Why Iframely over Embedly?
The "official" embedded card solution for NodeBB appears to be Iframely.
My question is why was this chosen over Embedly?
I'm asking because after 1, yes 1 day of use, I'm at 13k hits on the API. So my monthly is looking in the ballpark of 400k API hits, which is $291/month.
Anyway, I was just wondering if I'm missing something about Iframely.
Maybe because there is an open source version of their service that you can run for "free"? That might work.
Yes, you can self-host iframely.

Also there is nothing preventing someone to build a embedly plugin
@baris Yeah, I know.
@PitaJ Does the plugin work with the self hosted version?
@djensen47 as far as I know, yes. If it doesn't, we'll fix it. Just open an issue and let us know.
