  • How do I change the image that Google shows for my website?
    reddit.com/r/webdev | 2021-09-08
    Vercel has a really good simple generator if you don’t want to spend time on graphic design: https://og-image.vercel.app
  • I am working on an open graph image generator, and would like some feedback!
    reddit.com/r/HTML | 2021-08-17
    After some research, I found out that Vercel made an app (https://og-image.vercel.app/) that was really good, but did not quite fit what I was looking for, so I largely cloned the idea (but with my own code).
  • I made a tool to automatically serve images to use as OpenGraph images (social preview images). Does anyone want this??
    reddit.com/r/nextjs | 2021-08-14
    Nice work. But I am using my custom fork of https://github.com/vercel/og-image.
  • What's Next(.js)? - Prologue
    dev.to | 2021-08-14
    I ended up choosing Puppeteer and capture the web page, which is pretty far from what I initially wanted. Puppeteer needs more time and memory than I prefer. I can generate an image, download it, and then use it as a cover image. But, I want to create an API (with Next.js API routes) that functions as Open Graph Image as a Service. I later found out that Vercel already made this 🥲, still, I want to create my own.
  • When I make a shareable link to my website via text, Facebook, Whatsapp, etc., how do I get a thumbnail to appear on the link above the title and meta description?
    everyone has talked about opengraph; if you are too lazy to make one like me, vercel made a decent free one (it just sticks their logo on it)
  • Boring Avatars – react library to generate custom avatars
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-05-28
    That sounds a great side project, since some developers might prefer a static svg dynamically created via url like boringavatar.app/[username here].

    There's some prior work on this: e.g. https://github.com/lfades/static-tweet and https://github.com/vercel/og-image.

  • Automate Open Graph image creation
    dev.to | 2021-04-12
    If you are a developer, you've probably seen the Open Graph images (part of Open Graph Protocol) generated by popular dev related websites like DEV.to or even Vercel's Open Graph Image as a Service. Both examples are using an approach to render image related to the content, so it contains some standard layout background, an image in it that is related to the content (vercel's logo or author's avatar), headline or title of the article, and a description.
  • Three ways to use Puppeteer and Node.js to screenshot web pages and generate dynamic Open Graph images for social sharing
    dev.to | 2021-03-17
    To create dynamic Open Graph images for my personal blog site built with Next.js and Contentful, I forked this repository from Vercel that uses Puppeteer in the same way as described above, and created my own custom service which I host on Vercel.
  • Gatsby and Linkedin SEO Images
    reddit.com/r/gatsbyjs | 2021-02-21
    We use https://www.gatsbyjs.com/plugins/gatsby-plugin-seo/ and https://github.com/vercel/og-image for different parts of the website - LinkedIn used to be an issue but after a few tweaks all seems to be OK.
  • [Showoff Saturday] - I made this little MVP for an app that creates generative social/meta images. CodePen + info in the comments!
    reddit.com/r/webdev | 2021-01-23
    You can turn this into an API with vercel functions, and generate OG images on the fly. Here is a demo if you are interested,
  • Generating beautiful Open Graph images with Node.js
    dev.to | 2021-01-01
    Several libraries and services use this approach, most notably gatsby-plugin-printer and Vercel's og-image service.
