Birth of the Stralo community - a call for action

October 25, 2017 by Bram Biesbrouck

What if we would write a web development framework where every piece of information is annotated semantically, robots and crawlers index your stuff on-the-fly, everything is linked together seamlessly and the whole site talks to the internet to make itself smarter?

Three years ago, me and my colleagues had a foolish idea. Today, we’re open-sourcing the first working version of our idea, together with it’s 50.000 lines of code, waiting for you to comment and be mean about it.

Stralo is built around the central idea that Linked Data systems should become a whole lot easier. By hiding away technical RDF complexities, embedding an AI-engine and introducing a building block system, we believe to have built the most exciting Linked Data platform in years.

But we need your help ‘cause we have big plans and there’s only three of us. We’re dying to hear what other users and developers think about this project so we want you to join us. The docs are still thin, we know - we're working on it - so join our mailing list and we’ll open a direct line.

Stralo is new and this is the introduction to the community. So head over to and get back to us. Good or bad, we want to know what your think.

Oh, and if you find time to spread the word and post/tweet/blog about it, we'll engrave your name on our mantelpiece, that's a promise.

Stralo is now 100% open-source!

It finally happened, we released the entire source code of the Stralo suite as open source. Even the code of this very website is now open source.

Go ahead and take a look at our documentation section for more information on how to get started. Note that the docs are still in the making, but we found time to write a little quickstart-script, so you should be able to get up-and-running quickly.

Many thanks to all people who worked on Stralo over the last few years. Let's foster a little community around the project now and make it bigger and better.

Also thanks to the main project partners who contributed time, funds and beta-testing to the project, you rock.
