NAME ^

Gedcom::FOAF - Output FOAF files from Gedcom individuals and families

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Gedcom;
    use Gedcom::FOAF;
    
    my $gedcom = Gedcom->new( gedcom_file => 'myfamily.ged' );
    my $i = $gedcom->get_individual( 'Butch Cassidy' );
    
    # print the individual's FOAF
    print $i->as_foaf;
    
    my( $f ) = $i->famc;
    
    # print the individual's family's (as a child) FOAF
    print $f->as_foaf;

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides as_foaf methods to individual and family records. The resulting files can be parsed and crawled (scuttered) by any code that understands the FOAF and RDF specs.

URL TEMPLATES ^

You can supply 3 different url templates.

These templates are used to link between foaf representations of individuals and families, plus provide photo urls for their profiles. The individual and family templates will have an xref param, and the photo template will have a photo param.

    {
        individual => 'http://foo.com/i/{xref}?fmt=foaf',
        family     => 'http://foo.com/f/{xref}?fmt=foaf',
        photo      => 'http://foo.com/static/photos/{photo}',
    }
