oEmbed Server

Making it easier to embed your Knight Lab stories.

There's really no reason to visit this page, but in case you ended up here, this is what's going on.

oEmbed is a system to help third party sites embed content. It's the protocol that supports, for some CMSes, the ability to just put a URL to a Knight Lab Timeline (or other embeddable content) on a single line, and have the full story pulled in.

Each CMS is different; typically the adminstrator needs to do some configuration. Some people pay for service from Embedly to simplify the configuration. Embedly supports several Knight Lab story types, and we will try to keep them up to date as we add new services. It's because of Embedly that you can embed our stories on Medium.com. (See our blog post announcing that.)
