When somebody gave me the idea for this I was like, yeah, I’m not going to do a geeky thing like that. But I figured, by this time next year I’ll be studying English and probably quote something Shakespear said, so what the heck.
from pyrdf import RdfStore, RdfResource, RdfType
from rdflib.Namespace import Namespace
NS_P = Namespace(‘http://www.zefhemel.com/ont/person#')
store = RdfStore(NS_P)
Person = RdfType(NS_P[‘Person’])
today = ‘2006–06–22’
print ‘People celebrating their birthdays today:’
for p in store.findResources(rdf_type = Person, birthday = today):
print ‘* %s (%d)’ % (p.name, int(p.age))
There are two important things to note about this. First of all it shows how easy it is to query RDF data using PyRDF. Second of all:
It’s my 23rd birthday today!
Hooray for me!
