Linked Data Views


This is a work in progress and includes research into creating connected web views of Linked Data. It's part of the Fusing Audio and Semantic Technologies (FAST) project, see .

The project uses NodeJS and the Dust templating engine, it interfaces with Fuseki and Mongo databases.

It indexes JSON data (currently only outputs from Annalist, see ) and produces web pages based on that data using reusable templates based on the predicats and objects of an entity.

Minor Parts

Includes a browser based template request system utilising the Dust template engine, see LDView / public / js / templater.js

Includes a node library to interface with Fuseki, see LDView / lib / fuseki.js

Includes a webviews module to open multiple pages in a single page.


If you use docker for mongo and fuseki: sudo docker run -p 3030:3030 --name ldview-fuseki -e ADMIN_PASSWORD=<PASSWORD> -d stain/jena-fuseki sudo docker run --name ldview-mongo -p 27017:27017 -d mongo


You may need to add an executable called "node" before you do npm install if you only have nodejs sudo ln -s /usr/bin/nodejs /usr/bin/node


  1. git clone
  2. npm install
  3. copy config-local-template.js to config-local.js
  4. (create folder temp/json/original and temp/json/adjusted)
  5. node bin/jsonld.jena.loader.js (it may throw some unneeded 404s)
  6. node bin/jsonld.mongo.loader.js
  7. node bin/www
  8. (If you use apache2 you will likely need AllowEncodedSlashes NoDecode adding)
