QuiKey is a light-weight tool that can act as an interactive command-line for a semantic knowledge base. It focuses on highest interaction-efficiency to browse, query and author graph-based knowledge bases in a step-by-step manner. It combines ideas of simple interaction techniques like auto-completion, command interpreters and faceted browsing and integrates them to a new interaction concept. Despite its versatility, QuiKey needs very little screen space, which also makes it a candidate for future mobile use.
QuiKey is inspired by Quıcĸsıɩvεʀ.
QuiKey is currently bundled with the iMapping application.
