HTML5 Donation
March 02, 2013 11:27AM


I apologize if there is something new on the HTML5 front with htmlpurifier but everything I have read says it has not been implemented and probably won't be. It seems the current solution is to add custom elements to support at least a subset of the tags, etc.

Would a donation/investment (in other words $) change this? It seems the demand is there, and if this indeed would provide the resources for you to get HTML5 support implemented, I would be willing to lead a fundraiser from interested parties to get what is needed.

Thanks! atDev

It'd probably be better if I organized the fundraiser. But I don't know if there'd be sufficient interest; the task would be maybe be a week of full time work.

We would be happy to donate $50-100 towards this.

Would you go ahead and start the fundraiser then somewhere? Perhaps a kickstarter or giveforward website would be useful. After researching HTML5 in HTMLPurifier we see there is definitely a need for it.

What $ amount would be sufficient?

OK, sorry about dragging my feet; this will probably have to wait until this summer.

Anything I can do to help as far as rounding up donations or did you start a way to donate towards this feature yet?

HTML5 support might be more difficult than this topic implies, especially if you want to protect things like the <canvas> element from being exploited.

If you’re just looking to enable the <article>, <aside>, <nav>, etc. elements, it shouldn’t be all that challenging — although allowing things like wrapping any element or number of elements within an <a> or something might be a little bit larger scope.

Perhaps the most difficult challenge would be the ever-evolving spec. At least with XHTML and HTML 4.01 specs, what’s done is done. In this case, we’re talking about implementing a spec that could change all the time.

How did the fundraiser go? Like many others, I would like to include HTMLPurifier with HTML5 in my site. I could certainly come up with a few hundred $$$ to make this happen.

In the end, I never ended up getting around to setting up a fundraiser; my apologies. :-(

I couldn't agree more.

Fact: The need for HTML5 support is definately (out) there.

Fact: I have no idea how many, but more than a few people would be willing to donate to the cause to get it done.

Please, there must be a way to get it done. It seems to be more about time than money.

I started putting together the tags on github as part of a loading function. Contributions are welcome.

What is the status of this? Is HTML Purifier dying slowly?
