All specifications updated

All the specifications (the text descriptions of the data model located in the /doc directory of each daat model) for the different domains and languages (currently French and Spanish besides English) have been updated to the new format. See an example in Spanish and French.

All of them are generated automatically from the json schema (which is the unique source of truth for the data model)

The contribution manual explains further details.

Raise an issue for any point you find in the new format.

 

 

Create automatically the specification of your data model

The new version of the smart data models specification is on progress (most of the /doc directories of the data models have a version). If you want to check how this would look like you can have through this API call

Call: https://smartdatamodels.org/extra/create_spec.php

Parameters: (Mandatories)

  • dataModel: The name of the entity for the specification
  • schemaUrl: The link to the RAW version of the json schema (see example)
  • examplesUrl: the url of where the 4 examples required for a data model are available (named
  • notesUrl: The url to the yaml for the customization paragraphs (notesHeader, after the title, notesMiddle, after properties’ list and notesFooter by the end)
  • mail:  a valid mail of yours

Example: https://smartdatamodels.org/extra/create_spec.php?dataModel=Airport&schemaUrl=https://raw.githubusercontent.com/smart-data-models/incubated/master/Aeronautics/Airport/schema.json&examplesUrl=https://raw.githubusercontent.com/smart-data-models/incubated/master/Aeronautics/Airport/examples/&notesUrl=%22%22&mail=alberto.abella@fiware.org

Output: A markdown text that although the HTML visualization is faulty, the source code of the page can be pasted in any markdown viewer (optimized for github) and you see will see something like this.

We are on the transition to having all the data models compliant.

French translation of data models available

Most of the data models have a new file into its /doc directory name spec_FR.md. It contains a specification generated automatically based on the schema.json with all its texts translated into French. (With the deepL tool, so you can expect some ‘incorrect’ translated elements).

The official spec remains to be the spec.md file. However in coming days, the format, but not the name of this spec will change when the version named spec_EN-US.md will become official and it will replace the contents of spec.md.

Independently of what is happening the official version will always be spec.md.

Other languages, possibly German, Japanese and eventually Chinese are on the queue.

Spanish specification draft available

Most of the data models have a new file into its /doc directory name spec_ES.md. It contains a specification generated automatically based on the schema.json with all its texts translated into Spanish. (With the deepL tool, so you can expect some ‘incorrect’ translated elements.

The official spec remains to be the spec.md file. However in coming days the format, but not the name of this spec will change when the version named spec_EN-US.md will become official and it will replace the contents of spec.md.

Independently of what is happening the official version will be always spec.md.

Draft new specification

There is a new specification (in draft mode) in each directory (most of them) of the data models. It has the name spec_EN-US.md and it is drafting the new specification format for all the data models.

Currently, this format is under design and feedback is welcomed in this form, option feedback on the new specification.
