The Idea

I was inspired by Vercel’s opengraph image generator but didn’t want to paste their logo over everything (especially because I dont use vercel), and I was not happy with their options for images, so I decided to clone it. It provides a simple endpoint (called data.png) with not GET arguments so it will always work with social media platforms.

The Features (or planned features)

  • Simple generator UI
  • Several selectable backgrounds
  • Input for title, subtitle, URL, and URL Protocol
  • Live preview with image and code sample

The tech stack

Frontend:

  • HTML
  • JavaScript
  • CSS

Backend:

  • Node.js (express)
  • DigitalOcean App Platform

What happened

This is a live and evolving project, I made it primarily for myself but figured I may as well make it availble to the world.
