    Shields is probably the most widely used badge generation service. Another is Badgen. Shields has a larger variety with support for a wider variety of services, etc, but Badgen has a good variety as well, along with a few that Shields doesn't yet have. Most of these are dynamic badges, updating relevant information as things change (e.g., with new release version, build status, coverage percentage, etc). And both support both dynamic and static custom badges.
