URF

Uniform Resource Framework

Elegant, simple, flexible data representation framework.

The Uniform Resource Framework (URF) is a semantic framework for storing data—independent of any serialization syntax—complete with diverse, interchangeable data formats.

Simple, Consistent Data Model

Easier than RDF!

Resource property value.

A simpler RDF, a richer JSON, a modern CSV, a readable Turtle—all with a pervasive elegance.


Diverse Formats, Uniform Data

All formats represent identical URF data models!

SURF
A simple, rich, readable replacement for JSON.
TURF
A SURF superset long-term data storage and ontology definitions; a sane analog of Turtle.
CURF
CSV-like files with the rigor and data types of URF, and the readability of TURF.
3URF
Graph representation of subject, property, value statements; elegant analog of N-Triples with TURF syntax.
