Hi everyone,

Thought you might like to know about a new open source Rails engine
for adding oEmbed providing to an application. Here's the


Version 0.1 of the oembed_provider gem is out.

oembed_provider is a Rails engine to answer oEmbed requests for
application media asset models. In other words, this gem allows your
application, after configuring the gem and the relevant models, to act
as an oEmbed Provider by providing a controller that returns JSON or
XML for a given oEmbed consumer request for the specified media asset.
This gem does not offer oEmbed consumer functionality.

The gem has only been developed with Rails 2.3.5 up to this point, as
that is what my needs are right now, but it would be great if others
contributed compatibility with later versions of Rails.

More information is available at https://github.com/kete/oembed_provider.

Issues can be reported at

This gem was developed for the Kete open source application
(http://kete.net.nz) and was funded by pledge campaign to improve
media selection from with the rich text editor (i.e. the TinyMCE
plugin, look for TinyMCE media selector plugin soon). Horowhenua
Library Trust, Wellington City Libraries, Te Reo o Taranaki,
Environmental Earth Sciences, CALYX, and many individual contributors.
Thanks to all contributors.
