Oneboxing is when you post a link to a supported site on SE Chat and it automatically shows extra information. An example is when you post a link to a question in Chat and it converts to the title, start of the body and author.
So, I've made a userscript that lets you (or others) to create 'plugins' for Chat Oneboxing.
- Install the userscript.
- Copy and paste a plugin that someone has made just above the
--------------------------------in the middle of the script. That's it!
Developers: It's really simple:
- Install the userscript (so you can make and test your plugin)
- Make a HTML string containing all the data you need (ie. your onebox). You would probably use a 3rd-party API to get any information you need for the onebox.
There are examples and notes about creating plugins in the answers below! :)
You can install it from the GitHub repo.
You can also view the source at the GitHub repo.
If you make a plugin, please post it as an answer below, as I have done! :)
