Module Description

Angular Social Share

Angular Social Share is a collection of directives which lets you easily share your links various social networks. Currently Facebok, Google, Twitter and Linkdin are supported. Social Networks get the Meta data of the shared content like Title, Summary and Image from the Meta tags on the page by scraping. But Single Page Apps like Angular are unable to support crawling. But these dirictives use alternative so that Meta data is displayed where it is possible. Checkout the Demo. Change Log


As of Verstion 1 This directive supports two way binding of data, so now you can populate the data in the directive from a HTTP request.

Future Plans

Support asyncronous loading of corresponding social plugin javascript assets.

Getting Started

Install the library through bower.

bower install angular-socialshare.

Include the script (and optional css file) in your html file.

<link rel='stylesheet' href="bower_components/angular-socialshare/angular-socialshare.min.css">
<script src="bower_components/angular-socialshare/angular-socialshare.min.js"></script>

Add to your APP's dependency.

angular.module('testing',['djds4rce.angular-socialshare'])

IMPORTANT

For Correct Sharing of links and updating share count you must enable HTML5 Mode True for your application. i.e No # in URL'S .

angular.module('testing').config(function($locationProvider){
    $locationProvider.html5Mode(true).hashPrefix('!');
});

HTML5 Mode requires server configration Explained Here

Share on Facebook

Facebook share uses facebook API which requires us to provide a APPID. Register a facebook app and Configure the APPID in your appplication. Note that you will get an error regarding 'not permitted URL' if you are testing this button in a localhost environment.

angular.module('testing').run(function($FB){
  $FB.init('YOUR_APPID');
});

Use the Facebook Directive

 <a facebook class="facebookShare" data-url='http://google.com' data-shares='shares'>{{ shares }}</a>

As we are using Facebook share API and not the facebook share button, you will have to style your own Facebook button, or use the provided stylesheet that has styles for the horizontal count button. You also need to display the share count, which the directive fetches from a diffrent API. The directive has transclusion set to true. The latest Facebook share API only allows for a URL to be supplied, it will scrape the other data (image, title, description) from the supplied URL.

The Attributes for the directives are

/*
data-url: URL of the Shared Content
data-shares: The Scope variable on which share count will be binded to. This lets you put
multiple share buttons on a single page and bind the share count to the respective model object.
*/

####Share via Feed Dialog The feed dialog works in the same way as the normal share dialog, but also has some addittional attributes available

 <a facebook-feed-share class="facebookShare" data-url='http://google.com' data-shares='shares', data-description="Example text">{{ shares }}</a>
/*
data-url: URL of the Shared Content
data-shares: The Scope variable on which share count will be binded to. This lets you put
multiple share buttons on a single page and bind the share count to the respective model object.
data-picture: The URL of a picture attached to the share. The picture must be at least 200px by 200px.
data-source: The URL of a media file (either SWF or MP3) attached to this share. If SWF, you must also specify picture to provide a thumbnail for the video.
data-name: The name of the link attachment.
data-caption: The caption of the link (appears beneath the link name). If not specified, this field is automatically populated with the URL of the link.
data-description: The description of the link (appears beneath the link caption). If not specified, this field is automatically populated by information scraped from the link, typically the title of the page.
data-properties: A JSON object of key/value pairs which will appear in the stream attachment beneath the description, with each property on its own line. Keys must be strings, and values can be either strings or JSON objects with the keys text and href.
data-actions: A JSON array containing a single object describing the action link which will appear next to the 'Comment' and 'Like' link under posts. The contained object must have the keys name and link.
*/

Twitter

Include the twitter javascript in your HTML.

<script src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js"></script>

Add Directive to the element where you want to display your Twitter Button

<a twitter  data-lang="en" data-count='horizontal' data-url='http://google.com' data-via='notsosleepy' data-size="medium" data-text='Testing Twitter Share' ></a>

The Attributes for the directives are

/*
data-lang: Language of the tweet
data-url: URL of the Shared Content
data-count: Position of the share counter
data-size: Size of the tweet button
data-text: Content of the tweet
data-via: User handle which will be tagged in the tweet
For options checkout https://dev.twitter.com/docs/tweet-button
*/

Linkedin

Although Linkedin has a share button and also a Javascript share API it does not take the title and the content as its parameters hence we will have to use the raw share URL to share the content.

Use the Linkedin Directive

<div linkedin class="linkedinShare" data-url='http://www.google.com.au' data-title='Linkedin Share' data-summary="testing Linkedin Share" data-shares='linkedinshares'>{{linkedinshares}}</div>

Linkedin Directive works similar to the Facebook Mechanism. This will force us to add our own style to the button and also display count which is fetched by the directive through a diffrent API. The supplied stylesheet contains styling for the horizontal styled button.

The Attributes for the directives are

/*
data-title: Title of the Shared Content
data-url: URL of the Shared Content
data-summary: Summary of the content
data-shares: The Scope variable on which share count will be binded to. This lets you put
multiple share buttons on a single page and bind the share count to the respective model object.
*/

Google +

 <div gplus class="g-plus" data-size="tall" data-annotation="bubble" data-href='http://google.com' data-action='share'></div>

For more information on the share button attributes check the Google Share Documentation

If you change the class of the button to `g-plusone' it will be converted to a google plus one button.
