*** This project is no longer maintained. The website, Embedit.in, no longer exists. So there is no point. I did establish some solid code objects that might help others in developing similar modules. Good luck everyone! ***

This module allows the user to upload documents to Embedit.in (http://embedit.in) and display them in a dedicated node. These nodes will upload, update, and delete documents on your Embedit.in account and display them through their website using the service's flash player.

Excerpt from Embedit.in Features page (http://embedit.in/features):
Documents on your website should be more than an afterthought. Make it convenient for your viewers to see and interact with your content right in their browser with no need to prompt for any software download or account for variability in user experience. Experience never-before-possible control over the documents and files on your website.

This services offers:

  • Embedding
  • Annotation
  • Analytics
  • Security

What kinds of files can I embed?

Pretty much any kind of document, image, or text file. To be specific:

  • Documents: Word (DOC/DOCX), Excel (XLS/XLSX), PowerPoint (PPT/PPTX), WPD, ODT, ODP, ODS, PDF
  • Images: GIF, JPEG, PNG, TIFF, BMP, PSD
  • Vector Graphics: API, EPS, PS
  • Text: TXT, RTF, CSV
  • Code: HTML, SQL, JS
  • Web: Web pages or other URLs

You can embed files up to 20 MB.

This module utilizes the Embedit.in API: http://embedit.in/api

You must sign up for an account with the service. All accounts are free (awesome) and they support the following document types:

  • PDF
  • Word
  • Excel
  • PowerPoint

Sign up for an account at: http://embedit.in/my

For this module I have written a completely independent PHP API Library to interface with the Embedit.in API that can be used without this module.

If you want just this library I will be putting it up on my website soon at http://www.patrickthurmond.com/my-code-projects/embedit-in-integrator-a-...

Otherwise you can download it from here with the module.

I have applied for full project status. I would love to get feedback from anyone interested in this project as well as any suggested improvements. I am considering making a version of this that works with media mover.

Development of this module sponsored by VML.

Drupal 7 version coming soon!

I am working on a Drupal 7 version of this module. I am still working on understanding all of the changes. The 7.x-1.x branch does load in D7. However, it does not work correctly. Once I understand how to implement this as an entity (I am still stuck in node-mode in my head) I will finish the changes and push a version out there for D7.
