TIL that Zapier uses #WebComponents to allow people to embed zaps on their web pages ⚡️

I had a giant turtle chase me at a ceramics gallery today!

A small turtle cases the camera person much like a dog wanting to be pet.

Excited to find that there’s a lot I ought to learn before code can start in earnest on a new portfolio — so many CSS features have become viable in the time since I designed my last one >:)

Currently looking for an plugin to actually render a social card in a post, not to be confused with a plugin that generate the cool meta tags in order to get a nice looking card on other websites.

Anyone got that somewhere? at the bottom of a pocket maybe?

DavidDarnes,
@DavidDarnes@mastodon.design avatar

@nhoizey @GoOz @nicod beat me to it 😅. I don't actually use this plugin on my own site as behind the scenes I'm using Ghost which generates them. However I did make this plugin as way to help remove Ghost from my somewhat complex setup. Be warned that if you have a lot it’ll increase built time.

Side note: I'm working on a Web Component that does a similar thing. Another drawback is that they look awful in RSS readers, generating the card on the client would prevent that

DavidDarnes,

@nhoizey @GoOz @nicod that's fine if there’s a standard link inside of the Web Component. All the card is doing is providing visual flare to the link

DavidDarnes,
@DavidDarnes@mastodon.design avatar

@cory @nhoizey @GoOz @nicod @lene oh that's a smart trick! Also much less noise in the code for screen readers. The only thing I don't like is that the image is very fixed in presentation, the text within it doesn't match with the rest of the page text size

DavidDarnes,
@DavidDarnes@mastodon.design avatar

@cory @nhoizey @GoOz @nicod @lene maybe I'll get back into making that Web Component for this type of thing. I know that it's not ideal to be using the client to load it, but fundamentally it's just a link that's been made pretty which matches quite nicely to WCs progressive enhancement capabilities. Also RSS readers and reader views will get to cut to the chase and have just a link to click than lots of noise

DavidDarnes,
@DavidDarnes@mastodon.design avatar

@cory @nhoizey @GoOz @nicod @lene anyone interested in trying out my <link-peek> component to “unfurl” links into rich previews? I’d like to see how well it works on web pages and how it appears in reader apps / RSS readers

@cory let me know what it does! Not sure I can do much about it at this end 😅
