I made a free tool that generates Open Graph images for GitHub repos.
I work in open source and was tired of sharing ugly links on Twitter and Facebook. This is how they usually look.
One day I realized GitHub lets you upload a custom image, so I started making some templates. I figured I could work it into Mugshot Bot and use the GitHub API.

Here's what that same repo looks like now. 😻
I use the GitHub API to pull in a few stats from the repo:
