Redfoot is a Python-based framework for distributed Resource Description
Framework (RDF) applications written by James Tauber and Daniel Krech.
Redfoot offers an RDF parser and serializer, a Hypertext Transfer Protocol
(HTTP) server that provides a Web interface for editing/viewing/importing RDF, a
query Application Programming Interface (API) for RDF with many high level query
functions, a customizable User Interface (UI) and the ability to perform Peer-to-Peer (P2P) RDF data exchanges.
Future development plans include major expansion of the P2P architecture so
Redfoot applications have a robust environment for discovery of RDF statements
on peers, an inference engine, example applications built upon Redfoot, and
connectors that map non-RDF data to RDF triples.
Redfoot is distributed under a Berkeley Software/Standard Distribution (BSD)
