Zend Developer Zone:
Microformats, PHP, and hKit
June 29, 2006 @ 06:21:19

On the Zend Developer Zone, there's this new interview with Drew McLellan talking about the newly released version of his hkit toolkit for microformats. Cal Evans got a chance to catch up with him and ask a few questions.

Among the questions he asked were:

  • Start us off by giving us a short primer on exactly what Microformats are.
  • So is there really any difference between a microformat and just a bunch of semantic class names?
  • So does the W3C officially support microformats?
  • Being a developer I'm always curious as to motive. Why did you build hKit?
  • What resources do you recommend to someone just learning about microformats?

Of course, to get the answers to these and many more of the questions Cal asked, you'll have to check out the interview yourself!

Drew McLellan's Blog:
hKit Microformats Toolkit for PHP
June 23, 2006 @ 06:05:37

Drew McLellan has created a set of scripts (a toolkit) to deal specifically with microformats inside of PHP - hKit.

On returning from a very successful @media conference at the weekend, I had the urge to get hacking on some code. In an enviroment such as that created by a tech conference, where you're surrounded by many like-minded individuals who are passionate about the same things you're passionate about, it's hard not to get the bug and be compelled into action.

It quickly became apparent that what should've been a couple of hours coding was going to take me quite a while, because I had no toolkits to back me up. I poked around looking at stuff that's already out there, including Microformats Base, but I couldn't find anything that fitted the model I was after.

He mentions what he was looking for (a simple interface, generic to support multiple formats as packaged in a plugin layer). Unfortunately, he didn't find anything, but fortunately, he created one, hKit.

The package uses SimpleXML and a system of profiles held in the packages for each different format. He mentiontions some of the things that are yet to be done on the toolkit, but he wanted to "post early and post often" to get it out there. As of this post, it's currently in version 0.3.
