2dot.rdfs2dot(g, stream, opts={})[source]

Convert the RDFS schema in a graph writes the dot output to the stream
