Ripple is a dedicated scripting language for the Semantic Web. Ripple programs not only query the Semantic Web, but also reside within it as RDF data structures, forming a global network of interlinked programs. Ripple is best classified as a relational stack language, closely related to functional stack languages such as Joy, Factor, and Cat. As a Semantic Web interface, Ripple is a fast, text-based linked data crawler and browser with all of the flexibility of a Turing-complete programming language.
