Embed Grabbs

Article writers can leverage the grabb API to embed grabs when citing other articles either from their own domain or others.

Using a standard embed object with the src attribute set to grabbd.it/api/grabb?grabb={sURL} will retrieve the grabb. (Where sURL is the value that appears in the url after "page/.")

Optional variables:

Variable Accepted Values Description
trunc true or false. Default if value not supplied = true. Truncates the quote text to first 150 characters plus "...". This is the standard appearance for grabbs on grabbdit.
style news or quote. Default if value not supplied = quote. Sets the display style of the embedded grabb.

Embedding a grabb allows you to reference your source and ensure that the source will not be lost if the original page is taken down or altered, an invaluable tool if you are referencing external material whose lifecycle you cannot control.
