hCalendar Examples in the wild

This page is an informative section of the hCalendar specification.

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

If events on your site are marked up with hCalendar, feel free to add it to the top of this list. Please be sure to include at least one URL of a page on your site that includes actual hCalendar markup. Examples added without the URL of a page with hCalendar markup may be removed.

Want to get started with writing an hCalendar event? Use the hCalendar creator to write up an event and publish it, or follow the hCalendar authoring tips to add hCalendar markup to your page of upcoming events or events you mention in blog posts, wikis, etc.

New Examples

Please add new examples to this section.

Examples with some problems

  • Theatre Studies: European Theatre at the University of Edinburgh uses hCalendar to markup news and events on the index page.
    • Uses "display:none" on image. Andy Mabbett 15:32, 13 Nov 2006 (PST)
  • s'Bokle is a German music pub. Their events calendar has been marked up with hCalendar.
    • improper use of rrule --RyanKing 16:04, 6 Jan 2006 (PST)
  • Plan9 - Uses hCalendar to mark up events !
    • dtstart/dtend are implemented on span element Tom Armitage June 23, 2006
  • socalTECH is a news and information site. Their front page event listing is marked up with hCalendar.
    • dtstart/dtend implemented on span element Tom Armitage June 23, 2006
  • The Multipack features a vevent for the next meeting information.

  • Paul Schreiber's unofficial schedule site publishes hCalendar information for upcoming hockey games at Ice Oasis
    • dtstart/dtend are implemented on td element Tom Armitage June 23, 2006

- whilst Tails parses dtstart/dtend on any element, technically it really needs to be on abbr. Technorati Microformats Search only looks for the title element on <abbr> tags, for instance.
