Embeddable CanIUse Images

Ire Aderinokun, author of the CanIUse Embed, has added an extra option where you can embed static images of features as mentioned on CanIUse.com. The images are generated using Puppeteer, are stored on Cloudinary, and are updated daily using Heroku Scheduler.

What I wanted to do was have a URL linking to an image (hosted on Cloudinary) that I would periodically update with the support table for that feature. For example, to get the latest image of CSS Grid support, anyone could use this URL: https://caniuse.bitsofco.de/image/css-grid.png

A detailed writeup on how she created those images (and how she updates) takes you through the whole process.
