React Random Avatars

React Random Avatars is a simple and easy-to-use React component that generates random avatars based on a provided name for your application. The generated avatar is unique and consistent for each name, which makes it suitable for user profile images or any other use case where a visual representation of a name is needed.


You can install the React Random Avatars component using npm:

npm install react-random-avatars


Here's a quick example of how to use the RandomAvatar component in your React application:

import { RandomAvatar } from "react-random-avatars";

function App({ name }) {
  return (
      <RandomAvatar name={name} size={40} />

export default App;

This mode allows you to provide your own custom pattern to create an avatar. The pattern is a 2D array of colors representing the avatar's design. When selecting this mode, you must also provide a value for the pattern prop.
