Each event page will now include a panel of sharing buttons linked to the main social media sites, allowing the viewer to share the event with their friends. Currently we’re displaying the following:
- Direct email
The relevant React logic is stores in the following component:
MAIN FEATURES & INGREDIENTS:
- Buttons are powered by the external library ‘react-share’
- The full list of compatible platforms is very comprehensive, included for reference in the component index file - however many of these are either focused on local audiences - e.g. VK/VKontakte in Russia - or not fully compatible with web browser - e.g. WhatsApp/Telegram.
- The component identifies the URL to share via the viewer’s window.location object, and also includes a text message with the event title (via the page title) and the event schedule.
- Additional details on the component logic are available in the .js file using JSDOC documentation.
