Create a share tool:

var share = require('voxel-share')({
  // pass a copy of the game
  game: game,

  // api key from https://api.imgur.com/oauth2/addclient
  key: 'abcd1234',

  // specify a message to set as caption/tweet
  message: 'Greetings from voxel.js! @voxeljs',

  // type of image: image/png or image/jpg
  type: 'image/png',

  // quality of image. between 0 and 1
  quality: 0.75,

  // do something else with the image link after it's uploaded
  afterUpload: function(imageLink) {
    // Open the tweet dialog with image link

Then upon desired event, open/close the share dialog:

window.addEventListener('keyup', function(e) {

  // on enter, open dialog
  if (e.keyCode === 13) share.open();

  // on esc, close dialog
  if (e.keyCode === 27) share.close();


Check the example for a more in-depth usage.


With npm do:
