Generating Awesome User Avatars is Easy

Hey Developers

Whenever user signups, we as a developer either ask them to upload an avatar or add a simple avatar placeholder that looks too boring.

So, today I'll be sharing, how you guys can create an amazing avatar for your users.

Let's Start

There's a tool name DiceBear Avatars which will help you create an amazing avatar using the user's name. And this is too easy to use. This will generate different avatars based on your options.
