Part of the feed microformat development effort per the The microformats process.

This page is for documenting Brainstorming proposals based on analysis of real world feed examples and previous feed formats.

previous efforts


In microformats2 simply using a root class name like class="h-feed" on an element that contains all the h-entry elements would be sufficient to create a feed microformat object that can be parsed with all the h-entry elements as children.

root class name: h-feed


<div class="h-feed">
  <div class="h-entry"> ... entry 1 and properties ... </div>
  <div class="h-entry"> ... entry 2 and properties ... </div>

Serves as a way of containing separate sets of related/grouped/sequential h-entry elements on a single page. With HTML ID attributes on the h-feed elements, tools can reference different feeds on the same page and operate on them individually or collectively.

next steps

  • try the brainstorming proposal(s) on real world content and gather experience/feedback from doing so
  • with experience and rough consensus, write-up a simple/minimal h-feed microformats similar and perhaps adjacent to the documentation of the h-entry microformat.
