From the developer

If your organization's policy allows, and you don't mind, I request that you keep credit enabled. Remember: my goal for this project is get more networks to use looking glasses to make all of our lives easier. Because it's primarily other network operators who will use this tool to begin with, I'd love for any operators that use your looking glass to know where they can get their own.

If you're not familiar with OpenGraph, it's the thing that generates the pretty pictures, titles, and descriptions for links when you post them to sites/tools such as Facebook, Twitter, Slack, etc.

By default, this Opengraph image is set. If you define one with image, hyperglass will automatically generate an Opengraph image using the following methodology:

  • If the image is already 1200x630, it will be used
  • If the image is or is not 1200x630, but contains transparency (like in a .png formatted image), it will be converted to a JPEG file with the black used as the background color.
