TinyMCE visual editor support for embed.ly service

Project Description

Introduction

This package provides TinyMCE visual editor support for embed.ly service: videos, images and other rich media can be inserted to Plone from different services through one API.

The approach here is to use the Transform machinery to replace the URL with embed code by calling the embed.ly API.

There are more than 200 services that support embed.ly service. These are such video sharing sites as Youtube, Blip.tv, Vimeo; such audio streaming services as Grooveshark, SoundCloud, last.fm; such image/photo stocks as Flickr, and many other: GoogleMaps, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

This product was developed by http://quintagroup.com for Plone collective, sponsored by Headnet ApS http://headnet.dk.

Usage

To embed media from the embedly-supported external resource to Plone:

  • Go to the object's edit form, select some text and click 'Insert/Edit Embedly link' button.
  • In the panel add link and configure extra parameters in 'Advanced' tab. Check http://embed.ly/docs/arguments for params description.
  • The text should now look like linked. TinyMCE makes the whole passage linked, so keep in mind that the whole passage will later be substituted with embedded media.
  • Save this page. Now when rendered, there will be "preview" from embed.ly service inserted instead of the linked text.
