SocialButtons

A plugin for Publish that allows you to easily embed social buttons (e.g. Tweet button) in your site.

Installation

Add it as a dependency in Package.swift:

let package = Package(
    ...

    dependencies: [
        .package(url: "https://github.com/alanpaivaa/SocialButtons", from: "0.1.0")
    ],
    targets: [
        .target(
            name: "AmazingBlog",
            dependencies: [
                "SocialButtons"
            ]
        )
    ]
)

Usage

TweetButton

A Tweet button allows users to easily share content from your site.

TweetButton(
    style: .small,                          // Choose small or large size
    text: "Check out my amazing article!",  // Text to be shared on the tweet
    hashTags: ["engineering", "swift"],     // Hash tags to be added on the tweet
    via: "alanpaivaa",                      // Twitter account for attribution
    related: ["other_user"]                 // Twitter accounts related to the shared content
)

To render the default Tweet button widget, it’s also necessary to load the Twitter widget script:

HTML(
    .head(
        ...
        .loadTwitterWidgets()
    ),
    ...
)

If you need to customize the button, you can use a regular Link and build the Tweet url with TweetURLGenerator. In that case, it’s also needed to set the url parameter pointing to the page to share.
