Angular Avatar is a simple and lightweight AngularJS directive that generates a letter's avatar like Microsoft or Google do in their web apps. First letter of each word in a string or a group of initials will be used to generate the avatar. The image of the avatar will be rendered in an html img tag as a real png or jpeg. The image data can be retrieved using javascript to be stored in back-end giving you an initial profile picture in your web or mobile apps when the user does not upload one. Several angular atributes are available to configure the output: size, shape, resolution, colors, etc.

4 Attributes

| option | default | description | | :------------------- | :----- | :--------------------- | | initials | null | Letters that will be rendered inside the avatar. Commonly the initials of first name and last name or a username. One, two or three letters can be used. | | string | null | Here you can put a group of words like a sentence or your complete name. The first letter of each word will be used to generate the avatar's image. | | bind | null | The avatar component will listen for changes in string and initials. If the value of the data source in the controller changes the avatar will change as well. | | max-length | null | Limits the number of characters that the avatar displays. | | width | 45 | An integer that sets the avatar's width and height in pixels using styles. Height of the avatar will be taken from it's width attribute. height attribute doesn't exist. | | bg-color | #000 | This is the background color of the avatar. If not set, the background will be black. You can use regular css color's like color names, hex or rgb. | | text-color | #fff | The color of the letters. Letters will be white if this attribute is not set. Use regular css colors. | | upper-case | false | Just put upper-case="true" and the input string will be transformed into capitals. | | round-shape | false | When set to true the avatar will take a round shape. By default the avatar will have a square shape. | | corner-radius | 0 | Square avatars can have rounded corners using this property. | | picture-resolution | 256 | This attribute sets the real resolution (width and height in pixels) of the picture that this directive generates. width attribute will scale the picture using only styles. | | pixelated | false | If ng-avatar's width is bigger than picture-resolution attribute, the web browser will scale the image and we will get a blurry picture. This attribute deactivates the anti-aliasing effect and you will get a pixelated image. Useful If you want a retro styling. | | wrapper | true | ng-avatar generates an img tag and a div layer that wraps the image. A boolean false value removes the div that wraps the avatar's image. This wrapping div has an special class class="avatar-wrapper" that can be used to apply extra styling. ng-avatar uses this div to generate a round avatar applying extra styles when round-shape attribute is true, round-shape="true" | | class | null | Use this attribute in the same way it is used in common html tags. | | img-class | null | Add an additional class to the generated image. Use the attribute in the same way it is used in common html tags. | | style | null | Use this attribute in the same way it is used in common html tags. | | picture-format | png | Set picture-format="jpeg" and the avatar will be rendered as a jpeg. If not set, png format will be used by default. | | auto-color | false | By default the generated picture will have a black background if no color is assigned. Setting auto-color="true" will automatically assign a color to the avatar's background depending on the combination of characters used. | | use-full-string-for-colors | false | When using auto-color and string, determines the color based on all of the characters in the string, not just the initials | | colors-palette | default colors | Change the palette used by auto-color. You can provide an array in your HTML or via the controller. | | text-shadow | false | This paints an elegant thin shadow around the edges of each letter. |
