Using Embedly in rich text

Hello everyone,

We’re currently in the process of migrating from Markdown to rich text as it gives us some long desired features, such as better embedding of other items within Contentful. However, losing the ability to embed external content with Embedly is a huge downside. Will the ability to use Embedly within rich text be worked on going forward? Or are there any known workarounds for this usecase?

At the moment the best workaround would be to create a new content type (e.g. ‘Embed’) which has a field for the embedded URL and then create a custom Rich Text renderer that renders the content type with required HTML class so that the Embedly JavaScript recognizes the element.
