A Python library for oEmbed that supports auto-discovered and manually included providers.
$ pip install pyoembed
The library provides a function that should be called to automatically embed
the url content, and it is called
from pyoembed import oEmbed, PyOembedException try: # maxwidth and maxheight are optional. data = oEmbed('http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PEdPBEpQfY', maxwidth=640, maxheight=480) except PyOembedException, e: print 'An error was ocurred: %s' % e # data is a dict with keys that will depends on the media type. You should # choose how to display the content based on the data['type'] value and # the oEmbed spec ( http://oembed.com/ ). if data['type'] == 'video': print data['html'] # and it goes... Someday we will provide default renderes for each media # type.
Addition of new providers
pyoembed tries to cover the major oEmbed providers, and should works for any provider that supports oEmbed auto-discover out-of-the box, however your favorite provider may be unsupported yet! :(
To add it, create a file inside the
pyoembed.providers package, based on
the following example:
from pyoembed.providers import BaseProvider class InstagramProvider(BaseProvider): # priority of the provider. Increase it if the provider isn't well known priority = 10 # url schemas that are supported by the provider. # re.compile'd regex are allowed. oembed_schemas = ['http://instagram.com/p/*', 'http://instagr.am/p/*'] # api endpoint that answers to oEmbed requests for the provider. oembed_endpoint = 'http://api.instagram.com/oembed'
You will also need to add some test urls of your provider to the
integration_test.py file, and run it to see if everything is ok.
If everything works, feel free to send a pull request to add the provider:
