Invatar

Invatar provides an "API" for generating fully customizable SVG and image avatars with small text. Inspired from many messaging apps.

Por que? Por que no?

Demo

Website: https://invatar0.appspot.com/

Screenshots

Defaults

svg/a.jpg svg/kb.jpg svg/md.jpg

Customized

svg/a.jpg?s=150 svg/kb.jpg?s=150&color=yellow svg/md.jpg?s=150&bg=%23E5E7E9&color=%23626262
Custom width/height (px) Custom text color Custom text color + background color. (%23 == encodeURIComponent('#'))
svg/abcd.jpg?s=150&font_size=50 svg/kb.jpg?s=150&font_family=Monospace svg/md.jpg?s=150&h=my-user-id
Custom font size (in px) Custom font family Provide a unique identifier with h. This is useful when you don't want two intials (different users?) hash to the same value (resulting in the same background color).

Use Cases

  • Easier to identify users
  • Friendlier than a "No avatar" picture
  • Background colors are always consistent
  • Can use as a fallback picture for Gravatar (?default= flag) and other similar services
