add below two lines in post.js

import SharingButtons from "./SharingButtons";
<SharingButtons link={state.router.link} title={post.title.rendered} /> 

Make a :clap::clap::clap: or :heart: if you found this useful.

A small issue: Currently I have hardcoded the domain name. How can I make it automate?

Hi @mymakarim

That’s great, thanks for sharing.

Regarding your question about the hardcoded domain name, why not use the state.frontity.url property in frontity.settings.js and then pass state in as a prop to your component in order to use that property.

You will, of course, also need to add connect to the line import {styled} from 'frontity'; in your component, and also change export default SharingButtons to export default connect(SharingButtons).

Thanks, I don’t know why didn’t think of that :sweat_smile:

Awesome work again @mymakarim! If you want to turn it into a the first Frontity share package let me know and I will explain you how :slight_smile:

Sure. I’d love to :slightly_smiling_face:

Awesome! I’ve started an implementation proposal for the share packages in Frontity. As you can see, it’s not difficult, just getting a consensus so themes know where the components are if they want to include them.

I’ll review the implementation proposal tomorrow: The `share` namespace.
