Curated Embeddable News

These are the news items that I have curated during the monitoring of the API space that have some relevance to the Embeddable conversation and I wanted to include in my research. I am using all of these links to better understand how the space is defining not just their APIs, but their schema, and other moving parts of their API operations.

They could be companies, institutions, government agencies, or any other type of organizational entity. My goal is to aggregate so I can stay in tune with what they are up to and how it impacts the API space.

Embedly delivers the ultra-fast, easy to use products and tools for richer sites and apps.


Iframely gives you simple APIs to have all the Webs best media on your site and on all your users devices.

Mozilla Brick

Brick is a collection of UI components designed for the easy and quick building of web application UIs. Brick components are built using the Web Components standard to allow developers to describe the UI of their app using the HTML syntax they already know.


oEmbed is a format for allowing an embedded representation of a URL on third party sites. The simple API allows a website to display embedded content (such as photos or videos) when a user posts a link to that resource, without having to parse the resource directly.


A better way to install 3rd party apps. StackPile allows you to install and use 3rd party tools and apps on your website in seconds without expensive code changes.

The Open Graph protocol enables any web page to become a rich object in a social graph. For instance, this is used on Facebook to allow any web page to have the same functionality as any other object on Facebook.

Embeddable Tooling

These are the open source tooling that I come across in my research who are doing interesting things in the API space.
