Hey hunters! 😺 I needed an anonymous avatar system for an app I'm making. I always loved the delightful little avatars in Yik Yak, and was shocked that there wasn't a service to generate something similar. So I built a teeny tiny little service to generate these icons on the fly. The API is super simple, just call https://icotar.com/avatar/:hash where :hash can be anything you like. Here's my name as an Icotar https://icotar.com/avatar/craig. Best of all, it's open source. The service is free to use in your apps and websites. Enjoy! 🎁

For example: /-a:hash : could be the Yik Yak collection /-b:hash : could be emojis /-c:hash : could be the more used GIFs on telegram ...


Sim-pli-ci-ty!! You just need to paste the link and add any :hash you want..


I will be so fan to have some kind of categories in these avatars

Yes! Right now the only endpoint is /avatar but planning on adding a few more in the future. Thanks for checking it out! πŸ™

Pretty nifty little tool that can be used to easily generate random icons.


Extremely easy to use, fast and the generated avatars look great.


None that I can think of.

Awesome Darren! Can't wait to see what you make with Icotar!
