'''<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.

==Introduction==
-
This wiki is the central resource of the microformats community. You'll find current versions of published microformat specifications, specification drafts and publishing patterns. The wiki also hosts development resources, such as brainstorming pages for new formats and issue tracking pages for all current and in-development microformats.

To get started with microformats:
+
{{main|get-started}}
-
 
+
Get started with microformats:
-
* First, be familiar writing your pages and applications with semantically rich, descriptive, ‘[[posh|<abbr title="Plain Old Semantic HTML">POSH</abbr>]]’ <abbr title="HyperText Mark-up Language">HTML</abbr>.
+
-
* Learn about microformats from the [http://microformats.org/about/ about page], [http://microformats.org/ blog], [[press]], [[presentations]], [[books]], [[podcasts]], & [[screencasts]] pages.
+
-
* Take a look at established specifications such as [[hcard|hCard]] and [[hcalendar|hCalendar]], and follow the [[hcard-examples|examples]] to start publishing microformats.
+
-
* Have questions? Read the [[faq|frequently asked questions]] and see the [[glossary]] for terms and definitions. You can also post to the {{MicroformatsMailingList}}.
+
-
* Want to learn more in person? Check out microformats [[events]].

==Definition==
+
-
Microformats are small patterns of HTML to represent commonly published things like [[hcard|people]], [[hcalendar|events]], [[hatom|blog posts]], [[hreview|reviews]] and [[rel-tag|tags]] in web pages.
+
-
 
+
-
Microformats enable the publishing of higher fidelity information on the Web; the fastest and simplest way to provide feeds and APIs for the information in your website.[http://www.salereplicawatches.com/replica-tag-heuer-watches Replica Tag Heuer Watches]
+
-
* Read more explanations of [[what-are-microformats|what microformats are]], and [[what-can-you-do-with-microformats|what you can do with them]].
+
* 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>.
-

+
* Mark-up your contact info with [[h-card]], link to other profiles with [[rel-me]]
 +
* Mark-up your blog with [[h-entry]]. See https://indieweb.org/ for more
 +
* Questions? Read the [[faq|frequently asked questions]], ask on [[IRC]]

=== Classic Microformats ===
-
Drafts are newer microformats, for which the specifications haven't been completed yet. Drafts are somewhat mature in the development [[process]] (see [[exploratory-discussions]] for additional efforts that are not as far along in the process). The stability of these documents cannot be guaranteed, and implementers should be prepared to keep abreast of future developments and changes. Please watch the wiki pages for updates.

Current revision


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.

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:

See also other-languages, and how-to-start-a-new-translation.

community

microformats.org is a community focused on using an empirical (rather than aspirational) process to research web data & information human publishing behaviors, openly document it on our wiki (http://microformats.org/wiki/), discuss it in IRC (irc://irc.freenode.net/microformats), then brainstorm ideas & proposals based on that research for simple formats based on HTML to interoperably represent that information on the web, incrementally implement, and iterate.
