Some sites are integrated to chat . What additional sites should the chat support?

One suggestion per answer.

  • I personally think any site with OpenGraph data (complete) and/or an appropriate API should be oneboxed. see related post – rlemon May 2 '13 at 22:21

    I would think that any screen scraping software can detect non-linkified email addresses just as well. – Juha Syrjälä Aug 28 '10 at 10:45
  • Good point. I forgot that this would require a non-obfuscated address in the first place. Downvote removed (sorry 'bout the edit, the vote was too old). – Pops Aug 28 '10 at 23:35

For the back story, I came across a great paper the other day on Quantum Tokens for Digital Signatures. I posted a link in Crypto.SE's chat. Sadly, it didn't get the first few lines of the abstract, which would have been awesome.

The fisherman caught a quantum fish. "Fisherman, please let me go", begged the fish, "and I will grant you three wishes". The fisherman agreed. The fish gave the fisherman a quantum computer, three quantum signing tokens and his classical public key. The fish explained: "to sign your three wishes, use the tokenized signature scheme on this quantum computer, then show your valid signature to the king, who owes me a favor".

AlternativeTo has an API and could be useful for WebApps and SuperUser.

last.fm so we can share our musics.

Since a heaps of these chats are of the intellectual sort, I think oneboxing TED talks will be appreciated.

So how about something like this :

Anyway we can onebox Strava profiles/activities? They have an API which you can use located here

Coding Horror

Coding Horror blog posts should be oneboxed

Try It Online links: https://tio.run/nexus
Useful for showing (partly or completely done) submissions in PPCG, not sure how useful it would be on SO though

CommitStrip

Similarly to XKCD, CommitStrip oneboxing could be added

O'Reilly Product Page, with the image and short description.

MDN

For linking relative articles on Mozilla Developer Network.

There should be some links about the new version, updates, related to the particular rooms technology. For instance about Android, recently Lint is a newly featured added to Android and still many are unware for that, so there should be links about such new update.

Yahoo Answers! But perhaps only to replace the link with a giant troll face.

(Actually I did have one instance in which it would have been useful.)

    What about Le Monde? Der Spiegel? The New York Times? The New York Post? The Weekly World News? – Pops Sep 2 '10 at 17:34
  • @Pops [+1] Might as well wrap all that by simply including news.ycombinator.com ;) – e-sushi Oct 5 '16 at 16:11

    I can't imagine a SE site where that would be useful.. – Blorgbeard Jul 15 '10 at 18:03
  • @Blorg - yes, but Twitter - that's another story! – user27414 Jul 15 '10 at 18:05
  • @Jon, yeah most of the time, but twitter is occasionally the only reference for some recent event, and if the account is verified as someone who should know.. it's useful. – Blorgbeard Jul 15 '10 at 18:18
  • Eg. Jeff and Joel talk about SE on twitter = useful for meta chat. – Blorgbeard Jul 15 '10 at 18:19

    I understand now. Twitter and Facebook are both places where people blurt out meaningless garbage. However, Jeff and Joel blurt out garbage on Twitter, therefore it is useful. – user27414 Jul 15 '10 at 18:30

    And just to be clear, my comment just before this proves that MSO is yet another place where people blurt out meaningless garbage :) – user27414 Jul 15 '10 at 18:30

    Facebook is evil ... it should be tipped into the fires of mt. doom where it was forged. – Moog Jan 25 '12 at 22:32
