Please start with the introduction page and read how-to-play before making any edits.

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:

Also, this wiki has a number of neat enhancements to assist development and contributions to microformats. Before you start editing, see the wiki introduction page for instructions.

Definition

Microformats are small patterns of HTML to represent commonly published things like people, events, blog posts, reviews and 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.

How to contribute

Do you want to help take microformats to the next level? You can:

Specifications

The list of current, stable Microformats open standard specifications.

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

Drafts

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.

Design Patterns

Design patterns are common uses of markup across microformats.

Exploratory Discussions

See: exploratory-discussions for details of research and analysis of real-world examples, existing formats, and brainstorming of possible new microformats, per the microformats process.

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:
