Pelican plugin for embedding external content using Embed.ly Cards
Embed content within a page or blog post easily, simply by specifying the URL of the target page. Content is automatically recognised, extracted, and formatted as a ‘card’; this may contain a short article preview, embedded video, picture etc.
To preview a card, they can be generated online using Embed.ly. Almost any site is compatible, including YouTube, Flickr, Google+, Maps, Wordpress etc.
Embedly-cards can be installed using pip
$ pip install embedly-cards
or manually from the source code
$ python setup.py install
Once installed, simply add it to your pelicanconf.py configuration file:
PLUGINS = [ # ... 'embedly_cards' ]
If you are planning on embedding content in markdown .md files, you must also add it to the MD_EXTENSIONS options, like so:
from embedly_cards import EmbedlyCardExtension MD_EXTENSIONS = ['codehilite(css_class=highlight)', 'extra', # ... EmbedlyCardExtension()]
If creating the MD_EXTENSIONS variable for the first time, ensure that the Pelican 'codehilite(css_class=highlight)' and 'extra' markdown extensions are included in the list.
For example, to embed a YouTube video in ReStructuredText:
.. embedly-card:: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlfIVEy_YOA
or in markdown:
Or to embed an article/webpage in ReStructuredText:
.. embedly-card:: http://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/5265/cooling-a-cup-of-coffee-with-help-of-a-spoon
or in markdown:
The card-chrome (ReST) or chrome (markdown) option, if provided, specifies whether or not to preserve the border around the card. By default, the border will be removed automatically if Embed.ly supports it; however to force the border to remain, you may pass :card-chrome: 1 (ReST),
.. embedly-card:: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlfIVEy_YOA :card-chrome: 1
or chrome=1 (markdown):
