X2V is an open source microformats XSLT Microformats Implementations by Brian Suda that parses hCard 1.0 or hCalendar 1.0 events in (X)HTML and transforms them into the corresponding vCard (.vcf) or iCalendar (.ics) file respectively.
The latest beta and development versions of X2V can be tested at:
- version 0.9.7 is the latest version, and it supports:
- hCard 1.0 to vCard specifications
- hCalendar 1.0 to iCalendar RFC 2445
- Value Class Pattern (nearly complete support of dates time separation, see value class pattern date and time tests)
Feature requests and other general feedback. When this section grows to big we can move it to x2v-feedback.
Bugs or other apparent problems. See x2v-issues.
If you want to just use X2V hosted on the web, the following sites are running it:
- H2VX is a transformer service powered by X2V
- http://h2vx.com/vcf/ & http://h2vx.com/ics/
- beta/dev version: http://dev.h2vx.com/vcf/ & http://dev.h2vx.com/ics/
- Status: Up.
- Brian Suda's development page has a running copy, too:
- Status: transformation forms are non-functional currently due to a 2009-09 server move. No ETA on return.
If you wish to run your own X2V converter, either for your own content, or as a general web service, you should fork and customize the H2VX service, which contains all necessary X2V XSLT files, PHP code, as well as H2VX web UI HTML+CSS+JS.
- See H2VX for more.
One inline test moved to: value-dt-test-YYYY-MM-DD--HH-MM, and expanded into a general test case for the Value Class Pattern, one of several value class pattern date and time tests.
The following instances of X2V used to exist but are no longer supported:

- Status: UI is down/404 since recent 2009-10 Technorati redesign - no ETA nor expected return. 2010-11: feeds.technorati.com conversion URLs themselves simple redirect to H2VX. 2012: feeds.technorati.com URLs 404.
If you were using Technorati URLs for conversions, you should switch to H2VX URLs.
