The Zotonic data model

Zotonic’s data model can be seen as a pragmatic implementation of the Semantic Web: a mixture between a traditional database and a triple store.

The data model has two main concepts: the resource and the edge.

Resources, in the admin often called pages, are the main data unit: they have properties like title, summary, body text; and, important, they belong to a certain category.

Edges are nothing more than connections between two resources. Each edge is labeled, with a so-called predicate.

This manual describes the data model and its related database table in depth.
