Microformats Wiki

Please read How to Play before making any edits.

Please read The microformats process before proposing any new microformats.


What are microformats? And what can you do with them? See the about page for an overview, and the Introduction to Microformats page for more info. Recent press, presentations, microformats podcasts, and screencasts are also a good place for some background reading/listening. Frequently asked questions are answered in the Microformats FAQ. Want something or want to contribute? Help with things To Do. Want to learn more in person? Check out microformats Microformats events.

One popular definition from our mailing list (see also: Mailing Lists) 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


Microformats open standards specifications (see also: Microformats Implementations)


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

Research and analysis of real-world Best Practices for Examples Pages, existing formats, and brainstorming 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.

microformats wiki in other languages

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

microformats wiki languages with over 2 articles

Start a microformats wiki in another language

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, advice, and community conventions.

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 my watchlist feature (use it to watch the pages you've translated for changes).

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 Comment jouer.
