ShareThis Share Buttons Magento Extension

ShareThis Share Buttons is a tool that allows you to expand the reach of your content organically and grow your audience. Make it easy for your audience to share your content across the most popular social channels.


  • Choose from 40+ social channels: Facebook, Twitter, Email, LinkedIn, WhatsApp, Pinterest, Snapchat, Reddit, Tumblr, Digg, Flipboard, Meneame, Facebook Messenger, Odnoklassniki, Sina Weibo, Vk, Blogger, Xing, Mail Ru, Livejournal, Buffer, Douban, Evernote, Google Bookmarks, Gmail, HackerNews, Instapaper, Line, Pocket, QZone, Diaspora, Surfingbird, Refind, RenRen, Skype, Telegram, Threema, Yahoo Mail, WordPress, and Wechat
  • Configure your buttons to stay anchored on the sidebar as visitors scroll or inline near your headline or product on the page for ideal visibility
  • Customize the design including the alignment, size, and color to match your brand
  • Increase social shares with our responsive, lightweight, code which loads asynchronously and won’t slow down your site.
  • Select your preferred language from over 15 options: English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Dutch, Arabic, Bengali, Hindi, Turkish, and Vietnamese.

Installation via Composer

Installation via Composer is recommended.

composer require sharethis/magento-sharethis-sharebuttons
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

Installation via Github

Alternatively, you can install via cloning from Github.

mkdir -p app/code/ShareThis
git clone app/code/ShareThis/ShareButtons
composer install -d app/code/ShareThis/ShareButtons


This repo comes with a built-in Docker-based development environment. First, clone the repo.

git clone
cd magento-sharethis-share-buttons

Add the host entry for site:   magento.local

Next, build Magento.

make prepare

Now that the containers are built, let's set up the admin:

make init

Once that's done, we can populate the site with sample data. This will take at least 20 minutes. Make sure you set your Docker resources high (8GB RAM at least).

make populate

NOTE: This command will ask for your Magento credentials. Visit and copy the Public Key and Private Key in as the Username and Password respectively.

Once this is done, your store will be populated with sample data and you can log in with credentials populated from the MAGENTO_ADMIN_USERNAME and MAGENTO_ADMIN_PASSWORD values from the env file.
