ShortCodes.jl to embed content from Twitter, YouTube etc in Pluto

I’m using Pluto more and more for presentations, and like to include some videos, tweets or images to spice it up a little. While using embed codes from each website works fine, I started playing around with something along the lines of the Hugo shortcodes. The result is ShortCodes.jl, which is pretty basic, but serves my current needs.

# Embed tweet by id

# Embed youtube video by id and seek to start time and pause 
# to show custom still image
YouTube("IAF8DjrQSSk", 2, 30) # 2 min 30 seconds

# Embed Flickr image by url

# Share string, e.g. a url, with the audience of a presentation using QR code:

As an example, the twitter embed should render something like this:

Let me know what you think, suggestions for improvements are welcome.


Cool stuff!

Isn’t it redundant to specify “” for Flickr embeds?


Good point about Flickr, I guess since the API requires a url I just left it at that, but then so does Twitter. Perhaps the same trick could work for Flickr. I’ll have another look.

EDIT: The same trick seems to work for Flickr, did a minor update and now this should work:
