GoodRelations - The Web Vocabulary for E-Commerce

This is the archive of the goodrelations dicussion list

GoodRelations is a standardized vocabulary for product, price, and company data that can (1) be embedded into existing static and dynamic Web pages and that (2) can be processed by other computers. This increases the visibility of your products and services in the latest generation of search engines, recommender systems, and other novel applications.

[goodrelations] Powerful XHTML+RDFa templates for GoodRelations

Dear all:

I just released a set of very powerful templates for generating 
GoodRelations data in RDFa and RDF/XML.



Key features:
* Compatible with all Django-style templating engines, e.g.
     - Jinja2 (Python)
     - Django (Python)
     - Google App Engine
     - H2O Template Engine (PHP), http://wiki.github.com/speedmax/h2o-php/
* XHTML 1.0 Strict compatible
* Rich RDFa patterns
* Yahoo Searchmonkey compatible
* LPGL license

The package includes templates for RDF/XML data dump files and 
sitemap.xml with Semantic Sitemap extension support.
This allows developers on any platform with any programming language to 
generate fully-fledged e-commerce data for the Web of Linked Data with 
minimal requirements.

Basically any HTML templating engine will do (with minor modifications, 
in worst case).

I expect that this approach will reduce the entrance barriers for 
mainstream Web developers significantly.

Best wishes

Martin Hepp
