Gatsby Theme AddThis

Gatsby Theme to add the AddThis share buttons to your Gatsby Site.

Usage example

Rename or copy .env.example file to .env and add your public id from AddThis dashboard. Then click on Get the code and copy the last part of the url e.g. the script might look like

<script type="text/javascript" src="//s7.addthis.com/js/300/addthis_widget.js#pubid=ra-1234abc"></script>

So here ra-1234abc is your ADDTHIS_PUBLIC_ID that you have to add to the .env file

# .env content
ADDTHIS_PUBLIC_ID=ra-1234abc

Configure gatsby-theme-addthis and pass the public id by using dotenv.

gatsby-config.js for the example:

require('dotenv').config()

module.exports = {
  plugins: [{ resolve: `@awolf81/gatsby-theme-addthis`, options: {
    publicId: process.env.ADDTHIS_PUBID
  } }],
}

Options

publicId
Your AddThis public id.

Components

You can use AddThisOptions component in your page to add options to AddThis config variable.

Import the component with import AddThisOptions from '@awolf81/gatsby-theme-addthis/components/AddThisOptions' and use

<AddThisOptions options={exampleOptions} />

Where exampleOptions is a JavaScript object of the options you'd like to add to the global config variable of AddThis.

Troubleshooting

  • AddThis not loaded and just the page is rendered. Please check that your public id is correct and correctly passed to gatsby-theme-addthis publicId option. Also a restart of dev server could be needed to get the updated env var.
  • A usage of gatsby-theme-minimal that does nothing but use the theme. As a result you will see Error: Missing resources for / when navigating to localhost:8000. To get rid of that, create a page in src/pages/index.js.
