When working with Resource Description Framework (RDF) data, having a good editor can make a big difference in your productivity and the quality of your work. There are several RDF editors available, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. In this blog post, we'll take a look at some of the RDF editors and compare them to determine which one is the best.
1. LinkedData extension for Sublime Text
Complete high-res syntaxes for SPARQL 1.1, Turtle, TriG, N-Triples, N-Quads, Notation3 and ShExC
2. dotNetRDF rdfEditor
A GUI tool designed as a Notepad replacement for editing RDF and SPARQL
3. RDF extension for Vim
A bundle of vimfiles for editing RDF data (syntaxes, completion, etc.)
4. Stardog RDF Grammars for Visual Studio Code
Syntax highlighting for SPARQL, Turtle, Stardog Rules Syntax, and other RDF languages
5. RDFox Syntax Highlighting for Visual Studio Code
SPARQL, Turtle, TriG, N-Triples, N-Quads, Datalog rules and RDFox shell script syntax highlighting
6. RDF and SPARQL for JetBrains IDEs
Helps you to be productive with RDF, SPARQL and ShEx in your JetBrains IDEs
- It provides completion suggestions based on prefix.cc, and users can configure their own prefix declarations through the IDE settings.
- The plugin enables the download of an ontology to index it locally, allowing for completion suggestions for prefixed names. For instance, typing a prefix label and pressing Ctrl+Space reveals all classes and properties defined in the ontology.
- Quick documentation for classes and properties from locally indexed ontologies is also available.
- In cases when an ontology is not indexed locally, the plugin uses the Linked Open Vocabularies API to provide completion suggestions.
- Syntax highlighting, validation and code formatting for all the supported syntaxes.
- Integration with the SPARQL Graph HTTP Protocol to upload RDF files to a compatible database.
