Implementation of the HTML5 Microdata specification

Example

var img = document.createElement("img");
img.itemProp = "test";
img.src = "http://example.org/example.jpg";
img.itemValue == img.src;//True

var div = document.createElement("div");
div.appendChild(p);
div.itemScope = true;
div.innerHTML = "<div><span><p itemprop=test>some test</p></span></div>";
div.properties["test"][0].itemValue;//"some test"

More examples in example folder

Microdata JS API

  • Element.itemValue
  • Element.itemProp
  • Element.itemScope
  • Element.itemId
  • Element.itemType
  • Element.itemRef
  • Element.properties
  • window.microdata_liveProperties = true - for auto update Element.properties value false (default) - for cached Element.properties value

Install

<script src="a.js"></script>
  1. When add microdata script
<script src="microdata-js.js"></script>
  • For IE8+ support:
    1. Add ES5 and DOM shim and microdata script as:
<!--[if IE 8]>
<script src="a.ie8.js"></script>
<![endif]-->
<script src="a.js"></script>
<script src="microdata-js.js"></script>

EXTRAs

TODO::

Features

  • Live "properties" property (turn it on manualy window.microdata_liveProperties = true)
  • Implementation of PropertyNodeList and HTMLPropertiesCollection prototypes
  • Extending DocumentFragment.prototype with getItems function
  • Extending PropertyNodeList and HTMLPropertiesCollection prototypes with toJSON functions
  • Inherit native PropertyNodeList and HTMLPropertiesCollection prototypes from Array

  • Opera < 12, Google Chrome, Safary, FireFox, IE8 and maybe others

Tests

tests/Microdata_tests_files/Microdata_tests.html based on Opera microdata tests

LIMITATION

  1. Require window.DOMStringCollection (DOMSettableTokenList like object) (created by https://github.com/termi/ES5-DOM-SHIM/)
  2. Opera >= 11.60:
    • PropertyNodeList.values, PropertyNodeList.toJSON and HTMLPropertiesCollection.toJSON propertys will be available only after window.onload event

TODO

  1. Live HTMLElement.prototype without window.microdata_liveProperties option
  2. Delete code adding "values" property if it not compliance with FINALE Microdata specification
  3. FireFox bug $0.itemId = "" -> $0.itemId != ""
