OG images

Plugin to create Open Graph images automatically

Options See on deno.land


This plugin creates automatically images with the content of your pages. It works great combined with metas plugin to create Open Graph meta tags.

The library Satori is used to generate the SVG images (that are then converted to PNG with Sharp). The URL of the image generated is saved in the metas.image variable, so it's detected by metas plugin.


Import this plugin in your _config.ts file to use it:

import lume from "lume/mod.ts";
import ogImages from "lume/plugins/og_images.ts";
import metas from "lume/plugins/metas.ts";

const site = lume();

site.use(metas()); /* Optional, to generate <meta> tags */

export default site;


To generate the images, you need to specify the layout used to render the HTML content with the variable openGraphLayout. For example:

openGraphLayout: /layouts/og_images.jsx

As layout variable is used to render a page and generate the HTML, the openGraphLayout is used to render the page and generate the Open Graph image. You can use _data files to set the same layout to all pages or different layouts per directory.

Satory library

Satori is the library used to generate the images and only accepts JSX elements (or React-elements-like objects). For example:

/** @jsxImportSource npm:react@18.2.0 */

export default function ({ title, description }) {
  return (
        height: "100%",
        width: "100%",
        display: "flex",
        flexDirection: "column",
        alignItems: "center",
        justifyContent: "center",
        backgroundColor: "#fff",
        fontSize: 32,
        fontWeight: 600,
        viewBox="0 0 75 65"
        style={{ margin: "0 75px" }}
        <path d="M37.59.25l36.95 64H.64l36.95-64z"></path>
      <div style={{ marginTop: 40 }}>{title}</div>

As you can see, the layout is similar to a standard JSX layout in Lume. The page data is passed in the first argument so you can use the title, description or any other variable to generate the image.

See the documentation for a complete list of all CSS properties and HTML elements supported by Satory.

You can use the Playground for testing and experimentation.

Fonts and configuration

By default, the plugin loads the Inter font. If you want to use custom fonts, you have to configure Satori to load them. For example:

import { read } from "lume/core/utils/read.ts";

/** Example with the default values */
  satori: {
    width: 1200,
    height: 600,
    fonts: [
        name: "inter",
        weight: 400,
        style: "normal",
        data: await read(
        name: "inter",
        weight: 700,
        style: "normal",
        data: await read(


The output images have the same path as the HTML pages but with the .png extension instead of .html. For example:

  • The page /example.html generates the image /example.png.
  • The page /example/ generates the image /example/index.png.

Image URLs are saved in the metas.image variable, ready to use with metas plugin.
