Embed Gettyimages photos (iFrame) using Oembed.

npm install GettyEmbeddy@0.1.3



npm version Build Status

Embed Gettyimages photos (iFrame) into your website using Gettyimages's native oEmbed endpoint.

the concept was as lightweight and direct as possible for smaller footprint so if you want a power horse with > 500 LOC check something like embedza, url-embed or jquery-oembed-all. However, make sure they support Gettyimages!

Feedback and PRs are welcomed.

you made a library for THAT! no chance, I will create my Iframe link on my own!

well, you can't -.-

unlike other social services out there, GettyImages kinda forces you to use oEmbed (or their API) to get the working iframe link.

However, if you managed to generate the url on the fly, please tell me!
