Making Deniz a single-file-app

Following up to the previous post, Deniz, the RDF browser written in HTML, Javascript & CSS, can now be distributed as one single file.

This is possible due do

The last step missing was the image embedding part which is nicely solved through https://github.com/nzakas/cssembed. In addition Deniz will now go through the Google Closure Javascript compiler and Yahoo’s YUI Compressor for CSS to save bandwidth.

Thanks to the Makefile by Benjamin Lupton (https://github.com/balupton/jquery-sparkle/blob/master/Makefile) it was easy to set the process up for Deniz.

Two steps will build the file:

$ make build-update

to download JAR dependencies, and

$ make

to finally minimize and integrate all contents.

That’s it.

  1. Yes :). It works quite nice! I’ve noticed that too regarding DBPedia, but we will use our own LOD Virtuoso instance.
