Feature request: Discourse forum Onebox support for plotly .embed URLs

Discourse is a popular open-source forum software that this community happens to run on.

Discourse has a system called Oneboxing for turning URLs into previews.

For example, here is what the onebox for this URL https://github.com/discourse/onebox looks like:

I am proposing a feature request to add onebox support for plotly embed URLs, like this one: https://plot.ly/~empet/14234.embed

That way, the above URL will be transformed into a live plotly graph, and bob’s your uncle.
