Nearly 12 months after live coding an open source image generator for Node.js, puppeteer-social-image, I’m excited to finally announce OG IMPACT, a simple API to dynamically generate beautiful social media images! 🎉
I secured my first customer, https://offset.earth, before even launching! The team are using it to show off how many trees you've planted when you share your profile.
As our social feeds get noisier, it's become harder and harder to stand out from the crowd. Especially for platforms driven by dynamic, user-generated content.
Adding relevant Open Graph tags to your pages is considered one of the best ways to address this (Tumblr boosted their social CTR 2.5x), and the right image can make your content pop when it's shared. But if that content is dynamic, manually creating images for each page isn't an option.
My goal was to create an API that made generating unique Open Graph images as simple as making a GET request: https://ogi.sh/?title=Hello World.
You also get unlimited image requests for free, so it doesn’t matter how much your page is shared. Thanks to Travis and Saasify for making this a reality!
