Options

Sharing Popup Size

You can set a specific Height or Width for the sharing popup using the socialshare-popup-height="" and socialshare-popup-width="" attributes (sometimes, if if the popup is too small, it gets resized by third parties)

<a href="#"
socialshare
socialshare-provider="reddit"
socialshare-url="http://720kb.net"
socialshare-text="Sharing it!"
socialshare-popup-height="800"
socialshare-popup-width="800">
Share with a bigger popup
</a>

Sharing Event Trigger

You can choose to bind a different event trigger for showing up the sharer popup using the socialshare-trigger="" attribute (you can use any angular element.bind() event you want)

<a href="#"
socialshare
socialshare-provider="reddit"
socialshare-text="Sharing on mouseover"
socialshare-trigger="mouseover">
Share me when mouse is over
</a>

or a set of

<a href="#"
socialshare
socialshare-provider="reddit"
socialshare-text="Sharing on mouseover"
socialshare-trigger="focusout mouseleave">
Share me when focusout or mouseleave
</a>

Service

You may need to share from a controller (for example), this is how to use the Socialshare service:

  .controller('Ctrl', ['Socialshare', function testController(Socialshare) {

    Socialshare.share({
      'provider': 'facebook',
      'attrs': {
        'socialshareUrl': 'http://720kb.net'
      }
    });

    Socialshare.share({
      'provider': 'twitter',
      'attrs': {
        'socialshareUrl': 'http://720kb.net',
        'socialshareHashtags': '720kb, angular, socialshare'
      }
    });
    //every attrs must be in camel case as showed above
    //this will open the share popup immediately without any trigger event required

Some providers (specially mobile provider, such as: Viber, Whatsapp etc..) do not work with a Service call, because their API or Usage does not allow a trigger event on them

Globals

Provider setup

Sometimes you may need to set default values for all the sharing buttons, here is how to setup this:

.config(['socialshareConfProvider', function configApp(socialshareConfProvider) {

  socialshareConfProvider.configure([
    {
      'provider': 'twitter',
      'conf': {
        'url': 'http://720kb.net',
        'text': '720kb is enough',
        'via': 'npm',
        'hashtags': 'angularjs,socialshare,angular-socialshare',
        'trigger': 'click',
        'popupHeight': 800,
        'popupWidth' : 400
      }
    },
    {
      'provider': 'facebook',
      'conf': {
        'url': 'http://720kb.net',
        'trigger': 'mouseover',
        'popupHeight': 1300,
        'popupWidth' : 1000
      }
    }
  //and so on ...
  ]);
}]);

NB if you define the provider settings, but then you change the option value by html attributes, the html attribute value will be the final one (the one that will be used)
