I am working on a companion site to drive users to my OCP install. The companion site (HumHub) is able to collect data from OCP using oEmbed.

I have previously been posting on Facebook using a simple URL from an OCP download page which generates both an image from the page and 2 formatted URL's to the page and the site. I am making the assumption that Facebook uses oEmbed.

I need information on how to connect to the OCP 'end-point' along the lines of the example below where %url% is the URL place-holder for the entry from the main screen (as would be the case with a Facebook entry).

Code

​http://vimeo.com/api/oembed.json?scheme=https&url=%url%&format=json&maxwidth=450


If there is documentation here on how to do this I would appreciate a pointer in that direction but an example url would be more than enough to get me started.

Many thanks

TQ

There is no such endpoint, sorry. We have an issue on the tracker to implement one.

Facebook doesn't just use oEmbed, it uses a range of techniques. One of those includes OpenGraph, which we do implement.


Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Hi Chris,

I recall mention in the Humhub community of OpenGraph, I'll go back and see if that's an option for me right now.

Thanks for responding to my enquiry.

TQ
