JavaScript Object Notation for Linked Data is lightweight Linked Data format that gives Data Context. JSON-LD is a clean and object based (rather than Triple-based) serialization of RDF and is the best way to reach the world of Web Developers - while keeping advantages of RDF.

Data access uses JSON format mapped to RDF. Data, Graphs and Entities can be modeled in JSON.

Developers should stop thinking in terms of Triple-based UI (which is often the case for Semantic Web Browsers) but in terms of Objects (that can be chain). The JSON-LD model is more adapted to the usual mindset of thinking of things (as real-world Entities) - rather than Triples.

There is a Python implementation of JSON-LD [https://github.com/digitalbazaar/pyld].
