Embed Google Wave in Blogger

Google wave. From YouTube - Google Wave Developer Preview at Google I/O 2009Yesterday I received an invite for google wave, google's new communication tool that had the potential to unify all of their services. I wanted to try how to embed a google wave in blogger. After some tinkering and trying I had it. Here it goes.

You can find a very nice introduction to google wave at mashable.

How to embed a google wave in blogger? Take these steps:

1. Create a wave in your wave client and make it public by sharing with public@a.gwave.com or (if the former doesn't work) easypublic@appspot.com.

2. Share your wave with embeddy, it's wave address is embeddy@appspot.com.

3. Embeddy gives you all the necessary code.

4. Put the code into your post or into an HTML/javascript widget in the sidebox.

Below you'll see a wave that I embedded. You might not see the wave if you don't have an account with google wave (btw, I have some invites left).

Please participate in the wave below!

If you want to embed the wave below yourself, take this code:

<div id="wave" style="width: 100%; height: auto">
</div>

<script
  type="text/javascript"
  src="http://wave-api.appspot.com/public/embed.js">
</script>
<script type="text/javascript">
  var wave =
    new WavePanel('https://wave.google.com/wave/');
  wave.setUIConfig('white', 'black', 'Arial', '13px');
  wave.loadWave('googlewave.com!w+HADobw_TB');
  wave.init(document.getElementById('wave'));
</script>







Enjoy. Please leave a comment below for questions and suggestions or ask for invites.

  4. I think a google wave would be great for many things, for example discussion forums, etc. Now that more and more people have accounts it would even be practical to do so.

  6. Google wave certainly is promising. Just wait a bit, but not too long ;). Google wave is integrating more and more of google's services and now other companies are beginning to use wave's funcionalities and to extend them.

  10. @Neil: If you put this code into an HTML/javascript widget in blogger it should work as it is. If you put it into a post or in the template you need to convert HTML special characters, for example < becomes &lt;. See my post about embedding code in HTML for more details and links.

  14. Choose whether any of your constraints are holding you
    back or whether you could employ the aid of others to pack in the spaces.

    Basically, you can attract traffic by means of online tools like blogs, which will improve your marketing offline.
    It is very much important to analyze the marketing plans of your competitors and change yours accordingly in order to
    be more successful compared to them.
