Python-oembed

This library provides a pure python OEmbed consumer to get resources from OEmbed providers.

Based on reference from http://oembed.com/

oEmbed is a format for allowing an embedded representation of a URL on third party sites. The simple API allows a website to display embedded content (such as photos or videos) when a user posts a link to that resource, without having to parse the resource directly.

OEmbed format authors:

  • Cal Henderson (cal at iamcal.com)
  • Mike Malone (mjmalone at gmail.com)
  • Leah Culver (leah.culver at gmail.com)
  • Richard Crowley (r at rcrowley.org)

Install

pip install python-oembed

Use

To create an instance of the oEmbed consumer:

>>> import oembed
>>> consumer = oembed.OEmbedConsumer()

To add a provider endpoint to this consumer:

  • The first parameter is the URL of the endpoint published by the provider.
  • The second parameter is the URL schema to use with this endpoint.

For example:

>>> endpoint = oembed.OEmbedEndpoint('http://www.flickr.com/services/oembed', ['http://*.flickr.com/*'])
>>> consumer.addEndpoint(endpoint)

To get the provider response for a URL:

>>> response = consumer.embed('http://www.flickr.com/photos/wizardbt/2584979382/')

To print the response results (each field can be read as a python dict, None if empty):

>>> import pprint
>>> pprint.pprint(response.getData())
>>> print response['url']

To read the full documentation:

$ pydoc oembed

Test

cd python-oembed
python oembed_test.py
