    <ul>
        <li><a>....</a></li>
        <li><a>....</a></li>
        <li><a>....</a></li>
    </ul>

        'type' => 'small',
        'tag' => 'div',
        'template' => '<div>{button}</div>',
    ]);

The output of this will be something similar to :

    <div>
        <div><a> .... </a></div>
        <div><a> .... </a></div>
        <div><a> .... </a></div>

    ]);

Or

    echo Share::widget([
        'url' => Url::to(['site/index'] , TRUE),
    ]);

Don't forget to require the helper library Url and to use the second parameter of the method for the full URL to the page.

    use yii\helpers\Url;

        'description' => 'Some description',
        'image' => '/path-to-some-image.jpg',
    ]);

        'htmlOptions' => [
            'id' => 'new-id',
            'class' => 'my-class',
        ],
    ]);
