I have obtained this and it installed fine. No errors in browser console. But so far I can’t get a preview to show. At times it somewhat shows with images missing.
Update: I got a cnn.com URL to convert. But not flarum.org. Maybe flarum.org blocks such things.
But also, although it ended up working for the cnn.com URL it took multiple refreshes. I guess maybe to save resources/bandwidth it must not be instant?
Suggestion for future… some way to show the user that an embed is on its way. Not sure if that can be done. Like after you post, there’s a loading spinner next to the URL until the preview is ready?
Overall, it’s working and looks nice:
Another update: So far, this seems to struggle with some URLs. For example, a user shared the URL to their “weebly” website, and it didn’t convert. Even if a site has no open graph tags and even if it’s poorly coded, I think the backup scraper should get something. Even if it’s only the website title and favicon.
And I don’t say these things to criticize, I’m grateful for the time you put into this, and that you made it a one time fee! I’m just hoping that future versions might be able to convert more URLs and faster, or show a loading spinner.
