Ridiculously Responsive Social Sharing Buttons

Join the chat at https://gitter.im/kni-labs/rrssb

Love them or hate them, social sharing buttons appear to be with us for a while. It seemed like we were constantly making custom buttons for every single project, so we decided to create a super flexible system that would work in any container.

RRSSB is built with SASS, so you can easily customize it by tweaking a few variables. SVGs allow for tiny file size and retina support. Add or remove icons as you see fit -- the rest will fill in automagically in the container.

Usage

1) Copy css to your document or link to the css file in header:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/rrssb.css" />

2) Copy .rrssb-buttons unordered list to desired location(s):

<!-- Buttons start here. Copy this ul to your document. -->
<ul class="rrssb-buttons clearfix">
  <li class="rrssb-email">
    <!-- Replace subject with your message using URL Endocding: http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/dencoder/ -->

<!-- Buttons end here -->
  • Only copy the <li>s of the buttons you want (index.html has examples of all available types).
  • Adding a class of popup to the anchor tag for each share button will make the share dialog open in a popup, rather than a new window. (Good for Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, etc.)
  • Buttons will automatically flow to the size of the ul rrssb-buttons. If fixed sized buttons are needed, nest rrssb-buttons in a fixed-width container.
  • Each sharing URL requires various parameters that allow you to pass through messaging in the sharing dialog. A useful tool for URI escaping any messaging that needs to pass through the share URL can be found here.
  • Alternatively, all share metadata and links can be configured using Javascript

3) Copy rrssb.min.js to your document or link to javascript files at the bottom of your page (before the closing body tag for best results - jQuery CDN, jQuery fallback, and rrssb.min.js):

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>window.jQuery || document.write('<script src="js/vendor/jquery.1.10.2.min.js"><\/script>')</script>
<script src="js/rrssb.min.js"></script>

Optional: Configure URL and share text with javascript:
Instead of editing each href by hand, you can call some Javascript to set the URLs on each social button automatically.

Note: to support users who have disabled Javascript, you still need to edit the hrefs by hand.

Paste the following before the closing body tag, after the scripts you added in the last section:

<script type="text/javascript">

jQuery(document).ready(function ($) {

  $('.rrssb-buttons').rrssb({
    // required:
    title: 'This is the email subject and/or tweet text',
    url: 'http://kurtnoble.com/labs/rrssb/',

    // optional:
    description: 'Longer description used with some providers',
    emailBody: 'Usually email body is just the description + url, but you can customize it if you want'
  });
});
</script>
