Previously, WRD had shared Pubwich, an open source application that can fetch data from different sources.

It is not updated since 2010 and there is a regularly updated fork named PubwichFork.

To remind, the application can aggregate any published data from multiple sources including websites + social networks and display them in a single-page.


The sources supported include Atom, RSS, Delicious, Youtube, Vimeo, Flickr, and more.

PubwichFork is built with PHP and it is a handy project for quickly having a personal website that you almost do nothing to update but manages to keep fresh.

shareNice is an open source social sharing widget -similar to AddThis or ShareThis- for adding sharing features to any website easily.

It focuses on the privacy of users, doesn't place any cookies or share any information with 3rd party services.

There is built-in support for most of the popular social websites (Twitter, Facebook, Delicious, etc.) and, considering the source is available, new ones can be added (or removed).


It is possible to customize the services to be displayed, color-scheme, icon sizes and the label ("share" by default).

P.S. shareNice is also available as a free-to-use service.

Sharrre is a jQuery plugin that eases creating social sharing widgets for Facebook,Twitter, Google Plus, Digg and Delicious.

The plugin calls the social buttons on demand which is great for minimizing the number of initial requests and improving loading speeds.

Any type of custom designs can be created for the widgets (no need to use the default buttons provided by the social networks) and events(like, +1, tweet, etc.) can be fired up with the plugin's API calls.

P.S. Google Plus widget requires PHP to work (the PHP file is already included in the package).

Web pages usually display multiple widgets of different networks (like Facebook Like, Tweet button, etc.) for social sharing.

ShareCount is an open source script that collects the number of sharing activities in a single counter.

The counter sums up the number of sharings of an URL in Twitter, Facebook, Digg and Delicious.


Also, it saves space by providing the ability use each social network's widget from the same button (that nicely toggles on hover).

The code of the script is pretty straightforward and it is easy to define new services.

ShareKit is an open source package for quickly adding share features to any iOS application with just 3 lines of code.

It supports popular services like Delicious, Twitter, Facebook, Google Reader, e-mail and more.


The kit enables sharing images, URLs or files and only displays the appropriate services for the type of the content.

ShareKit has a customizable UI to match the look of your application and it works offline as well (sends the pending items when there is a connection).
