hCard Examples in the wild

Contents


This page is an informative section of the hCard specification.

The following sites have published hCards, and thus are a great place to start for anyone looking for examples "in the wild" to try parsing, indexing, organizing etc.

If people or organizations on your site are marked up with hCard (even just your own contact information), feel free to add it to the top of this list. Please be sure to include at least one URL to a page on your site that includes actual hCard markup. Examples added without a URL to a page with hCard markup may be removed.

Want to get started with writing an hCard? Use the hCard creator to write up some contact information and publish it, or follow the hCard authoring tips to add hCard markup to your current contact page.

Buttons

You can use these buttons on pages with hCards. See buttons#hCard for any recent additions.

Examples To Act On

New Examples

Please add new examples to the top of this section so they can be reviewed! Please check back after a few days, to see if anyone has found any problems with the examples supplied.

Examples with some problems

See hcard-examples-in-wild-with-problems

Reviewed Examples

Reviewed New Examples which are fine can be moved here to indicate that they've been reviewed. Or take the next step and note which type of example in the wild each of these are, and then please move them to the "Grouped Examples" sectionl

Grouped Examples

This section organizes examples into several rough categories as follows. If an example fits in more than one cateogry, use the *last* matching category in this list that matches the specific hCard example(s) in the wild that you are trying to categorize.

  1. Individuals - one card per person, perhaps sort alphabetically by "family-name". People with their own hCards (typically) on their own site.
  2. Organizations - one card per organization, alphabetical by "fn". Organizations with their own hCard(s) (typically) on their own site.
  3. Institutions - which list more than one person, with a count estimating the # of hCards, e.g. 40k for Avon. Also indicate complexity of information supplied, eg. just name+number vs. complete details. Alphabetically sorted by "org" with perhaps a few individuals listed in a single sub-bullet, comma delimited, sorted by "family-name".
  4. Group Blogs - blogs with multiple authors marked up with hCard
  5. Online Profiles - which host profiles for more than one person, with a count estimating the # of hCards, e.g. 10m+ for Flickr.com. Alphabetically sorted by "fn" with perhaps a few individuals listed in a single sub-bullet, comma delimited, sorted by "family-name".
  6. Online Venues - which provide listings for businesses or organizations, with a count estimating the # of venues, e.g. ~10k for Upcoming.org. Alphabetically sorted by service/site name, with perhaps a few specific venues listed in a single sub-bullet, comma delimited, sorted by "fn".
  7. Speakers Listings - event sites' speakers pages where the speakers are marked up with hCard. Sort by date, sub-grouped by year. Most recent first. Perhaps a few individuals listed in a single sub-bullet each event, comma delimited, sorted by "family-name".

In addition there is a separate "UTF8 Examples" section that can be used to put another link to any hCard examples in the wild which exercise various non-ASCII7 / non-english characters for various property values.

As each section itself become quite large (we might be there already, once we sort through the above "Reviewed Examples"), it will probably be moved to a separate page, leaving its heading here in place, and replacing its contents here with a link to the separate page and perhaps a stats summary.

Speakers Listings

2007

to-do: check 2007 presentations as they likely contain links to conferences that marked up their speakers page(s) with hCard.

2006

to-do: check 2006 presentations as they likely contain links to conferences that marked up their speakers page(s) with hCard.

2005

to-do: check 2005 presentations as they likely contain links to conferences that marked up their speakers page(s) with hCard.

UTF8 Examples

These examples all contain one or more characters in UTF8 that are outside the ASCII7 range and make for excellent test cases to make sure you are handling UTF8 properly throughout your hCard parsing and transforming. And especially if you are generating vCards, these test cases will help you make sure you are generating UTF8 vCards in such a way that can be recognized by UTF8 supporting vCard applications. Sorted roughly alphabetically (per Unicode).

nickname only

These UTF8 examples only have UTF8 for the "nickname" property and are thus are a bit easier for testing than the previous examples.

Non-HTML examples

Related Pages

The hCard specification is a work in progress. As additional aspects are discussed, understood, and written, they will be added. These thoughts, issues, and questions are kept in separate pages.
