ALM Readiness Treasure Map–Sharing refactored

Hello everyone, as VS ALM Ranger I’m member of the ALM Treasure Map project, and I’ll show you the new sharing feature we have implemented.

 

Now we can share Text and Html content, for example, Text is used by Twitter app and Html is used by Email app. If other app uses some of those way of sharing, it will work as well.

Sharing to email – it adds the picture and the whole project description

Sharing to Twitter – it adds the project name and the links related to it. It also ensure that the share will be done in less than 140 characters

 

How it’s done in the code? Simply like that:
