Available events

Events are emitted on the vue $root instance:

social_shares_change Network object, shared url Fired when the user open a new sharing popup while another is already open
social_shares_close Network object, shared url Fired when a sharing popup is closed or changed by another popup

You can listen to a vue-social-sharing $root event by using the following code:

Vue.$root.$on('social_shares_open', function (network, url) {
  // your event code
});

And on the Local Vue-social-sharing instance:

change Network object, shared url Fired when the user open a new sharing popup while another is already open
close Network object, shared url Fired when a sharing popup is closed or changed by another popup

You can listen to a vue-social-sharing local event by using the following code:

    <social-sharing @open="open()" @change="change()" @close="close()">
    </social-sharing>
</some-component>

Note that the social_shares_close event is not fired for the Whatsapp, SMS and Email sharers.

Extending the network list

Since version 2.3.1 you can extend and override the list of available networks. You can see a working example of the feature in the examples/vue2-example.html file:

<social-sharing ...:networks="overriddenNetworks" inline-template>
    <div>
        <network network="custom">
            Custom network
        </network>
    </div>
</social-sharing>

<script>
    ...
    
    new Vue({
      data: {
        overriddenNetworks: {
          "custom": {
            "sharer": "https://mycustomdomain.com",
            "type": "popup"
          },
        }
      }
    });
</script>

There are two available network types:

Type Effect
popup Open the sharing link in a new popup
direct Open directly the sharing link (suitable for mobile apps sharing, emails, sms, ...)
