FAST Triple Store
FAST Web Server
FAST JSON Database
The focus of OpO is performance. OpO is not only a fast triple store. It includes a high performance web server and is a high performance JSON database.
Give OpO a try!

OpO does not have to stand alone. There are several open source projects related to OpO.

  • OpO-C is a C client for OpO.
  • Oj is a fast JSON parser for Ruby.
  • OjC is a C version of the Oj JSON parser.
  • Agoo is fast web server as a Ruby gem.

Documentation for the OpO triple store database contains information about the HTTP API while the OpO-C documentation describes the client APIs. OpO use a JSON query language called TQL which provides options not found in other JSON databases.
