Screenshot as a Service

With this app, we’ll be able to capture of any web page just by URL and turns it into PNG or JPG. This is so awesome, I love this feature same as I love my girlfriend, if there’s one.

With this feature we don’t have to open browser app, turns-on browser extension and Ctrl+Shift+V. It’s okay if we want to doing it just once, but what if we need to capture 50 of web pages? It means we need to doing it again and again whenever we want to capture screenshot the web page. Well, that will tiring us down, and that is not a JAMstack.

Instead of doing that, we can get screenshot with this easy way:

https://cdn.staticaly.com/screenshot/:url

Examples:

https://cdn.staticaly.com/screenshot/google.com
https://cdn.staticaly.com/screenshot/staticaly.com?fullPage=true

Open Graph image as a Service

This is a service that generates dynamic Open Graph images that you can embed in your <meta> tags.

Sometimes, I get very lazy when it’s time for creating a new image for each my blog post or web page, so I need friendly service who can give me nice response of images that I can use in my <meta> tag, so Twitter will use it as their embed preview, cool!

For examples, above image is generated just by this URL:
https://cdn.staticaly.com/og-image/Hello%20World.png?theme=light&md=1&fontSize=100px

So instead of creating a new image with Photoshop, we can on-the-fly generate image with https://staticaly.com/og-image

If you’re using WordPress, you can use Featured Image by URL plugin to use this feature in your website. You can also automatically generate it on your application with some custom function.
