Dydra.com Software Development Kit (SDK) for Ruby
This is the official command-line client (CLI) and Ruby software development kit (SDK) for Dydra.com, the cloud-hosted RDF & SPARQL database service.
Authenticating with API token
Dydra.authenticate!(:token => api_token)
Enumerating your repositories
account = Dydra::Account.new('jhacker') account.each do |repository| puts repository end
Accessing a repository belonging to your account
account = Dydra::Account.new('jhacker') repository = account['foaf']
Note: the instructions in this README, and the operation of the library itself, implicitly assume a Unix system (Mac OS X, Linux, or *BSD) at present. Patches improving Windows support are most welcome.
The recommended installation method is via RubyGems. To install the latest official release of the SDK and CLI, do:
$ [sudo] gem install dydra
Should you wish to remove the SDK and CLI from your system, do:
$ [sudo] gem uninstall dydra
The first time you run the
dydra command, you'll be asked to authenticate.
When you type in your username and password, your API token will be fetched
and stored in the the
~/.dydra/credentials file in your home directory,
enabling you to bypass the authentication step for future commands.
Specifying the API token
Another way to specify the API token is to set the
variable, which takes precedence over any API token specified in the
~/.dydra/credentials file. This can be handy, for example, when executing
a one-off command against another Dydra account you may have:
$ export DYDRA_TOKEN='R33l6sEnxiExJfOYnZHWs2v06yWd2FUiBZc874vTt6QUSPz96imMf48tqLsz'
Using a SOCKS proxy
The command-line client optionally supports using a SOCKS proxy to
access Dydra.com. To make use of this functionality, install the
Socksify library for Ruby and set the
variable to point to your local SOCKS proxy:
$ [sudo] gem install socksify $ export SOCKS_SERVER='127.0.0.1:1080'
To get a local working copy of the development repository, do:
$ git clone git://github.com/dydra/dydra.git
