Chronicle::Plugin::YouTube - Allow Youtube videos to be embedded.


This plugin allows simple markup to be expanded into inline YouTube videos. The tag "youtube" will also be automatically applied to the appropriate entries.

For example the following blog-post will contain an inline video:

    Title: My Title
    Date: 10th March 2015



Now follows documentation on the available methods.


The on_insert method is automatically invoked when a new blog post must be inserted into the SQLite database, that might be because a post is new, or because it has been updated.

The method is designed to return an updated blog-post structure, after performing any massaging required. If the method returns undef then the post is not inserted.

This plugin will look for lines of the form:


Any such link will be replaced by an inline version of the video, and the blog-post will have the string youtube added to its tag-list.
