Instagram paste support?


(Subimage) #1

I love that you already have Flickr URL pasting working - but how about Instagram?

Does pasting reference the original file, or is it possible for Discourse to slurp the image down to the server?

I don’t know if Instagram allows embedding. Can you check their TOS? For example, they explicitly disallow embedding on Twitter.

Provided their TOS allows embedding, it might just need to be added to the whitelist. Which reminds me, we need to make the opengraph whitelist editable in the /admin settings now that the gem is complete @sam @eviltrout @zogstrip.

Instragram provides Web Embeds so I guess their TOS is OK with embedding.

They also have an OEmbed endpoint we might be able to use.

@eviltrout does this work with the new oneboxer?
