Inline Graphs in Campfire/Propane

While looking for a project that could demonstrate the power of our new JavaScript SDK, we were inspired by a nifty piece of hacking by the Github and Papertrail teams (release still pending) that inlines live log streams into the popular Propane client for Campfire on OS X. So we spent a little time hacking together our own Propane extension that recognizes links to a Librato instrument and upon clicking the link expands it into a fully-functioning graph including autorefresh, tooltips, annotations, etc:


You can find the extension and instructions on Github. You'll also note that this integrates nicely with our pre-existing support for pushing snapshots into Campfire. If you see a snapshot whose contents you'd like to observe in real time, simply click the link we include above the snapshot to see the live graph!
