Embedding the Query Service in Medium
Open, NormalPublic

Description

There was a discussion on Twitter where people try to embed a query service visualization in the fancy blog platform Medium.

Apparently, it's not possible, because the website has to be in the[[ http://embed.ly/providers | list of supported providers ]]. Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons are already there. It would be amazing if Wikidata and the query service could be included, too.

Ok.
Is there anything we need to change on our side or just sign us up?

http://embed.ly/providers/form

Embedly needs a way to extract the Embed. Here are the choices:
An oEmbed API
Twitter Cards

Looks like we have to implement the oEmbed API which might be useful for other use cases. No idea how difficult that is.

@johl : can you describe a bit more the steps that would be to do? I'd like to add the ticket as need-volunteer but we should clarify it first.

I think @Jonas can explain that better.

It seems that we cannot provide the service needed by embed.ly:

or

  • Twitter Cards

A third alternative could be this:
