Today is the 10th anniversary of microformats.org.
Great progress in 6+ years of #microformats2:
In particular an increasingly detailed generic vocabulary-independent parsing specification: microformats.org/wiki/microformats2-parsing
The parsing spec is stable, and yet living and updated via:
* explicit documentation of issues and brainstorms on the wiki
* consensus among parser developers
* updated when proven with running code
* backed with open test cases in a test suite
The number of open source parsers across a variety of languages continues to increase, the latest being a Go parser and an early-stage Java parser:
microformats vocabularies such as h-entry continue to also evolve based on minimal proposals to address real-world use-cases, evaluated with personal publishing experience across mutiple sites, confirmed by consuming code demonstrating live use-case functionality.
Year 10 has been perhaps the most pragmatically focused yet, and beyond progress on microformats specifications, we have continued to iterate the methodologies and processes that keep microformats simpler and focused on solving the real-world needs of the open web, setting an example for a minimum viable web platform.
