What is Embedly?
Why use Embedly?
If you are using our normal embeds nothing has changed you can still use them! Embedly is an alternative if you want some cool added functionality.
Embedly is really focused on making content integration on your site consistent. It integrates CartoDB through a supported API and makes it so that no matter what CartoDB URL you share it will give you back the correctly formatted embed map for your site. This makes it really useful if CartoDB isn't the only content provider you are embedding on your site. Take a look at how it works over here.
Embedly also handles responsive embeds really nicely. If this has ever been a problem on your website take a look at this demo just paste in the URL of spencer the cat to see how it works with CartoDB.
