Microformats Implementations and Implementers

This page lists the applications, plugins, sample code, services, tools that produce or consume microformats as well as companies, developers, and organizations who implement the aforementioned. This is only a partial list. If you know other companies implementing tools for microformats, please add them and list their services/tools and what specific microformats they support.


Implementations vs. Examples in the Wild

This page is only for implementations of tools that publish or consume microformats. Companies simply using microformats on their pages/sites belong in the "Examples in the wild" sections of those respective microformats, e.g.:

Editing This Page

This page is primarily composed of two big lists:

When you find an implementation, first make sure that it is actually an implementation as opposed to just an example in the wild of publishing microformats (see above).

Second, note the name of the tool or service separately from the name of the developer(s) who wrote the tool/service.

Add a third level heading with the name of the tool/service ( === Name of Tool === ) to the Applications / Plugins / Services / Tools section, sorted alphabetically by name of tool/service. Add a top level list item (*) just below the heading with an external link to the tool/service, along with a link to evidence of their support for microformats, and mention (and locally link) each microformat that is supported.

Add a nested list item * by Name of Developer and local hyperlink the Name of Developer to a fragment identifier in this page, e.g. Apple Computer would be linked like this: [[implementations#Apple_Computer|Apple Computer]]

Check to see if there is an entry for the developer in the list of Companies / Developers / Organizations, if not add a third level heading with the name of the developer ( === Name of Developer === ), alphabetically sorted by name of developer. Add a link to the developer's home page followed by "has implemented microformats in:".

In the entry for the developer, add a list item * Name of Tool and local hyperlink the Name of Tool to a fragment identifier in this page, e.g. X2V would be linked like this: [[implementations#X2V|X2V]]

Save the page and make sure that each fragment ID local hyperlink when clicked scrolls you to the right spot (for the developer, and for the tool). Make any fix-up edits as necessary. That's it!

Reporting Bugs

In short, put-it-on-the-wiki. In particular, add bug reports, with URL(s) to a valid demonstrative test case(s) of course, to the listing of an implementation on this page, OR on the specific implementations wiki page (e.g. hcard-implementations). Please describe why you think it is a bug (user interface, cosmetic, violates a spec page, e.g. for problems parsing hCards, reference which part of hcard-parsing the implementation appears to not be following).

If you have a sense of urgency for getting that particular bug fixed in that implementation, you may email microformats-dev with the URL of that implementation on the wiki page, and *summarize* the bug (the full description being on the wiki page instead).


Most microformat specifications have an "implementations" section, e.g.:

In addition, some microformat specifications have separate implementation pages:

Applications / Plugins / Services / Tools

This is an alphabetical listing of all applications, plugins (grouped with their app/tool), services and tools that implement microformats, along with the list of microformats that are supported, and the company and/or developers responsible for it.

As a user, the implementations listed below will automatically help you use microformats and help your data portability and interoperability with other apps and services.

Please help complete this list! If you know of additional apps/plugins/services/tools that support microformats, please add them!

Note: this section is only for listing specific implementations. The list of implementors is in the Companies / Developers / Organizations section below.

This is an alphabetical listing of tools that have been created to validate implementations, and which formats they support.

Please add to this section if you have a validator/checker, no matter which or how many microformats you test for.


Companies / Developers / Organizations

(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:

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.
