microformats are HTML for marking up people, organizations, events, locations, blog posts, products, reviews, resumes, recipes etc. Sites use microformats to publish a standard API that is consumed and used by search engines, browsers, and other web sites. See what-are-microformats for more.

Contents

Introduction

Main article: introduction

This wiki is the central resource of the microformats community and provides microformats authoring guides, references, specifications, drafts, publishing patterns, research, brainstorming, and issue tracking.

Get Started

Main article: get-started

Get started with microformats:

How to contribute

Want to join in and contribute?

This wiki has a number of enhancements to assist development and contributions to microformats. Before you start editing, see the wiki introduction page for instructions.

Specifications

microformats2 is stable, has a test suite, publishers, and interoperable implementations. Use it on public web pages and developing more parsers and applications.

Current, stable microformats open standard specifications:

rel microformats

Some microformats require only a rel attribute and are widely supported by consuming sites and software.

Classic Microformats

In addition use well established classic microformats for the primary subject of a page for legacy search engines support.

Drafts

Drafts are classic microformats which have varying degrees of support by consuming applications. They are stable and yet still open to change based on consuming application support, per the process to become specifications.

If you're tempted to try your hand at writing a microformat please read the process page first! and then take a look at exploratory-discussions for details of prior research, analysis of real-world examples, existing formats, and brainstorming of possible new microformats, per the microformats process.

Design Patterns

Design patterns are common uses of markup across microformats.

Archived

Past specifications, drafts, and exploratory discussions which have either lacked (or lost) wide publishing support, implementation, or have been superceded by newer specs (see also when does it make sense to demote a microformat spec). These may eventually be retired, deprecated, or reincorporated into other exploratory discussions.

Examples

Resources

See resources.

User centric development

Shared work areas

Tools, test cases, additional research

The first place to look for examples, code, and test cases is in the pages for each individual microformat. There are only a few cross-cutting tools and services that need to process more than one microformat. That section is intended for editors, parsers, validators, test cases, and other information relevant across multiple microformats.

 

Microformats wiki translations

You may read and edit microformats articles in many other languages:
