Re: [EP-tech] JSON-LD , http://schema.org

Thanks, Karl.  I created the pull request and after a discussion with Lizz Jennings, it has been merged to the master branch. The JSON-LD plugin is updated so that in addition to DataSet, it can also convert other EPrints document type’s metadata into schema.org.  I am particularly happy that it can output a graph of results, i.e., multiple items, for example: https://spectrum.library.concordia.ca/cgi/exportview/divisions/dep=5Fapphumansci/2019/JSONLD/dep=5Fapphumansci_2019.js

Thanks again to Lizz Jennings for getting us started on the first version of that JSON-LD plugin for EPrints.

Hi Tomaz,

I suggest opening a pull request. I know the json-ld repository has been largely untouched but its still worth having updates fed in rather then Yet Another obsolete project!

I have been working a lot with JSON format on a different metadata ingest project, which made me have another look at the JSON export that comes with EPrints The default JSON export takes the EPrints XML, and exports all of it out; so we made the default all-metadata-exporting JSON plugin visible to staff only.  The result wasn't structured according to schema.org (https://schema.org/) specification, which would be more useful for indexing by Google and Bing.  So I had a look around, and found the eprintsugrepository: https://github.com/eprintsug/json-ld   Great work!  


I have created a branch https://github.com/eprintsug/json-ld/tree/json-ld-generalized that is more generalized beyond DataSet document type, and now have this working in our repository (https://spectrum.library.concordia.ca).  We are mapping by default to the broad “CreativeWork” type (https://schema.org/CreativeWork), and the more specific types for thesis (https://schema.org/Thesis), dataset (https://schema.org/Dataset), article (https://schema.org/ScholarlyArticle), book_section (https://schema.org/Chapter), and book (https://schema.org/Book).  I also added a function to generate a JSON-LD @graph for the results for browse screens and search results.  


I will be creating a merge request soon to merge this branch into the master branch of the JSON-LD plugin, unless it would make sense to make a fork instead?
