Humane OWL (HOWL) is a syntax for RDF and OWL designed for manual editing. By allowing human-readable labels to be used in place of IRIs, and providing convenient syntax for OWL annotations and expressions, HOWL files can be used like source code with tools such as GitHub, then translated into any other RDF or OWL format for use with other tools.
