Installing RDFlib on osX


May 7, 2009

RDFlib is a Python library for working with RDF, a simple yet powerful language for representing information.


Installing it is easier than what you might think. I googled it and it seems that several people had problems (missing components mainly) with  this.. but in my case it was easy-beasy (well you need to have easy-install):

[mac]@ganimede:~/Code/python/_libs/rdflib-2.4.0>sudo easy_install -U "rdflib>=2.4"
Searching for rdflib>=2.4
Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/rdflib/

Best match: rdflib 2.4.1
Processing rdflib-2.4.1-py2.5-macosx-10.5-i386.egg
