This component is in active development. It is not ready to be used.

This is a Drupal module that contains the European Commission corporate entity types.

The module uses the RDF SKOS module to provide SKOS modelling for the Publications Office taxonomy vocabularies. These are directly made available in the dependent RDF triple store.

Table of contents:


This depends on the following software:

  • PHP 7.1
  • Virtuoso (or equivalent) triple store which contains the RDF representations of the following Publications Office (OP) vocabularies: Corporate Bodies, Target Audiences, Organisation Types, Resource Types, Eurovoc


Install the package and its dependencies:

composer require openeuropa/oe_content

It is strongly recommended to use the provisioned Docker image for Virtuoso that contains already the OP vocabularies. To do this, add the image to your docker.compose.yml file:

    image: openeuropa/triple-store-dev
    - SPARQL_UPDATE=true
    - DBA_PASSWORD=dba
      - "8890:8890"

Otherwise, make sure you have the triple store instance running and have imported those vocabularies.

Next, if you are using the Task Runner to set up your site, add the runner.yml configuration for connecting to the triple store. Under the drupal key:

    host: "sparql"
    port: "8890"

Still in the runner.yml, add the instruction to create the Drupal settings for connecting to the triple store. Under the drupal.settings.databases key:

      prefix: ""
      host: ${drupal.sparql.host}
      port: ${drupal.sparql.port}
      namespace: 'Drupal\Driver\Database\sparql'
      driver: 'sparql'

Then you can proceed with the regular Task Runner commands for setting up the site.

Otherwise, ensure that in your site's setting.php file you have the connection information to your own triple store instance:

$databases["sparql_default"] = array(
  'default' => array(
    'prefix' => '', 
    'host' => 'your-triple-store-host',
    'port' => '8890',
    'namespace' => 'Drupal\\Driver\\Database\\sparql',
    'driver' => 'sparql'


OpenEuropa Content

If you want to use OpenEuropa Content, enable the module:

drush en oe_content

Development setup


Initial setup

You can build the test site by running the following steps.

  • Install Virtuoso. The easiest way to do this is by using the OpenEuropa Triple store development Docker container which also pre-imports the main Europa vocabularies.

  • Install all the composer dependencies:

composer install
  • Customize build settings by copying runner.yml.dist to runner.yml and changing relevant values, like your database credentials.

This will also symlink the theme in the proper directory within the test site and perform token substitution in test configuration files such as behat.yml.dist.

  • Install test site by running:
./vendor/bin/run drupal:site-install

Your test site will be available at ./build.

Using Docker Compose

Alternatively, you can build a development site using Docker and Docker Compose with the provided configuration.

Docker provides the necessary services and tools such as a web server and a database server to get the site running, regardless of your local host configuration.



By default, Docker Compose reads two files, a docker-compose.yml and an optional docker-compose.override.yml file. By convention, the docker-compose.yml contains your base configuration and it's provided by default. The override file, as its name implies, can contain configuration overrides for existing services or entirely new services. If a service is defined in both files, Docker Compose merges the configurations.

Find more information on Docker Compose extension mechanism on the official Docker Compose documentation.


To start, run:

docker-compose up

It's advised to not daemonize docker-compose so you can turn it off (CTRL+C) quickly when you're done working. However, if you'd like to daemonize it, you have to add the flag -d:

docker-compose up -d


docker-compose exec web composer install
docker-compose exec web ./vendor/bin/run drupal:site-install

Using default configuration, the development site files should be available in the build directory and the development site should be available at:

Running the tests

To run the grumphp checks:

docker-compose exec web ./vendor/bin/grumphp run

To run the phpunit tests:

docker-compose exec web ./vendor/bin/phpunit

To run the behat tests:

docker-compose exec web ./vendor/bin/behat

Working with content

The project ships with the following Task Runner commands to work with content in the RDF store, they require Docker Compose services to be up and running.

Purge all data:

docker-compose exec sparql ./vendor/bin/robo purge

Or, if you can run commands on your host machine:

./vendor/bin/run sparql:purge

Import default data:

docker-compose exec sparql ./vendor/bin/robo import

Or, if you can run commands on your host machine:

./vendor/bin/run sparql:import

Reset all data, i.e. run purge and import:

docker-compose exec sparql ./vendor/bin/robo purge
docker-compose exec sparql ./vendor/bin/robo import

Or, if you can run commands on your host machine:

./vendor/bin/run sparql:reset
