HTML5 microdata testing tool
To see this tool in action, visit http://krofdrakula.github.com/microdata-tool.
This tool was written to aid in debugging and browsing HTML5 microdata.
To use this tool, simply include the script anywere after the inclusion of the jQuery library. When you view the page, a list will appear in the bottom left listing all the microdata objects detected on the page.
In addition, you need to provide the schemas to validate against; some are already
schemas.js which is to be included immediately after the
jquery.microdata.js script. To add your own, you can use the
$.microdata.addDefinition(url, fields) function as used in
This tool is a work-in-progress and still doesn't adhere to the full specs (yet). Plans to support the full microdata spec + data vocabulary validation are on the drawing board. ;)

Looking for maintainers for this project!
Due to other obligations taking up my time I haven't been as responsive as I would have liked to be, so I've decided to open up this repository to someone willing to maintain it. If you think you can pick up the workload, please contact me.
