You can use the following code sample to explore using parameters and different content types with next/og. To learn more about OG Image Generation, see Open Graph Image Generation.

Create an api route with route.tsx in /app/api/og/ and paste the following code:

app/api/og/route.tsx
import { ImageResponse } from 'next/og';
// App router includes @vercel/og.
// No need to install it.
 
export async function GET() {
  return new ImageResponse(
    (
      // Modified based on https://tailwindui.com/components/marketing/sections/cta-sections
      <div
        style={{
          height: '100%',
          width: '100%',
          display: 'flex',
          flexDirection: 'column',
          alignItems: 'center',
          justifyContent: 'center',
          backgroundColor: 'white',
        }}

                </a>
              </div>

      </div>
    ),
    {
      width: 1200,
      height: 630,
    },
  );
}

If you're not using a framework, you must either add "type": "module" to your package.json or change your JavaScript Functions' file extensions from .js to .mjs

Preview the OG route locally by running the following command:

pnpm
yarn
npm
pnpm dev
