    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)
