    Assuming SWR (stale while revalidate) is working, we could definitely use the ability to edit images in workers. We would need support for node canvas or something similar.

    ECharts was originally a Baidu project, released under (ecomfe = "E-commerce frontend"?). They still maintain some of the auxiliary libraries.

    I've been using it since around ... 2018-ish[0]? ... as a replacement for Google Charts. It was my first time using a big library from one of the Chinese tech giants -- basic docs and tutorials in English, then all the advanced stuff (and comments) written in Chinese. I was impressed by how comprehensive the charts library was, and how they'd obviously invested a lot of brainwork into the configuration system. IMO it's one of the highest-quality data visualization libraries in JavaScript unless you're willing to dive deep into something like d3.js.

    The blog post's author describes running echarts in a headless Chrome, though, which seems insane to me. It's JavaScript rendering to a -- can't it run in Node with ?

    Another approach is it to create a background image and insert the texts and the metadata with a canvas library like node-canvas. This approach is very well described in this Learn With Jason episode. But with a canvas library we have to specify on which coordinates we want to render our texts and it does not wrap automatically if it becomes to long.

    If you want to go the same route check out the node-canvas library from the Automattic folks. That essentially lets you use the Browser Canvas API for drawing (but server side instead of in the browser).
