Avatars for Android Maven Central

This project provides a easy way to build avatar compositions for Android applications, as you can see in the screenshot.

Screenshot

Usage

Declare it into your pom.xml

<dependency>
    <groupId>net.sectorsieteg</groupId>
    <artifactId>avatars</artifactId>
    <version>1.0.0</version>
    <type>aar</type>
</dependency>

Or into your build.gradle

dependencies {
    compile 'net.sectorsieteg:avatars:1.0.0'
}

How to Use

Inside the layout, you only needs a ImageView in order to show the avatar.

    <ImageView
        android:id="@+id/avatar"
        android:layout_height="fill_parent"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"/>

The AvatarDrawableFactory will abstract you about how the avatars are built. We will be able to create a rounded or a squared avatar from this entry point.

For the squared avatars depending of the number of images passed to the factory, a composition for one, two, three or four will be created. Returning the specific implementation for that case.

There are this types of compositions:

  • RoundedAvatarDrawable
  • BorderedRoundedAvatarDrawable
  • SquaredAvatarDrawable
  • DoubleSquaredAvatarDrawable
  • TripleSquaredAvatarDrawable
  • QuadrupleSquaredAvatarDrawable
BitmapFactory.Options options = new BitmapFactory.Options();
options.inMutable = false;
Bitmap avatar = BitmapFactory.decodeResource(getResources(), R.drawable.avatar, options);

AvatarDrawableFactory avatarFactory = new AvatarDrawableFactory(getResources());

Drawable avatarDrawable = avatarFactory.getSquaredAvatarDrawable(avatar, avatar);
ImageView avatarView = (ImageView)rootView.findViewById(R.id.avatar);
avatarView.setImageDrawable(avatarDrawable);
