Morph-KGC is an engine that constructs RDF knowledge graphs from heterogeneous data sources with the R2RML and RML mapping languages. Morph-KGC is built on top of pandas and it leverages mapping partitions to significantly reduce execution times and memory consumption for large data sources.

Getting Started 🚀

PyPi is the fastest way to install Morph-KGC:

pip install morph-kgc

We recommend to use virtual environments to install Morph-KGC.

To run the engine via command line you just need to execute the following:

python3 -m morph_kgc config.ini

Check the documentation to see how to generate the configuration INI file. Here you can also see an example INI file.

It is also possible to run Morph-KGC as a library with RDFLib, Oxigraph and Kafka:

import morph_kgc

# generate the triples and load them to an RDFLib graph
g_rdflib = morph_kgc.materialize('/path/to/config.ini')
# work with the RDFLib graph
q_res = g_rdflib.query('SELECT DISTINCT ?classes WHERE { ?s a ?classes }')

# generate the triples and load them to Oxigraph
g_oxigraph = morph_kgc.materialize_oxigraph('/path/to/config.ini')
# work with Oxigraph
q_res = g_oxigraph.query('SELECT DISTINCT ?classes WHERE { ?s a ?classes }')

# the methods above also accept the config as a string
config = """
            mappings: /path/to/mapping/mapping_file.rml.ttl
            db_url: mysql+pymysql://user:password@localhost:3306/db_name
g_rdflib = morph_kgc.materialize(config)
