Wikidata:WikiProject ShEx

A WikidataCon 2017 session on Shape Expressions (ShEx)

ShEx (Q29377880) is a concise, formal modeling and validation language for RDF structures. ShEx can be used to define shapes within the RDF graph. In the case of Wikidata, this would be sets of properties, qualifiers and references that describe the domain being modeled. Subsets of the Wikidata graph can be tested to see whether or not they conform to a specific shape through the use of validation tools. ShEx constraints can be atomic triple constraints or boolean combinations of such constraints.
