GenDifS 0.6#

(This site: documentation skeleton for GenDifS 0.6, July 2023)

Genus Proximum, Differentia Specifica (GenDifS) is a language for modeling the T-box of a middleweight ontology in a mindmap.

The instances (the A-box) for an GenDifs can be imported from CSV files. Thus GenDifS can also be understood as a tool to transform CSV files to RDF(S).

For an introduction to GenDifS, see e.g.

GenDifS is still in early development. The current version 0.6 is a functional prototype: The available language elements change, and not even the syntax is stable. Thus the software is not yet openly available. An open source license is intended.
