# Introduction

SPARQL.ex is an implementation of the SPARQL (opens new window) standards for Elixir. It allows to execute SPARQL queries against RDF.ex data structures.

The implementation of the SPARQL protocol (opens new window) is separated into the SPARQL.Client project. It executes SPARQL queries against any SPARQL 1.0/1.1-compatible endpoint over HTTP and supports result sets in both XML, JSON, CSV and TSV formats, with JSON being the preferred default for content-negotiation purposes. Graph results from CONSTRUCT queries can be read in any serialization format supported by RDF.ex and will be directly deserialized to the respective RDF.ex data structure.
