[New Feature] Link Previewing

We recently introduced embedding support for comments. To make it more interesting, we added a new feature to convert bare links to rich link previews.

Final Result!

All you have to do is to add a link in a new line. To make it work, the link

  • must be publicly accessible,
  • and must have Open Graph or Twitter meta tags.

We consider link previews as embeds. So, the website has to have embeds turned on (see the embeds/KaTeX announement for more details on it). Maximum embeds per comment is 3.

What are your thoughts on this little new feature?
