MobileShare: A Web Share API implementation for WordPress
« on: January 28, 2019, 04:01 PM »
Did you know that (some) mobile browsers support a new(ish) API to integrate your mobile operating system's sharing functions via JavaScript?

Well, here you go.

Tested on Chrome on Android, Firefox won't work just yet. Enjoy or whatever.
Probably won't be hosted on WordPress.org (they require the shitty GPL license). Probably will be a NANY 2020 project.

The plug-in website may or may not stop being 404 some time.  :-[

Instructions:
1. Unzip the zip file into wp-content/plugins/.
2. Activate the plugin.
3. Donate 1 Million USD to me because I need it.

Good luck, have fun, whatever.

Neat! I had no idea about the mobile share API.

1. Unzip the zip file into wp-content/plugins/.
2. Activate the plugin.
3. Donate 1 Million USD to me because I need it.

Looks like I don't meet the minimum requirements. :( :P

I was informed that Automattic considers WordPress plugins to be derivative works of WordPress, so I would (technically) be required to release it under the GPL. As the GPL is an awful pile of shit, I'd rather not.

Thus, I will probably unpublish my WordPress plugins by the end of 2019. Grab them while they're still online.
