MicrodataPHP Build Status

Microdata is a syntax for embedding machine-readable metadata in HTML.

MicrodataPHP is a PHP library for extracting microdata from HTML documents. It is inspired by MicrodataJS, which is inspired by the native Microdata DOM API.

Example use:

require 'vendor/autoload.php';

use linclark\MicrodataPHP\MicrodataPhp;

$url = 'http://example.com';
$md = new MicrodataPhp($url);
$data = $md->obj();

// Get a property of a top level item.
print $data->items[0]->properties['name'][0];

// Get a property of a nested item.
print $data->items[0]->properties['hiringOrganization'][0]->properties['name'][0];
