LINCD.js implements the rdf.js data model standard.

This means it uses the same names for classes to represent Linked Data.


Linked Data is stored in 'Graphs'. Graphs are formed by connections (edges) between nodes. Each connection is stored as a Quad. The quad stores:

  • the two nodes that are connected
  • the property (edge) they are connected with, which is a node itself
  • the graph that this connection occurs in.

Nodes in the graph come in 3 forms, NamedNodes, BlankNodes and Literals.

You can find the definitions and available methods for each of these classes here.

Soon, more detailed guides will be created for each of these classes.

For now, the best way to get started with the Linked Data possibilities that LINCD.js offers, please see the Linked Data tutorial
