This is the early v1.0 of a pack that will allow the COVER-IMAGE of a page to be set using formulas.
For now the Action Image( Doc, Page, ImageUrl, Token) is ready to use.
The goal is to be able to use the COVER-IMAGE of a page as a Dashboard display, showing graphics generated by the formulas, tables and values in your doc.
In future releases we will add the following actions
- Svg() - to render SVG drawing code onto the cover-image
- Text() - to render the given text (setting font-face, font-size, text-color and background-color etc.
- Combine() - mixes images, text and icons to display on the cover-image
- P5() - renders P5 drawing code onto the cover-image
Html() - to use HTML/CSS to define the cover-image
These are all implemented as ACTIONS because the uploading of a cover-image is a significant load on the Coda API and servers, and there is a delay of tens of seconds before the image is displayed.
So its only intended to be used very infrequently to create and display a graphical dashboard etc that is only updated daily for example.
