CaosDB-Crawler Documentation

This is the documentation for CaosDB-Crawler (previously known as crawler 2.0) the main tool for automatic data insertion into CaosDB.

Its task is to automatically synchronize data found on file systems or in other sources of data with the semantic data model of CaosDB.

More specifically, data that is contained in a hierarchical structure is converted to a data structure that is consistent with a predefined semantic data model.

The hierarchical structure can be for example a file tree. However it can be also something different like the contents of a JSON file or a file tree with JSON files.

This documentation helps you to get started, explains the most important concepts and offers a range of tutorials.
