I wrote an itsy-bitsy plugin this afternoon to add oEmbed support for Cloudup, a fabulous service I use on a daily basis which was recently acquired by Automattic.

This was a fun exercise for me, inspired not only by my switch from CloudApp, but also this trac ticket, and a desire to develop my understanding ((which, as of this morning, was non-existent)) of the plugin creation and submission process to assist my editing of the Plugin Developer Handbook ((OK, I admit I’m also procrastinating a tad on some masters paperwork I’ve got to sort out this week)) .

I imagine the audience for this is fairly small, the service isn’t yet open to the public (although many, myself included have invites should anyone need one), and I suspect it’ll be in Jetpack before too long.

It’s up in the plugin repository, and as such can be downloaded here.

That was a fun afternoon, and I’m so excited to have written my first WordPress.org plugin, even if it is ridiculously small and after so many years. Baby steps, baby steps.
