npm package required Mirador version

A Mirador 3 plugin which adds a dialog for sharing links via mail or WhatsApp or to Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.



Currently the plugin can only be used if you build your own Mirador JavaScript bundle. To include the plugin in your Mirador installation, you need to install it from npm with npm install mirador-canvaslink, import it into your project and pass it to Mirador when you instantiate the viewer:

import Mirador from 'mirador/dist/es/src/index';
import canvasLinkPlugin from 'mirador-canvaslink/es';

const miradorConfig = {
  // Your Mirador configuration
Mirador.viewer(config, [...canvasLinkPlugin]);


You can configure the plugin globally for all windows and/or individually for every window.

For global configuration add the canvasLink entry to the top-level window configuration (globally for all windows) or to the individual window object:

const miradorConfig = {
  window: {
    // ....
    canvasLink: {
      // Global config for all windows, see available settings below
  windows: [{
    // ....
    canvasLink: {
      // config for an individual window, see available settings below
  }, // ...

You can view an example configuration in demo/src/index.js.

The available settings are:

  • getCanvasLink: Required. A function that returns a link for the currently visible canvases. Receives this information about the current window:
      canvases: [...],
      manifestId: ...,
      visibleCanvases: [...],
      windowViewType: ...,
    Must return a string.
  • dialogOpen: If the share dialog is open. Boolean, defaults to false.
  • enabled: If the plugin is enabled. Boolean, defaults to true.
  • showRightsInformation: If rights information defined in the manifest should be shown. Boolean, defaults to true.
  • singleCanvasOnly: Set to true, if getCanvasLink can only generate links for a single canvas, this will disable the "Share" button in book view.


Found a bug? The plugin is not working with your manifest? Want a new feature? Create an issue, or if you want to take a shot at fixing it yourself, make a fork, create a pull request, we're always open to contributions :-)

For larger changes/features, it's usually wise to open an issue before starting the work, so we can discuss if it's a fit.

Note: The package requires Node.js 16 and npm in major version 8.
