Example Input:

NamedThing:
  slots:
    - id
    - name

HasAliases:
  mixin: true
  attributes:
    aliases:
      multivalued: true

Person:
  is_a: NamedThing
  mixins:
    - HasAliases
  slots:
    - birth_date
    - age_in_years
    - gender

Command Line#

gen-shacl#

Generate SHACL turtle from a LinkML model

gen-shacl [OPTIONS] YAMLFILE

Use ‘–closed’ to generate closed SHACL shapes. Use ‘–non-closed’ to generate open SHACL shapes.

Default:

True

-s, --suffix <suffix>#

Use –suffix to append given string to SHACL class name (e. g. –suffix Shape: Person becomes PersonShape).

Import mapping file

--log_level <log_level>#

Logging level

Default:

'WARNING'

Options:

CRITICAL | ERROR | WARNING | INFO | DEBUG

-v, --verbose#

Verbosity. Takes precedence over –log_level.

Default:

False
