Custom services

If you have the need, you can enable your own service. To do that, as an example for a fictitious social service called "Foo", you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Add the logo of your service to the images' pack at app/packs/images/. Following the example, it’d be "foo.svg"

  2. Alternatively, you can provide any logo also. Simply as adding the icon key for such social share, e.g. "reddit-line"

  3. In addition to the remixicon, icon_color property can be added, using an Hex color, e.g. "#ff4500"

  4. Add the social share service block configuration at the bottom of your Decidim initializer:

Decidim.register_social_share_service("Foo") do |service|
  service.icon = "foo.svg" # (or "reddit-line")
  service.icon_color = "#ff4500"
  service.share_uri = "{url}"
Depending on the service, you could use the following variables in the share URI:
* url
* title
* desc
* image
  1. Add the "Foo" service to DECIDIM_SOCIAL_SHARE_SERVICES environment variable.
