A Gutenberg Embed Block to embed Tableau Public Vizualizations into a WordPress page with basic options. Provides options to hide tabs, hide toolbar, set device and set dimensions of the Viz.

  • This plugin will only work for Tableau Public Visualizations i.e. you need to have a viz hosted on Tableau Public (What is Tableau Public).

  • The Tableau Public Data policy can be viewed here. Data on Tableau Public is expected to be public.
  • Tableau’s privacy policy can be viewed here
  • This plugin does not store the data anywhere in any format. It simply provides a user friendly way to pull a viz hosted on http://public.tableau.com and embed it into the site hosting the plugin.
