W3C Compliance + Language Specific OEmbed

A user let me know that embedding on social media would show ‘Explore [name] in 3D’ – regardless of the language used. I’ve fixed that! (Great Feedback).

This prompted me to do a bit of an audit on the code for MPEmbed … spacing / indenting / and validating.

Spacing and indenting one’s code is merely cosmetic (many people crunch their production code to keep people from stealing it and to marginally speed up loadtime). I like good looking code!

On the other hand, having 100% standards compliant code helps resolve browser issues and speeds up render time. I’ve audited MPEmbed’s code and streamlined where needed and fixed a few little things.

I have run tests on both the code that is rendered when the page is created, and the code that is rendered after all javascript commands (building menus, etc). 100% Standards Compliant!

For what it is worth, Matterport Showcase 3’s page has 4 errors and 3 warnings. The code that is dynamically created contains many more error messages – a total of 84 errors/warnings combined. Now of course, while MPEmbed has (currently) error/warning free — we’re still embedding Showcase, so this does not fix that.

Mattertag Directory Color Filters

The Mattertag Directory gets even more customizable now with color filters — only in MPEmbed Premium.

Colors can be relabelled and combined with lists to provide many amazing ways to use Matterport Spaces to document and annotate with Mattertags.

There have also been a pile of little tweaks and bug fixes to both MPEmbed and the Premium Configurator.

  • White Balance and Tint controls now show results immediately.
  • Hide Panel During Tour option works again!
  • Play Tour button now swaps to ‘Pause’ Tour button while playing.
  • Highlight Reel auto-Centers when clicking on a frame.
  • Resizing the window now updates the scrollbars on the Mattertag Directory and the Highlight Reel
  • Added UI Themed scrollbars to the TOS Windows
  • Deleting custom UI Text will restore text to the default text.
  • Fixed some cosmetic issues in Premium including mouse-over effects on the configurator menu, reducing the header by 20px and making the buttons a bit smaller.

And of course there’s plenty more coming soon 🙂
