You’ve likely seen conference websites or other apps that dynamically create images and social cards based on your registration. It’s a great way to personalize an experience for an individual, especially when sharing online. What’s behind the magic of the dynamic social cards and how can we build landing pages with our own dynamic images to share?
There are variety of services that let us upload an image and see the result, but what if we want to view all of the images we’ve uploaded over time or provide a custom dashboard for managing those the images?
Building apps on the Jamstack gives us fast and reliable apps, but just because our front end may be static, doesn’t mean it can’t be dynamic. How can we use Uniform to give the control of content back to those who actually manage the content and add a personalization layer to our Jamstack apps with a more dynamic and effective experiences?
Image and asset managers like Cloudinary give you a lot of power in being able to automatically optimize and transform images, but when building an app, you can’t expect each user to upload manually in your dashboard. How can you share that power and give your visitors the ability to upload their own images from your app?
Creating a gallery of images on a page can be trivial, but what if you don’t have control over how the images are created? Ending up with different sizes and formats can turn a good looking gallery into a mess. Instead, we can use Cloudinary image transformations and Face Detection to make sure we’re always optimally showing our media.
OSS projects can be hard work and when you’re spending your time working on them, you want to be able to proudly display those projects. While GitHub has a Pinned mechanism, you would need a custom solution to do the same for your own website. How can we instead use the GitHub GraphQL API to bring our Pinned Repositories to our website?
The web (mostly) revolves around interactions, where people might be trying to accomplish a task or check in on something. As developers, we need a way to hook into these interactions regardless of the tools we use. While React gives us a lot of help with this out-of-the-box, how can we break free to leverage the full APIs of browsers?
