aRecipe - a mapping of the hRecipe microformat to RDF

Purpose

In some cases people want or need to use an RDF-based solution to add metadata to web pages. RDFa is a standardized way to do so. While it's not as easy to use as microformats it serves certain use cases that microformats can not handle like e.g. when you want to add metadata to certain parts of a page and other metadata to the page as a whole. RDFa is also a straight forward solution for domains which are not covered by a microformat but where a well established RDF vocabulary already exists.

Documentation

aRecipe is a mapping from hRecipe to RDF as thorough and 1:1 as possible. It is part of a bigger effort to map all microformats into one RDF vocabulary, called aMicroformat. But since that is a lot of work and will take some more time the aRecipe part of aMicroformat is a first shot.

The official location of the voacbulary is at http://purl.org/arecipe/. There you'll always find the latest version, currently in two encodings: n3 and RDF/XML. Hopefully soon some documentation will be added as well.

Implementation

aRecipe has been implemented on http://www.essen-und-trinken.de, e.g. here: apple pie (in german, sorry ;-). A convenient way to look at the RDFa is the RDFa Distiller. See below an excerpt of the RDF generated from the apple pie recipe.

Enjoy and leave comments and feedback at the bottom of this page.


The RDF mapping of hRecipe

The original mapping at http://purl.org/arecipe/ additionally contains some more constructs to model the constraints on each element. These constructs are rather involved because the constraints are rather complex and OWL isn't particularily suited to model constraints. Because of that it's not sure if they will be part of the final version.

        <comment>microformats are a way to encode semantic information into (x)html. they define formats that share one common namespace. this piece of work defines a mapping from the hRecipe microformat into RDF by mirroring the  elements of that microformat as straight as possible into an RDF vocabulary.</comment>

Template

Consider using this format (copy and paste this to the end of the list to add your issues; replace ~~~ with an external link if preferred) to report issues or feedback, so that issues can show up in hAtom subscriptions of this issues page. If open issues lack this markup, please add it.

Please post one issue per entry, to make them easier to manage. Avoid combining multiple issues into single reports, as this can confuse or muddle feedback, and puts a burden of separating the discrete issues onto someone else who 1. may not have the time, and 2. may not understand the issue in the same way as the original reporter.

General Questions

open issue! 2009-06-17 raised by BenWard

  • Non-microformat content on µf wiki. I appreciate that the µf wiki is not exclusively used to document microformats (c.f. POSH, social-network-anti-patterns), but it seems to be a new stretch to document RDFa here, especially when RDFa somewhat conflicts with some microformats design principals.
      1. i think you should elaborate on this point. i'm not sure what you are referring at. and please stay as close to aRecipe (the actual point of discussion here) as possible.

Keeping the documentation here seems problematic as:

    1. This is not a community based around RDFa expertise, as such it seems unlikely that you will get thorough feedback
      1. There are people in this community with very good RDFa skills and expertise (much better than mine for sure), well known and respected in both communities, RDF and microformats. yes, it's possible to like and use both.
    2. It dilutes and confuses the normative hRecipe documentation, which is itself unfinished.
      1. no, it thoroughly follows the hrecipe Draft and it explicitly states that it itself is not normative but hRecipe is
    3. The somewhat odd, unverified problem statement (“In some cases people want or need to use an RDF-based solution to add metadata to web pages”
      1. what's odd and unverified here? RDF and RDFa are used in a lot of places and for good reasons. there's nothing special about recipes that makes them useful as microformats (or RDFa) only.

— who has ever asked to publish hRecipe in RDF?

      1. me, for example. do i have to ask first?

Especially given that it's an unstable draft. I don't think there's a strong use case for this that justifies confusing the real spec.

      1. your reference to the "unstability" of the draft seems contrived. it is quite stable, it's used a lot, there are only very few open issues. and it wouldn't matter if it wasn't since aRecipe is also an exercise on how to map microformats to RDFa and the hRecipe draft can only profit from lessons learned here.

side note: i do find it strange and unlucky that a reply to my post on the mailinglist is posted in the wiki without even notifying the list, especially when it goes as far as suggesting to remove this page. since there is not email notification for changes on wiki pages everyone should try to make it as easy as possible to follow discussions. since your criticism is rather profound i think you should post it on the list as a reply to my mail which i precisely posted to the list because i expected some debate. this very page was sitting here for weeks without getting any comment whatsoever but minutes after i pushed it to the list you ask for it's removal. i think that speaks for itself. --ThomasLoertsch 12:50, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

  • hRecipe is a draft and making normative references to it is confusing. It seems unwise to be pursuing an effort to port hRecipe to a different language before the hRecipe vocabulary itself is stable.
      1. you made that point above already. see my reply there--ThomasLoertsch 12:50, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
