'''Please read [[how-to-play]] before making any edits.'''
+
'''<dfn>microformats</dfn>''' are HTML for marking up [[h-card|people, organizations]], [[h-event|events]], [[h-adr|locations]], [[h-entry|blog posts]], [[h-product|products]], [[h-review|reviews]], [[h-resume|resumes]], [[h-recipe|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.
-
'''Please read [[process]] before proposing any new microformats.'''
+
* See '''[[microformats2]]''' for a technical overview and summary of how to use microformats on public web pages and for APIs.

== Introduction ==
+
==Introduction==
 +
{{main|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.
-
What are microformats? See the [http://microformats.org/about/ about page] for an overview, and the [[introduction]] page for more info.  Recent [[press]] and [[presentations]] are also a good place for some background reading as well. Frequently asked questions are answered in the [[faq]].
+
== Get Started==
 +
{{main|get-started}}
 +
Get started with microformats:
-
One popular definition from our [http://microformats.org/discuss/ mailing list] is "simple conventions for embedding semantics in HTML to enable decentralized development." More precisely, microformats can be defined as:
+
* Make sure your pages and web apps use proper ‘[[posh|<abbr title="Plain Old Semantic HTML">POSH</abbr>]]’ <abbr title="HyperText Mark-up Language">HTML</abbr>.
-
:simple conventions
+
* Mark-up your contact info with [[h-card]], link to other profiles with [[rel-me]]
-
:for embedding semantic markup
+
* Mark-up your blog with [[h-entry]]. See https://indieweb.org/ for more
-
::for a specific problem domain
+
* Questions? Read the [[faq|frequently asked questions]], ask on [[IRC]]
-
:in human-readable (X)HTML/XML documents, Atom/RSS feeds, and "plain" XML
+
* Want to learn more in person? Check out microformats [[events]]
-
::that normalize existing content usage patterns
+
-
::using brief, descriptive class names
+
-
::often based on existing interoperable standards
+
-
:to enable decentralized development

-
::of resources, tools, and services

== Design Patterns ==
+
== Specifications ==
 +
'''[[microformats2]]''' is stable, has a test suite, publishers, and interoperable implementations. Use it on public web pages and developing more parsers and applications.
-
Design patterns give microformat authors a vocabulary for expressing their ideas consistently with what has already been done. ''If you're tempted to try your hand at writing a microformat '''[[process|read this first]]'''!''
+
Current, stable microformats open standard specifications:
 +
* [[h-adr]]
 +
* [[h-card]]
 +
* [[h-entry]]
 +
* [[h-event]]
 +
* [[h-feed]]
 +
* [[h-geo]]
 +
* [[h-item]]
 +
* [[h-listing]]
 +
* [[h-product]]
 +
* [[h-recipe]]
 +
* [[h-resume]]
 +
* [[h-review]]
 +
* [[h-review-aggregate]]
-
* [[abbr-design-pattern]]
+
=== rel microformats ===
-
* [[class-design-pattern]]
+
Some microformats require only a rel attribute and are widely supported by consuming sites and software.
-
* [[datetime-design-pattern]]
+
* [[rel-author]] - link to the author's home page (from an article)
-
* [[existing-classes|class names defined across all microformats]]
+
* [[rel-enclosure]] - link to attachments (e.g. files) to download and cache
-
* [[include-pattern]] {{NewMarker}}
+
* [[rel-license]] - licensed content
-
* [[rel-design-pattern]]
+
* [[rel-nofollow]] - links in untrusted 3rd party content
 +
* [[rel-tag]] - tag posts and pages by subject
 +
* [[XFN]] - social relationships and [[rel-me]] links among profiles for the same person
-
== Exploratory discussions ==
+
=== Classic Microformats ===
-
Research and analysis of real-world [[examples]], existing formats, and brainstorming to motivate the microformat.
+
In addition use well established classic microformats for the primary subject of a page for legacy [[search engines]] support.

== Tools & Test Cases & Additional Research ==
+
=== 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.
-
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. This section is intended for editors, parsers, validators, test cases, and other information relevant across multiple microformats.

== microformats wiki in other languages ==
+
''If you're tempted to try your hand at writing a microformat please read '''[[process|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]].
-
You may read and edit microformats articles in <del>many different</del> other languages
+
== Design Patterns ==
 +
{{design_patterns}} <!-- this can be edited in /wiki/Template:design_patterns -->
-
=== microformats wiki languages with over 2 articles ===
+
== 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 [[process#related_issues_questions_regarding_document_stages|when does it make sense to demote a microformat spec]]). These may eventually be retired, deprecated, or reincorporated into other exploratory discussions.

You may want to start with the list of [[stable-pages]], which are pages that are relatively stable, and have only minimal/editorial changes, which makes them much easier to keep in sync with the English versions, by using the [[Special:Watchlist|my watchlist]] feature (use it to watch the pages you've translated for changes).
+
== 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|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.
-
Page naming: for the translated version of a page, use the same name for the page, and simply add the RFC 3066 language identifier code as a dash suffix. E.g. for the French version, [[Main_Page]] becomes [[Main_Page-fr]], and [[how-to-play]] becomes [[how-to-play-fr]].
