prettySociable integration for Plone.

Project description


prettySociable is a jQuery plugin that tries to make sharing fun while being easy to use. It was inspired by the sharing on

While ShareThis and AddThis provides a very useful piece code that allow users to share basically anything everywhere, their solution is not the prettiest nor the easiest to use. prettySociable simply asks the user to drag the items he wants to share onto the website he wants to send it to.

The code is fully customizable, either from the CSS, or through custom settings you can set upon initialization.

The original implementation can be found here:

‘collective.prettysociable’ is an integration of prettySociable for Plone.

The following sharing services are available (see configuration to disable services):

  • Facebook

  • Twitter

  • Delicious

  • Digg

  • LinkedIn

  • Reddit

  • StumbleUpon

  • tumblr


This package requires Plone 3.x or later (tested on 3.3.3 and 4.0b3).

Installing without buildout

Install this package in either your system path packages or in the lib/python directory of your Zope instance. You can do this using either easy_install or via the script.

Installing with buildout

If you are using buildout to manage your instance installing collective.prettysociable is even simpler. You can install collective.prettysociable by adding it to the eggs line for your instance:

eggs = collective.prettysociable

After updating the configuration you need to run the ‘’bin/buildout’’, which will take care of updating your system.


To use prettySociable for inline elements just add ‘prettySociable’ from the styles menu (Kupu and TinyMCE) to the link.


collective.prettysociable can be customized via property sheet (go to ZMI, portal_properties, prettysociable_properties).

  • opacity: value from 0.0 to 1.0 (default: 0.80)
