(Considering moving all of these to an implementors page of its own).

Thanks to all of the hardworking developers and innovative companies and organizations for supporting microformats.

This is an alphabetical listing of all companies, developers (by last name) and organizations who have built and shipped at least one implementation (see above for details of each implementation) that users can use.

Please help complete this list! If you have coded support for microformats and don't see your name, add it! If your company supports microformats in its applications, add it!

Note: please add direct links to specific applications, plugins, services, or tools to the list of Applications / Plugins / Services / Tools and then link to those from their implementor with a fragment identifier link, e.g. to link to the "Cork'd" wine review community:

  • [[implementations#Cork'd|Cork'd]]

Similarly, for additional sites, put direct links to them in the Additional Sites section and then link to them from their implementor with a fragment identifier link.
