Usage

You need to import each social button separately. For example, you want to use the share button on Twitter. To do this you need:

Import component
import TwitterButton from "vue-share-buttons/src/components/TwitterButton";

const app = new Vue({
  el: "#app",
  components: {
    TwitterButton,
  },
});
Add the button to your template
<div id="app">
  <twitter-button
    shareUrl="https://github.com/"
    shareDescription="GitHub is where people build software."
  />
</div>
And we get the button

vue-share-buttons-twitter
