The Link Preview Generator is a web-based tool that creates website previews (like in WhatsApp) but for note-taking apps.

Ideal when you take plain text notes but want to remember videos, movies, games, websites more visually.

Try it out


This is one of the first projects where I tried to focus on a speedy release (MVP) instead of spending much time on polish.
That’s why it’s rough around the edges, visually speaking.

It uses a headless browser (puppeteer) running on Heroku which does the crawling and image generation.
