<entry-title>Welcome to the microformats wiki!</entry-title>

microformats are extensions to 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, aggregators, and other tools. See What are microformats? for more.

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

The list of current, stable Microformats open standard specifications.

Drafts

Drafts are newer microformats, which are still making their way through the The microformats process to become specifications. Implementers should be prepared to keep abreast of future developments and changes. Please watch the wiki pages for updates.

  • adr - address location information
  • Geo - latitude & longitude location (WGS84 geographic coordinates)
  • hAtom - blog posts and other date-stamped content
  • hListing - listings for products or services
  • hMedia - media info about images, video, audio
  • hNews - news articles, extension of hAtom
  • hProduct - products
  • hRecipe - cooking+baking recipes
  • hResume - individual resumes and CVs
  • hReview - individual reviews and ratings
  • hReview-aggregate - aggregate reviews and ratings
  • rel author - link to the author's home page (from an article)
  • rel="home" - link to the homepage of a site
  • rel-payment - link to a payment mechanism

If you're tempted to try your hand at writing a microformat please read the process page first!

Exploratory Discussions

Main article: Exploratory Discussions

New: microformats2 has sufficiently stabilized to start using on public web pages and developing parsers and applications.

See: Exploratory Discussions for details of research and analysis of real-world Best Practices for Examples Pages, existing formats, and brainstorming of possible new microformats, per the microformats 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and exploratory discussions which have either lacked (or lost) wide publishing support, implementation, or have been superceded by newer specs (see also when does it make sense to demote a microformat spec).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, Microformats Parsers, microformats validators, test cases, and other information relevant across multiple microformats.

 

Microformats wiki translations

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