Microformat helper

The plugin currently provides helper methods for hAtom, basic hCard, and the datetime design pattern.

  1. Start here, it’s a great introduction to microformats. Or head over to microformats.org.

  2. Install the microformats helper plugin:

    ./script/plugin install http://labnotes.org/svn/public/ruby/railsplugins/microformathelper

  3. Include the helper in your controller:

    helper :microformat

  4. Try it out with an hAtom feed:

    <% render_hfeed do
       posts.each do |post|
        render_hentry "post-#{post.id}" do %>
          <%= hentry_title post.title %>
          <%= hentry_content post.content %>
          Published on <%= post.created_on.microformat :published     %> by
            <%= hcard :fn=>post.author, :url=>post.author_url, :class=>"author" %><%
        end
      end
    end %>
