11ty iFramely Bookmarksby Jay Cuthrell
I’m truly enjoying 11ty. I’m also looking to recapture some of the layout options I still miss from Revue (RIP) for unfurled cards the created flexible previews of embedded URLs within my newsletter.
First, I created a free account on iFramely.
Second, I customized the outputs offered.
Third, I gathered all the bookmarks I had been considering for sharing in the newsletter and did manual testing for a variety of embedded results. (Yes, my reading is a bit nerdy.)
These are examples of a website where the creator has made a design choice that can accommodate the smaller card timeline format. The graphic choice is ready to be presented in a square format.
While not pixel-perfect, there are examples where even a cropped square of a graphic still works well.
Of course, there is the loss of context from cropping out text (to say nothing of alt text) for the smaller card timeline format.
Then again, graphics are not compulsory and a fallback to simple text is reasonable.
Next, I’ll be working on incorporating the API as my free time permits.
I’m going to SxSW 2024.
Will you be at SxSW 2024 too?
If so – let’s catch up in the real world.
I’m also publishing my SxSW 2024 schedule picks (so far).
I am linking to my disclosure.
p.s. As I’ve gotten older, I have come to appreciate getting snail mail. If you have time to drop me a postcard that would be amazing. ✉️
