jQuery Socialist

jQuery Socialist Plugin

jQuery Socialist is a plugin that allows you to quickly and easily pull all of your social media channels into a single location and display them in a Pinterest styled layout.

To get this up and running you just need to head over to GitHub and download the plugin.

Check out the example over here.

This is running with the following configuration….

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function () {
    $('#content').socialist({
        networks: [
            {name:'linkedin',id:'justinavery'},
   //         {name:'facebook',id:'responsivewebdesigns'},
            {name:'pinterest',id:'justinavery/infographics'},
            {name:'pinterest',id:'justinavery/design-inspiration'},
            {name:'twitter',id:'justinavery'},
            {name:'twitter',id:'reswebdes'},
            {name:'googleplus',id:'105538118593373148003/posts'},
   //         {name:'rss',id:'http://surfthedream.com.au/feed/'},
  //          {name:'rss',id:'http://www.makebetterwebsites.com/feed/'},
  //          {name:'craigslist',id:'boo',areaName:'southcoast'},
            {name:'rss',id:'http://surfthedream.com.au/feed/'}
           ],
        isotope:true,
        random:true,
        fields:['source','heading','text','date','image','followers','likes']
    });
});
</script>

As you can see I’ve commented out a few of the lines simply because I don’t really want/need them. The Facebook is removed because I really didn’t like the way it was being rendered, and I think a little more work could go into the Twitter layout. I’m planning on doing a bit of work around those.

If you want something similar set up for your site and need some assistance I’m happy to help.
