前端工程师 | Trying To Do Better

I have created a cover image creation tool.

Open source, first throw the link Cover Paint.

The Unsplash api used in it is applying for Production, it should be ready in a few days. If the interface reports an error, please try again in an hour.

I have also written some articles on xLog and other platforms, previously using either no cover image, default cover image, or Unsplash images provided by the platform. Although they can be viewed, they cannot display the main content of the articles, so you still need to read the titles. They can be used, but not as good.

There were also comments before asking why I didn't use cover images, which didn't look very coordinated. At that time, I thought the default text covers provided could also be used. I noticed that the format of the content covers in the weekly reports of Raye's Journey ( author changed at some point and thought it looked good. So while slacking off at work, I thought about changing my own cover image.

I searched online but couldn't find any ready-to-use options. They were all logo designs that didn't match my needs. I also thought about using tools like Figma to create them, but I'm not very familiar with it, and I would still need to find images (maybe there's a Unsplash plugin for direct downloads), so I didn't use this method.

Later, I found a tool called Coverview, which was quite useful, but the overall style of the page wasn't very good, and the title, author name, etc. couldn't be dragged. The templates were quite limited, and it didn't support uploading images. So I decided to implement my own.

This is the initial version. The basic functions have been implemented. The aspect ratio of the downloaded image is 16/9, which is compatible with the cover image upload module of xLog. In the future, more templates, drag and drop functionality, and other features will be added.

Feel free to leave comments about any useful, not useful, or other features you would like to add.
