Google Summer of Code 2017 Ideas

Revision as of 18:11, 30 January 2017 by (Talk | contribs) (Added project ideas for Eclipse RDF4J)

Project team member and potential mentors, add your content here. The format suggested below is just an idea. Play with the layout, but please don't mess with content provided by other projects. Please be sure to follow branding guidelines (e.g. "Eclipse Dash", not "Dash"). Putting things in alphabetical order seems like a fair thing to do. Links to content hosted elsewhere are fine, but bear in mind that this page will likely be the main point of contact for people who are not already inside your community.

Eclipse Dash

NOTE that this is basically a placeholder to give mentors an idea of how they might format a section of their own. This may actually survive as an idea to present to students, but--by way of expectation management--expect that it will disappear.

Eclipse Dash is a place where the community itself can collaborate on tools for community awareness and collaboration in support of our ultimate objective of committer quality and cooperation. This is very much a research project as we are not entirely sure what these tools will be.

Here are some of our project ideas:

  • Extend the Eclipse Dash Gently Dependency analysis tools to identify the use of third-party JavaScript libraries bug 509617
  • Update the IP cartoons and move them to the handbook bug 498290

Eclipse RDF4J

Eclipse RDF4J is a framework for scalable processing of linked data in RDF. This includes parsing, writing, scalable database storage, reasoning and querying (using the SPARQL query language). RDF4J offers a set of Java libraries as well as a fully-fledged database server and several client UI tools to interact with RDF data. We're a small team who are open to fresh ideas and new contributions. People interested in doing a project with RDF4J are invited to browse through our issue tracker and look for anything marked "help wanted", or to submit their own proposal.

Here are some project ideas:

  • Extend the SPARQL QueryRenderer utility to support more advanced SPARQL 1.1 features (subqueries, aggregates, etc.) #496
  • Extend/replace the SPARQL QueryBuilder to a more user-friendly API and allowing more advanced SPARQL 1.1 features #71
  • Add support for the SHACL (Shapes Constraint Language), a declarative language for specifying data validation constraints on RDF database #743
