Restarting Microformats module for Drupal 8

Bangpound allowed me to become a comaintainer on Microformats. I posted my idea here: https://www.drupal.org/node/1002922
If this is designed correctly then other modules will be able to reliably use Microformats in Drupal to drive Hcard / Vcard and Webmentions as well as other possible systems. See also [#2687129] for Vinculum module (trackbacks/pingbacks/webmentions).

Microformats' use in Drupal

Microformats are a format based on the common XHTML. There are a few popular Microformats recommendation (I refuse to call it a standard) specifications, most notable are hCard, XFN, hCalendar and XOXO.

Project proposal: Help resuscitate the Upoming.org module

UPDATE: I've cross-posted this over at Drupal Dojo since there seems to be a few folks interested in collaborating and/or learning about this project.

In checking the status of the Upcoming.org module (http://drupal.org/project/upcomingorg), I noticed some familiar names from our Los Angeles group inquiring and/or offering assistance. Being that we've discussed this type of integration for some projects (ladrupal.org, local/media portal), maybe we can help KarenS resuscitate and expand the scope of this module (integrating additional event/ticketing portals)?

Relationships-categorization system wanted features

"Relationship" I understood as relationships between fields (nodes are many relationships, which are subject of more advanced process).

Wanted features:

  1. Powerful and without limitation thanks to the most abstract (see: "everything is a field", compare this to: Global CCK fields, A controversial(?) point: store translations as nodes).
  2. Build-in categorization features.
  3. Build-in views features (listing fields, not necessary nodes).
  4. Build-in menu features.
  5. Support for Semantic Web/Microformats/similar.

Observations about current situation:

MicroID Module

Hey fellow Microformatters,

I've been working on a small side-element to Microformats in Drupal and it will be ready to commit to the CVS at some point tommorow.

I have created microid.module, which creates a MicroID hash in the user profile.

At the moment, it's a little hard coded. First off all, there is the function that creates the hash:

<?php
function microid_genhash($email, $url)
{
  return
sha1(sha1("mailto:" . trim($email)) . sha1(trim($url)));
}
?>

Now, what I do with this is I get $user->email to generate the email part of the hash, thats fine. But for the profile side, I have specified that there must be a field called profile_homepage. The reason for this is that the URL you want to create the hash with should be your homepage, thats how you will be identified.

The value of distribution profiles

This (somewhat old) post from Zacker does a great job summing up a catch-22 that comes along with an open source community like Drupal (allow me to excerpt):

<

blockquote style="font-style: italic">

  • most of the value created by the Drupal community that vendors and consultants rely on to sell as services to customers come from unpaid core contributions
  • many of the seasoned Drupal core hackers are getting job offers left and right to come and do Drupal consulting full time.
  • This is creating a scenario in which while many more people are paying their bills through Drupal hacking and more and more business are built around business value created by the Drupal community, it is not getting any easier to make sure the heavy lifting on core work is getting done.

What can we do now to make sure that some of the money coming into the community over the next year is put back in to supporting the core work that we as a community are relying on?

Another target for hCards

A module called nodeauthor has recently been brought to my attention and is another module that could do with Microformat support.

From this screenshot you can see it add's a "About Author" at the bottom on a post regarding the node's author.

Protecting against Microformat spam

If you look at This comment on my site, it might look like nothing - but check with Tails, and you find a hidden spam hCard.

It's very easy to produce one and embed it in to a post or comment, which will then be indexed by sites such as Technorati.

So what can we do to stop this type of spam before it starts?

Disucss.

Infact, its' been posted here too:
