Ubiquitiy and Firefox' Microformats-API

It is also possible to use the Firefox Microformats-API directly (with Ubiquity).

Here is a little code snippet:

Components.utils.import("resource://gre/modules/Microformats.js");
CmdUtils.CreateCommand({
  name: "count-hcards",
  execute: function() {
    var doc = Application.activeWindow.activeTab.document;	
    var uFcount = Microformats.count('hCard', doc);
    displayMessage( uFcount );
  }
})
  • TransFormr uses some of the above code to check if certain microformats are present (hCard and hCalendar) before performing a transformation.
