Detects rdf annotations embeded in HTML pages and allows to quickly open them with an external viewer
Detects RDFs annotations embedded in HTML pages and allows to quickly open them with an external viewer by clicking on an icon that shows on the address bar. In case there is many RDFs attached to HTML a popup will show allowing to select a particular one to display.
At the moment plugin only scans for <link type="...rdf+xml..."> and based on that detects rdf files.
The viewer that will display RDFs can be configured in the plugins options after installing. By default, the viewer is set to SIOC Browser.
This plugin was by large inspired by Semantic Radar plugin for Firefox. RDF Detective was created to allow similar functionality in Chrome browser.
The basic plugin interface was inspired by RSS Subscription Extension extension.
Update: Added support for RDFa (detecting RDFa specific attributes). Also added experimental support for rendering different types of icons depending of RDFa namespace. To activate see plugin options (its disabled by default).
Note: a similar Chrome plugin exists- RDFView, however RDF Detective proposes a slightly different interface by embedding the notification icon as page action (similar to RSS Extension).
Note2: So far tested only on Mac Os X, Chrome 5.0.342.9 beta
