About autogenerated title images

Any recommendation on how to reimplement DEV's feature of autogenerating title images?

I understand not including in Forem the same exact implementation used by DEV for branding purposes, but at the same time showing the same site-wide image on social media for all posts that don't have their own image really worsens their "linkability" on social media.

More in general I would love to have a guide that explains how to easily produce a an image of the rails app from a fork AND how to keep up with official updates (in case pulling from upstream is not enough). I'd be happy to open source all my changes & upstream any useful addition (like autogenerated title images), while being able to easily hack minor changes to the main layout for my purposes.

Are you referring to these kinds of images?
