Random Quote Machine - sharing buttons


this is my Random Quote Machine so far: https://zelite.github.io/Random-Quote-Machine/

I made the twitter sharing button by appending the quote and author to this url: https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=. When the user clicks there, twitter opens in a new window with a prefilled tweet.

Is there a possibility to do the same for facebook and tumblr? I could not find anything in their documentation. All the solutions involve importing some javascript from them (tumblr), which I would not want for such a simple project. And for facebook, it seems I need an App ID.

Here is the source code: https://github.com/zelite/Random-Quote-Machine If anyone could be kind to have a look and review it =)

There does seem to be a bit of JavaScript involved in posting to Facebook and Tumblr, but no authentication or appID needed.

Tumblr button
Facebook button

Otherwise, your app looks good. You kept it nice and simple, which works well. Good job!
