Add Spotify, Rdio, and GitHub’s Gist Embeds To Your Site

We’re happy to announce three new things that you can embed into your site!

Spotify

Embed music from Spotify by right-clicking any song, album, or artist in Spotify and selecting “Copy HTTP Link” or “Copy Spotify URI”:

Then paste that into your post editor, making sure that it’s located on its own line all by itself. You’ll end up with something like this when you view your post:

Rdio

If you’re an Rdio user, you can embed music from them too. Copy the URL from your address bar when looking at a track, artist, or playlist and paste that into your post editor. Here are a few examples:

If you use the Mac application for Rdio you can copy URLs from there as well. If you click the “Share” button you’ll see a URL to copy right at the top. Paste that in to your post editor and you’re all set.

GitHub’s Gist

We’re big fans of the code repository website GitHub here at Automattic and many of us use their Gist code snippets website. While we already have a cool way to embed code into your site, we realize many of you want to post Gist-hosted snippets too so starting today you can. Again, just copy/paste the URL out of your address bar onto its own line in the post editor.
