Meta information

The "Meta" tab in the Info panel shows a site's meta information as well as social card previews. Get a quick overview of the way your site is interpreted by bots and shown in rich snippets.

Site meta information

Polypane highlights some of the more important meta information, like title, favicon, viewport declaration, canonical url, description and charset, and divides the rest up in different lists: Open graph tags, Twitter tags, Oembed info, Other meta tags and Icons.

Warnings

Polypane will give you recommendations for your title and description, warn you of missing but recommended value, and highlight any duplicate meta tags.

Rich snippets/social card previews

social media previews for Doka

Polypane automatically generates previews for the following:

  • Google search result
  • Twitter card
  • Facebook card
  • Slack preview
  • Linkedin card
  • Discord card
  • Telegram (web)

These previews match the actual way they are displayed on each of these sites (including dark mode where supported), using the available data in the same way each social media site does.

They are both pixel perfect and character perfect, meaning that the text that fits in them will render the same, so you can be 100% sure that your meta previews look the same on the live social media site and in Polypane.
