Make it easier for others to quote you and your work in their blogs.
This project extends Press This functionality in two ways:
- It moves the UI from the browser Favorites bar into the web itself, embeddable on any web page.
- It untethers the functionality from one specific WordPress server, instead allowing a viewer to specify their own WordPress server, wherever that may be.
I built this as a proof-of-concept based on a tweet to Mike Caulfield.
Simply add this to your HTML in the same way you would any other "Share" embed.
Store the contents of the
src directory wherever you like, then change the
wpPressThisButtonServer variable in the code snippet to match the hosting location.
Serve the button locally
cd src && python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000 and open
You can try this yourself on any post on my blog, such as one describing a "fixed-effort" bicycle concept.
