== INSTALLATION

1) Enable gems from gemcutter, if you haven't already done so:
    > sudo gem install gemcutter
    > sudo gem tumble

2) Install gem
    > sudo gem install rubymarks

== RAILS PLUGIN

This gem can be used as a Rails plugin. You can either extract it into
vendor/plugins, or use the new-style config.gem command in environment.rb. For
example:

    config.gem "Floppy-rubymarks", :lib => "rubymarks", :source => "http://gems.github.com", :version => '>= 0.0.1'

== USAGE

Once you've done that, you can use bookmark_tag in your views and controllers to
generate an HTML link tag, or bookmark_url to just generate the URL.
Examples:

    bookmark_url :tinyurl, "http://www.google.com"
    bookmark_tag :facebook, "http://www.google.com", :title => "Google"

Both functions accepts the following options - not all work with all services.

    :title - a title for the link (string)
    :text - some explanatory text to go with the link (string)
    :new_window - open the bookmark link in a new window (true or false)
