Demo

What is a renderless component?

Renderless components give you the highest possible control over your markup and styling. This means that vue-social-sharing ship with minimal HTML and no CSS to let you adapt the look and feel of the components to your needs. You can learn more about renderless components in this blog article by @adamwathan.

Understanding social sharing

Before using this package it is important to understand how Social Networks handle sharing links on their platform. When you share a link on a Social Network, the Social Network will crawl the link to detect Open Graph meta tags. If you share links that do not contain Open Graph meta tags, the Social Network will not be able to display a rich content for your link. You can refer to the Available properties section of the documentation to check which Social Network accept which properties without Open Graph tags.

Extending the network list

In version 3.x you can extend and override the list of available networks. You can see a working example of the feature in the examples/index.js file:

import Vue from 'vue'
import VueSocialSharing from '@/vue-social-sharing'

Vue.use(VueSocialSharing, {
  networks: {
    fakeblock: 'https://fakeblock.com/share?url=@url&title=@title'
  }
})

new Vue({
  el: '#app',
})

Extending the network list in Nuxt

You can extend the list of available networks directly in your nuxt.config.js file:

modules: [
  ['vue-social-sharing/nuxt', {
    networks: {
      fakeblock: 'https://fakeblock.com/share?url=@url&title=@title'
    }
  }],
]
