Unfurling plug-in?

Unfurling plug-in?

July 18, 2017 at 3:16pm
So we're creating a messaging/chat feature in our app at work. We'd like to have rich previews, similar to unfurling in Messenger, iOS, Slack, SPECTRUM, etc.
Is there a plug-in that anyone knows about, that will let us do that from our own end? Or does it really just rely on the sites themselves to have the proper metadata.
Thanks for any help.

We're using this: https://github.com/withspectrum/micro-open-graph

You are reliant on the sites themselves having the proper meta tags - and if they don't you'll need to handle fallbacks and null information appropriately :)
