The Linked Data Stack aims to simplify the deployment and distribution of tools that support the Linked Data life cycle. Moreover, it eases the information flow between components to enhance the end-user experience while harmonising the look and feel. It comprises a number of tools for managing the life-cycle of Linked Data. At the moment it consists of two software repositories for distributing Linked Data Software components to the developer communities: 1.) A Debian repository that provides installers of components where users can directly install them on Linux servers using the standard packaging tools. 2.) And a Maven repository for managing binary software components used for developing, deploying and provisioning.
The Linked Data Stack has been the result of the LOD2 EU project efforts, and now the GeoKnow team has officially became the manager of the Linked Data Stack. This announcement took place in the 10th International Conference on Semantic Systems held the 4th and 5th of September 2014 in Leipzig.
If you are a Linked Data User, visit the Linked Data Stack where you can find instructions on how to install and use the demonstrations and documentation for installing specific components. If you want to contribute to the stack with your software, you can find also guidelines how to contribute.
