I hope to write a plugin that will enable me to use Mozilla’s new Popcornmaker media authoring tool from within WordPress (https://popcorn.webmaker.org/ ).
To do this I have to figure out a couple of things:
(1) How to integrate the popcornmaker editor visually into the WP editor — I don’t have any idea how to do that yet but I’m hoping it won’t be too hard. I’m not worrying about that JUST yet.
(2) how to send wordpress authentication data to Popcorn’s own authentication layer — I guess I can just get the user info with get_currentuserinfo(), and figure out what else Popcorn itself will need.
(3) How to get the Popcorn data back into the wordpress post when I’m done. This is what I’m most worried about right now! I’m hoping it’s not so hard to get the authentication data to popcornmaker, but I don’t know how to get data BACK into wordpress.
Has anyone done anything like this before — especially, grab external data from another site and feed it automatically into a meta field?
Thanks so much for your help! –Matt
