Create a Cloud Form that Embeds any Published Cloud Notebook

The new Wolfram Notebook Embedder library is pretty cool, and I've been using it a lot for various things. One of those things is making the embedder easy to use by having it be applied from a template to form data supplied in a form.

I understand it's a bit silly to embed a cloud notebook in cloud hosted HTML, but it's got some utility as a proof-of-concept for some bigger, more complex thing.

Anyway, here's what I did:

Create the template

You can import some HTML that contains the <script> tag used to get the embedder library, along with whatever slots you want the template to fill:

<!DOCTYPE html>
            <title>Basic Example</title>
            <script crossorigin src=""></script>
            <h1>A Basic notebook with a Manipulate</h1>
            <h2>Created by: <wolfram:expr>$WolframID</wolfram:expr></h2>
            <div id="container"></div>
                WolframNotebookEmbedder.embed( "<wolfram:slot id='url' />", document.getElementById('container'), {allowInteract: true});

Note the TemplateSlot with the id 'url'...

Create the template after import:

    html = XMLTemplate[
      Import[FileNameJoin[{NotebookDirectory[], "body.html"}], "String"]]

Create the form

The body of FormFunction is where you're going to stash TemplateApply to take the user-provided string and inject it into the corresponding TemplateSlot:

form = FormFunction[

  "url" -> <|
    "Hint" -> "Insert path to cloud notebook",
    "Interpreter" -> "String",
    "Label" -> "CloudObject link"

  TemplateApply[html, <|"url" -> #url|>] &,

  AppearanceRules -> <|
    "Title" -> "Embed your Cloud Notebook!",
    "Description" -> 
     "Use the Wolfram Notebook Embedder library to embed your cloud \
notebook into an HTML webpage",
    "SubmitLabel" -> "Embed"

Deploy the form

Deploy the form with whatever permissions you want:

CloudDeploy[form, "embedForm", Permissions -> "Private"]

Embed a cloud notebook!
