The core React component for Avataaars Generator developed by Fang-Pen Lin, based on the Sketch library Avataaars designed by Pablo Stanley.

Features

  • SVG based

Usage

First, you need to install the avataaars component package, here you run

yarn add avataaars

or

npm install avataaars --save

if you are using npm. Then, in your React app, import the Avataaar component and put it where you like it to be, for example

import * as React from 'react'
import Avatar from 'avataaars'

export default class MyComponent extends React.Component {
  render () {
    return 
      <div>
        Your avatar:
        <Avatar
          style={{width: '100px', height: '100px'}}
          avatarStyle='Circle'
          topType='LongHairMiaWallace'
          accessoriesType='Prescription02'
          hairColor='BrownDark'
          facialHairType='Blank'
          clotheType='Hoodie'
          clotheColor='PastelBlue'
          eyeType='Happy'
          eyebrowType='Default'
          mouthType='Smile'
          skinColor='Light'
        />
      </div>
  }
}

To showcase individual pieces of the avatar you can use the Piece component, for example:

import * as React from 'react'
import {Piece} from 'avataaars';

export default class MyComponent extends React.Component {
  render () {
    return 
      <div>
        <Piece pieceType="mouth" pieceSize="100" mouthType="Eating"/>
        <Piece pieceType="eyes" pieceSize="100" eyeType="Dizzy"/>
        <Piece pieceType="eyebrows" pieceSize="100" eyebrowType="RaisedExcited"/>
        <Piece pieceType="accessories" pieceSize="100" accessoriesType="Round"/>
        <Piece pieceType="top" pieceSize="100" topType="LongHairFro" hairColor="Red"/>
        <Piece pieceType="facialHair" pieceSize="100" facialHairType="BeardMajestic"/>
        <Piece pieceType="clothe" pieceSize="100" clotheType="Hoodie" clotheColor="Red"/>
        <Piece pieceType="graphics" pieceSize="100" graphicType="Skull" />
        <Piece pieceType="skin" pieceSize="100" skinColor="Brown" />
      </div>
  }
}
