Blockies

A tiny library for generating blocky identicons.

Sample blockies image

Demo page

Use

var icon = blockies.create({ // All options are optional
    seed: 'randstring', // seed used to generate icon data, default: random
    color: '#dfe', // to manually specify the icon color, default: random
    bgcolor: '#aaa', // choose a different background color, default: white
    size: 15, // width/height of the icon in blocks, default: 10
    scale: 3 // width/height of each block in pixels, default: 5
});

document.body.appendChild(icon); // icon is a canvas element

In the above example the icon will be 15x15 blocks, and each block will be 3x3 pixels. The icon canvas will be 45x45 pixels.

Notes

The defaults of size 10 and scale 5 generate 50x50 pixel icons. Below are some standard sizes that work well.

  • 24x24 {size: 8, scale: 3}
  • 48x48 {size: 12, scale: 4}

Alternative Styles

Build

node build

All this does is minify blockies.js to blockies.min.js.
