Using Faceted Search

RDFox v3.1.0 introduced the ability to serve extensions to built-in functionality.
On loading, choose a datastore
To subsequently switch to a different datastore, click on the "Options".

Faceted Search Interface

Apply filters throughout the hierarchy of properties and objects.

Filter values are via check-boxes, slider or date range picker

Range elements are only shown if there are three or more values.

Faceted Search Queries

Range limits are derived from the values in the loaded data.

Once a selection is made, a SPARQL query is issued to RDFox and the results are displayed.

To view the query in the RDFox console, click on the “SPARQL” link above the results.


1. RDFox v3.1.0 or later installation is required.
2. Download the extension zip, and unzip it.
3. Place the resulting directory (called "fsearch") into a directory named "console-extensions" in an RDFox server directory.
4. The Faceted Search directory name should not be changed from "fsearch" to a different value.
5. Once the RDFox server is started, and the endpoint started, Faceted Search is available at the /console-extensions/fsearch/ path.
