    • npm install look-at-this or bower install look-at-this
    • Import the assets
    • Add a container for the icons called #social-icons

    Take a look at examples at

    Config networks order and visibility

    To get an overview an available list is stored in window.socialIcons.networks (Array of string).
    Simply set up a "data-networks" attribute at the #social-icons container to define order and visibilty of share buttons. For example data-networks="email,googleplus,facebook,github,hackernews"

    Change share url, title and so on?

    By default the settings are stored like this. Each property can be a function.

        // default configuration
        if (!window.socialIcons.setup){
            window.socialIcons.setup = {
                title 	: document.title,
                url 	: location.href,
                subject : "Look at this my friend",
                body 	: function(){
                    return "Take a look at this website. It is awesome! " + window.socialIcons.setup.url;

    So you can set them to what you need. This informations are masked per social network in the url property at .scream.js for library build. The buildjob bundles them to window.socialIcons.list.

    Custom style

    There are only two CSS classes to style button layout .social-share-button and .social-icon.

    Custom Template

    The output of share buttons are base on a simple template. If you need a custom template add a script block like the following to your HTML code.

        <script type="text/html" id="social_icon_template">
          <% for ( var i = 0; i < icons.length; i++ ) { %>
            <a class="social-share-button" href="#share/<%=icons[i].name%>" target="_blank">
          <div class="social-icon social-icon-<%=icons[i].name%>"></div>
          <% } %>
