Introduction

GRDDL (pronounced "griddle") is a mechanism for Gleaning Resource Descriptions from Dialects of Languages. It is a technique for obtaining RDF data from XML documents and in particular XHTML pages. GRDDL transformations can be made for almost any dialect, including microformats.

Issues

Essentially dead

  • As someone who was an early proponent of GRDDL, I'd state that as of 2015-03, it is essentially dead along with any profile-based metadata systems including xmdp. The GRDDL specification relies on the profile attribute which has been deprecated in HTML5. Evidence to that effect: the W3C GRDDL reference service is offline, no attempt has been made to build an alternative that is HTML5-compliant (such as implementing html5-profile). It is probably time to call time of death on GRDDL and profile-uris. —Tom Morris 16:51, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
