In this tutorial, we will learn how to create a banner for a positive customer review of a restaurant using Doppio's template feature. We'll start with a sample HTML template and see how to use Doppio's API to generate a screenshot of this banner.


Step 1: Create the HTML Template

For this, create an account on Doppio and choose the default banner template with a few adjustments. Here is the HTML of the template:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>Example Screenshot</title>

<body>
<div class="screen">

        </strong>
        <small>John Doe - <em>Yesterday</em></small>
    </h1>
</div>


<style>
     html, body {
        margin: 0;
        padding: 0;
        height: auto;    
    }
    body {
        font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
        background: #AAA0D4;
    }
    .screen {
        display: flex;
        height: 100vh;
        width: 100vw;
        justify-content: center;
        align-items: flex-start;
        color: white;

        background-size: cover;
    }
    h1 {

        font-size: 30px;
        line-height: 1.2;
        background: linear-gradient(90deg, rgba(23, 18, 43, 1), 80%, rgba(89, 53, 221, 0.8));
        & strong, & small {
            display: block;
        }
        & small {
            margin-top: 1rem;
            font-weight: 300;
            font-size: 0.7rem;
        }
        & em {
            opacity: 0.7;
        }
    }
</style>
</body>
</html>

You can see a screenshot of the template interface here to verify your rendering.

You also need to configure your settings: the rendering parameters and the default data.

We aim for an output format of WEBP at 512x512 (perfect for Instagram) with a resolution factor of 2. However, you can choose other formats such as JPEG, PNG, and more.

Here is the information:

Parameters:

{"page":{"screenshot":{"clip":{"x":0,"y":0,"width":512,"height":512},"type":"webp","quality":100,"omitBackground":false,"captureBeyondViewport":true}},"launch":{"defaultViewport":{"width":512,"height":512,"deviceScaleFactor":2}}}

Default Data:

{"DOP_NAME":"The most memorable and best meal of my entire life."}

This is where the text of the restaurant review is found :)

You can test the rendering with the "Real Render" button in the interface.


Step 2: Configure the API Request

To generate the banner with dynamic data, we need to prepare a POST request to the Doppio API. Here’s how to configure this request.

Example API Request (Node.js):

First, ensure you have axios installed in your project:

npm install axios

Then, you can use the following Node.js code to make the API request:

const axios = require('axios');
const templateId = '80d89528-5d3d-4310-be1a-efc349389841'; // Replace with your own templateId
const apiUrl = 'https://api.doppio.sh/v1/template/direct';
const requestData = {
    templateId: templateId,
    templateData: {
        DOP_NAME: 'The most memorable and best meal of my entire life.' // Replace {* DOP_NAME *} with "The most memorable and best meal of my entire life."
    }
};

try {
    const renderResponse = await axios.post(apiUrl, requestData, {
        headers: {
            'Content-Type': 'application/json'
        }
    });
    
    console.log('Request ID:', renderResponse.data.doppioRequestId);
    console.log('Render Status:', renderResponse.data.renderStatus);
    
    if (renderResponse.data.renderStatus === 'SUCCESS') {
        const imageUrl = renderResponse.data.documentUrl;
        console.log('Document URL:', imageUrl);

        // Post the generated image to Instagram (example)
        await postToInstagram(imageUrl);
    } else {
        console.error('Error in rendering the template.');
    }
} catch (error) {
    console.error('Error rendering the template:', error);
}

You can then retrieve the generated image and automatically publish it for example on Instagram.



By following this tutorial, you should be able to create and generate a dynamic banner for a positive customer review of a restaurant using Doppio's template feature. You can customize the HTML template and the injected data to fit your specific needs for further personalization.
