Manual Installation

If instead you prefer to manually install, first create a block with the text {{[[roam/js]]}} on any page in your Roam DB. Then, copy and paste this code block as a child of the block.

var existing = document.getElementById("roamjs-giphy");
if (!existing) {
  var extension = document.createElement("script");
  extension.src = ""; = "roamjs-giphy";
  extension.async = true;
  extension.type = "text/javascript";


Type {{GIPHY: }} into a block. Continue typing your gif search term after the colon. A list of GIPHY results will render below the block as you type. Click on one to replace the text with a link to the gif.

For example, typing {{GIPHY:jumping cat}} and clicking on the first result will render:
