React Native User Avatar

React Native component for a user avatar with fallback to colored initials.

A bare-bones user avatar display with support for falling back to using the user's initials on a colored background as the avatar.


npm install --save react-native-user-avatar or yarn add react-native-user-avatar


  <UserAvatar size="100" name="Avishay Bar" />
  <UserAvatar size="100" name="Avishay Bar" src="" />
  <UserAvatar size="50" name="John Doe" colors={['#ccc', '#fafafa', '#ccaabb']}/>
  <UserAvatar size="50" name="John Doe" />
  <UserAvatar size="50" name="Jane Doe" color="#000" />

User-defined Image-Component

It is also possible to use another Image-Component than the built-in <Image>.

  <UserAvatar size="50" name="John Doe" component={CachedImage} />

The fallback avatar's color may be set by passing in the color prop, or you can customize the range of colors
used by passing in an array of colors. The component uses a simple calculation to consistently use the same
color for the same user's name every time.
