NAME

RDF::DOAP::Lite - write DOAP data quickly and easily

SYNOPSIS

   use CPAN::Changes;
   use CPAN::Meta;
   use RDF::DOAP::Lite;
   
   my $changes = CPAN::Changes->load('Changes');
   my $meta    = CPAN::Meta->load_file('META.json');
   my $doap    = RDF::DOAP::Lite->new(meta => $meta, changes => $changes);
   
   $doap->doap_ttl('doap.ttl');
   $doap->doap_xml('doap.xml');

DESCRIPTION

This is a small companion module to RDF::DOAP, enabling you to output DOAP data easily from standard CPAN distribution files.

The Straight DOAP

So what is DOAP? This explanation is lifted from Wikipedia.

DOAP (Description of a Project) is an RDF Schema and XML vocabulary to describe software projects, in particular free and open source software.

It was created and initially developed by Edd Dumbill to convey semantic information associated with open source software projects.

It is currently used in the Mozilla Foundation's project page and in several other software repositories, notably the Python Package Index.

Constructor

new(%attributes)

Moose-style constructor (though this module does not use Moose).

Attributes

meta

This is a required attribute; a CPAN::Meta object.

changes

This is an optional attribute; a CPAN::Changes object.

Methods

doap_ttl($file)

Writes DOAP data in the Turtle serialization to the file. The file may be provided as a filename (string) or a file handle.

doap_xml($file)

Writes DOAP data in the RDF/XML serialization to the file. The file may be provided as a filename (string) or a file handle.

BUGS

Please report any bugs to http://rt.cpan.org/Dist/Display.html?Queue=RDF-DOAP-Lite.

SEE ALSO

This module comes with a bundled command-line tool, cpan2doap.

For parsing DOAP data, see RDF::DOAP.

For general RDF processing, use RDF::Trine and RDF::Query.
