PinIt

This gem is a Rails plugin for adding a Pinterest.com "Pin It" button to your views.

Pinterest's “Pin It” Button for Websites page.

NOTE: This gem's authors are not in any way affiliated with Pinterest.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'pin_it'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install pin_it

Usage

Rails 2.3.11-ish

After adding the gem to your Rails app and running the bundle command, you need to add this line to get the small JavaScript component included. In your application layout, include this:

<%= javascript_tag pin_it_js %>

Then, in your views, do something like this:

<%= pin_it_button :media => image_url(@photo.url),
                  :description => @photo.description,
                  :url => photo_url(@photo) %>

The button defaults to the horizontal layout, to specify an alternative version just pass through count_layout like so:

<%= pin_it_button :media => image_url(@photo.url),
                  :description => @photo.description,
                  :url => photo_url(@photo),
                  :count_layout => 'vertical' %>

The current available options are vertical horizontal and none

Rails > 3.1
