Iframely API for Responsive Web Embeds
Iframely is fast and simple HTTP API for responsive web embeds and semantic meta. The API covers well over 1600 domains through 150 custom domain plugins and generic parsers for oEmbed, Open Graph and Twitter Cards, powered by Iframely's whitelist.
The whitelisting is manual process, and we do every-day manual regression testing to ensure integrity. Submit your domain, if you publish embeds.
In response to
url request, APIs returns you the embeds and meta for a requested web page. Below are samples from hosted API, just to show you the format:
Iframely can also be used as Node.js library. Requires Node version 0.10.22 and up.
The simplest way to see Iframely in action is by using our Chrome plugin. This way you will see the embeds on your (or any really) site right away (but not on GitHub due to Content-Security-Policy, sorry).
Or, try Iframely demo with your very own or any other Twitter feed. Don't forget to click on results to see the embed codes.
