NAME

Mojolicious::Plugin::LinkEmbedder - Convert a URL to embedded content

VERSION

0.2301

DESCRIPTION

This module can transform a URL to an iframe, image or other embeddable content.

SYNOPSIS

Simple version

  use Mojolicious::Lite;
  plugin LinkEmbedder => { route => '/embed' };

Full control

  plugin 'LinkEmbedder';

  get '/embed' => sub {
    my $c = shift;

    $c->delay(
      sub {
        my ($delay) = @_;
        $c->embed_link($c->param('url'), $delay->begin);
      },
      sub {
        my ($delay, $link) = @_;

        $c->respond_to(
          json => {
            json => {
              media_id => $link->media_id,
              url => $link->url->to_string,
            },
          },
          any => { text => $link->to_embed }
        );
      }
    );
  };

Example with caching

  plugin 'LinkEmbedder';

  get '/embed' => sub {
    my $c = shift;
    my $url = $c->param('url');
    my $cached;

    $c->delay(
      sub {
        my ($delay) = @_;
        return $delay->pass($cached) if $cached = $c->cache->get($url);
        return $c->embed_link($c->param('url'), $delay->begin);
      },
      sub {
        my ($delay, $link) = @_;

        $link = $link->TO_JSON if UNIVERSAL::can($link, 'TO_JSON');
        $c->cache->set($url => $link);

        $c->respond_to(
          json => {
            json => {
              media_id => $link->{media_id},
              url => $link->{url},
            },
          },
          any => { text => $link->{html} }
        );
      }
    );
  };

METHODS

See "SYNOPSIS".

register

  $app->plugin('LinkEmbedder' => \%config);

Will register the "embed_link" helper which creates new objects from Mojolicious::Plugin::LinkEmbedder::Default. %config is optional but can contain:

  • route => $str|$obj

    Use this if you want to have the default handler to do link embedding. The default handler is shown in "SYNOPSIS". $str is just a path, while $obj is a Mojolicious::Routes::Route object.
