Gets a random avatar URL from a collection of different avatar generation services.

Build status Azure DevOps tests Quality Gate Status Maintainability Rating MIT License npm Tweet about this


Install the package from npm using the following command.

npm i give-me-an-avatar

After installing, simply import Give Me an Avatar in your file.

const avatars = require("give-me-an-avatar");

Consume the giveMeAnAvatar() API to get an avatar URL that you can use directly as an image. You can either call the method without any parameters or supply the settings object to customize your avatar a bit. All settings are pretty self-explanatory and are not mandatory. For example:

let image = avatars.giveMeAnAvatar({
                Name: "John Smith",
                Size: 128

The image variable will have the avatar image URL.

If you'd like to consume this package via a CDN, please see this demo.

  • I'm not using avataaars separately since avatars.dicebear.com includes avataaars.
  • Placekitten image might appear broken at times in the table above, however, the image service itself runs fine.


  • All the avatar services used in this npm package are outlined in the table above.
