Updating ( refresh ) embedly plugin on page display


  • Thank you. I have applied the change in the plugin file. Restarted the website. I am not sure if it is 'the fix'. I have noticed a performance difference when rendering the embedly ( taking more time ).... but it is still fickle of when it decides to render. A page refresh will still not fire a call for rendering. What is strange is that if one is not rendering... then 'all' the embedly's don't render. Ex... on the front page... none render, I click on the 'read more' of a non-rendering page. The article comes up... the embedly renders, then all the embedly's render everywhere ( including the front page ones.

    I am running nodebb 0.7.0
    Fireox

    Thank you for your time...


  • A little more insight into this issue......

    A post on the thread was this

    the parser turned it into this on the display

    !function(a){var b="embedly-platform",c="script";if(!a.getElementById(b)){var d=a.createElement(c);d.id=b,d.src=("https:"===document.location.protocol?"https":"http")+"://cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js";var e=document.getElementsByTagName(c)[0];e.parentNode.insertBefore(d,e)}}(document); .......

    Which is fine. It would be nice for pasted links by users to be converted into embedly..... but it needs to fire on display.


  • Merged but can't publish until later. 👍


  • Hello, instead of using the plugin, you can put this on the head (Admin Control Panel -> Appearance -> Custom Header, then check the box "Enable custom Header") to display embed.ly only inside topics. This works on lavender:

    <script>
      (function(w, d){
       var id='embedly-platform', n = 'script';
       if (!d.getElementById(id)){
         w.embedly = w.embedly || function() {(w.embedly.q = w.embedly.q || []).push(arguments);};
         var e = d.createElement(n); e.id = id; e.async=1;
         e.src = ('https:' === document.location.protocol ? 'https' : 'http') + '://cdn.embedly.com/widgets/platform.js';
         var s = d.getElementsByTagName(n)[0];
         s.parentNode.insertBefore(e, s);
       }
      })(window, document);
      
      embedly('card', {selector: 'div.topic-text a'});
    </script>

    But this will transform all links in embed.ly, I would like to embed just some thinks like wikipedia excerpts and these kind of stuff...

    Never liked embed.ly, I wonder how much javascript it would take to make your own embed.ly type embed of url's

    Don't care much for it either.... but there is nothing yet that I have found that embeds a linked page like facebook does as well as the embedly. I would like to find something better myself.

    Until the fix is merged, have you tried playing with the order of plugins? The embedly plugin should be loaded after Markdown


  • Hello, I was sucessfull using this https://github.com/nfl/jquery-oembed-all

    Just add to Admin CP -> Appearance - > Custom HTML & CSS then add to Custom Header and enable it.

    <script src="https://rawgit.com/nfl/jquery-oembed-all/master/jquery.oembed.js"></script>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://rawgit.com/nfl/jquery-oembed-all/master/jquery.oembed.css"  />
    
    <script>
    $(function(){
       $("div.topic-text a").oembed();
    });
    </script>
    

    It doesn't embed all links, but if you use https you can have error by loading via http, i'm still seeing it. : )

    edit. using this:

    <script src="https://rawgit.com/kassius/jquery-oembed-all/master/jquery.oembed.js"></script>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://rawgit.com/kassius/jquery-oembed-all/master/jquery.oembed.css"  />
    
    <script>
    $(document).ajaxComplete(function() {
       $("div.topic-text a").oembed();
    });
    </script>
    

    With this code I was able to embed wikipedia articles through https and also pdf through scribd. Very cool!!

    @julian I did try the change as suggested

    {
    "id": "nodebb-plugin-embedly",
    "name": "NodeBB Embed.ly Plugin",
    "description": "NodeBB Plugin that allows users to embed Embed.Ly cards inline in their posts.",
    "url": "https://github.com/a5mith/nodebb-plugin-embedly",
    "library": "./library.js",
    "hooks": [
    { "hook": "filter:parse.post", "method": "parse", "priority": 6 }
    ],
    "staticDirs": {
    "css": "./static"
    }
    }

    But is still a random fix.

    Thanks @Codejet for the Favorite.


  • @RichG Embedly has a pretty decent API which you can potentially call from the NodeBB server instance - it will give you a fair bit of data from the page that you're trying to embed, in JSON format. Up to you how to use that data.

    Once I have a stable and scalable "vanilla" NodeBB, want to look at using their API on NodeBB.
