Microformats Wiki

Welcome to the microformats wiki. There's a lot going on around here, but feel free to jump in and offer your assistance.

But First:

Please read How to Play before making any edits.

Please read The microformats process before proposing any new microformats.

Introduction

What are microformats? See the about page for an overview, and the Introduction to Microformats page for more info. Recent press and presentations are also a good place for some background reading as well.

One popular definition from our mailing list is "simple conventions for embedding semantics in HTML to enable decentralized development." More precisely, microformats can be defined as:

simple conventions
for embedding semantic markup
for a specific problem domain
in human-readable (X)HTML/XML documents, Atom/RSS feeds, and "plain" XML
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

"Or do you just use your browser to browse? That's so 20th century." -- Mark Pilgrim

Specifications

Microformats open standards specifications (see also: Microformats Implementations)

Drafts

Design Patterns

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 read this first!

Exploratory discussions

Focused on real-world Best Practices for Examples Pages to motivate the microformat.

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. This section is intended for editors, parsers, validators, test cases, and other information relevant across multiple microformats.

shared work areas

microformats wiki in other languages

You may read and edit microformats articles in many different languages at least one more language:

microformats wiki languages with over 2 articles

Français (French) (Thanks to neuro`!)

Don't see the language you want? Help translate the microformats wiki into another language!

We're still figuring this out. For now, see the Wikipedia page on Multilingual coordination, and How to start a new Wikipedia for some good general tips and advice, and take a look at which pages have been translated into other languages already for an idea of what pages to translate first.
