  • How to create dynamic NextJS post! | 2021-04-03
    Inspecting the code (with Chrome Developer Tools, or the source code available on GitHub) I've seen a specific function to generate the post featured image. Adapt it to a JavaScript stack like the one on my blog (NextJS) it doesn't seems a problem. The basic functionality to achieve is the next one: get an URL where, if you make a GET query, it returns us an image with the post title you want to share, the blog's name, my personal image and the publish date. To achieve all of this, I decide to use the native NextJS serverless functions, as they adapt it perfectly to cases like this one. The only thing I have to do to create a serverless function in NextJS is to create a JavaScript function inside the /pages/api/ folder, in order to notify NextJS that this one is a serverless function (or Lambda in Amazon Web Services). With this function, we can get different results than with NextJS pages or React components. Also, the function will have as param the post slug, to know which post we need to return the featured image. The basic aproach is the next one:
