Test post with an embedded wave

Posted by: aigarius 5 years, 11 months ago


Hello all, the latest craze is the Google Wave preview. I am in, so I am testing how a Google Wave will look when primitively embedded into a blog post using Wavr plugin for Wordpress. And here it is:

[wave id="googlewave.com!w+Vc58PZQwA"]

Update: to make it work - replace in the Wavr source the URL to the WavePanel to "https://wave.google.com/wave/" and to determine your wave url, go to your wave interface, click on a wave and look on you address bar for something like "googlewave.com!w+Vc58PZQwA". If you have '%252B' in the URL, replace it with '+'. You might have to un-urlescape something else as well, so remember that '%25' is a url escape for '%'.

    Yes, because we *needed* more technologies that encouraged script tags referencing third-party scripts.

    Yeah, I don't like this particular usage of Wave either. It needs to be fully integrated to be really useful. Basically someone needs to either write a blog just with it or make a deep integration thing with WP where everything is a wavelet - blog post and all the comments.

    But this would require to write a custom frontend to the Wave API - something that would have static pages and allow anonymous comments (most likely those would show up as posted by a bot). You cann't just use the generic Wave javascript interface and expect it to work - this requires a lot of integration work.

    Nope, the worst thing about this way of 'using' Wave is that you need to have a Google Wave preview account to just even view the Wave. It is pretty retarded.

    Now I finally learned how to make a wave public (hint: add public@a.gwave.com as a participant in the wave) and now also people without Wave accounts can see it.

    I'm not seeing an embedded Wave.

    On overall, the Wavr plugin is not working at all (yet).

    Worked like a half a day. I guess Google changed something and it stopped working.

    And now it is working again. Remember this is not even a beta, more like a semi-public alfa.

    What problems does Google Wave solve?
    I don’t see any sense…

    Watch the super long Google Wave video, they describe a few nice use cases right there. For one good thing I hope that there will we an addon that will allow to make blog comments be a Wave - this way you have threaded comments that follow you back to your Inbox and give a rich and mostly unified interface across multiple sites. You can have a rich discussion on another person's blog page without ever leaving your Inbox and your Inbox interface.

    Read this yesterday and later that day I encountered a case where it would be very useful. It�s a nice way to pass around objects even if you don�t �have� one. Better than making object parameters optional all over the code imho�

    Very cool - however, I immediately didn't trust the plugin when I saw it at the top of the page. It just seemed like it was a trap though I know it's not.
