    Currently, here are the options available for posting "projects" (e.g: things that I've worked on):
    upload_2017-4-1_1-19-28.png

    It can be useful to have an option to add just a link. Once posted, you would scrape that link Ie.g: similar to how Facebook or other websites do it, and present an image + text from that page (that we can also customize).

    Adding this could mean we can publish many new types of projects or work we're involved in, for example:
    • Personal website / blog
    • Github page with open source repositories
    • Articles written in professional websites
    • Code snippets available online
    • Link to released games (App store / Google play / Steam / etc)
    • ... etc
    The "scraping" part will just make that look nice when publishing, showing a featured image & text from the relevant page (which should also be customizable of course).

    Hey liortal,

    Thanks for the feedback. We are current designing a larger update to the projects concept so we'll take this into consideration.
