Templatetags for 'tweet this' and 'share on facebook'

Project description

https://github.com/fcurella/django-social-share/workflows/Python%20build/badge.svg https://coveralls.io/repos/github/fcurella/django-social-share/badge.svg?branch=master

Provides templatetags for:

  • ‘Tweet This’
  • ‘Share this on Facebook’
  • ‘Share on Google+’
  • ‘Share on LinkedIn’
  • ‘Share on Telegram’
  • ‘Share on WhatsApp’
  • mailto://’.
  • ‘Save to Pinterest’

Plain HTML templates are provided for your convenience, but you can override them to provide your own look and feel.

Installation

$ pip install django-social-share

Add the app to INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS += ['django_social_share']

You will also have to add django.template.context_processors.request to your context_processors list. This way the templatetags will use the correct scheme and hostname:

TEMPLATES=[
    {
        'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
        'DIRS': [
            os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'templates'),
        ],
        'OPTIONS': {
            'context_processors': [
                'django.template.context_processors.request',
            ],
        }
    },
]

Note in most cases sharing will not work if you are using localhost or your domain is otherwise not accessible from the public internet. For testing local development, you can use a service like ngrok, and set your Site instance’s domain to the hostname provided by ngrok.

Usage

{% post_to_facebook <object_or_url> <link_text> %}

{% post_to_gplus <object_or_url> <link_text> %}

{% post_to_twitter <text_to_post> <object_or_url> <link_text> %}

{% post_to_linkedin <object_or_url> %}

<text_to_post> may contain any valid Django Template code. Note that Facebook does not support this anymore.

<object_or_url> is optional (except Telegram). If you pass a django model instance, it will use its get_absolute_url method. Additionally, if you have django_bitly installed, it will use its shortUrl on Twitter.

<link_text> is also optional. It defines the text used for the a element. Defaults to ‘Post to Facebook’ and ‘Post to Twitter’.

<subject> may contain any valid Django Template code.

{% post_to_twitter_url <text_to_post> <object_or_url> %}

Will add a tweet_url variable to the context, containing the URL for the Twitter sharer popup.
