  • initially package was build for Laravel 5 but it can work as standalone library too.

  • Gravatar
  • Facebook
  • Twitter

'aliases' => [
    'Avatarer' => Artdarek\Avatarer\Support\Laravel\Facades\Avatarer::class,
],

Usage

Initialize

To ininitialize Avatarer call make() method and pass Provider name (service name like Gravatar/Facebook/Twitter):

<?php
	use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatar\Provider\Gravatar;
	...

	// create avatarer object using Gravatar provider
 	$avatar = Avatarer::make(Gravatar::class);
?>
<?php
	use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatar\Provider\Facebook;
	...

	// create avatarer object using Facebook provider
 	$avatar = Avatarer::make(Facebook::class);
?>
<?php
	use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatar\Provider\Twitter;
	...

	// create avatarer object using Gravatar provider
 	$avatar = Avatarer::make(Twitter::class);
?>

If you want to use Avatarer library outside of Laravel framework or you don't want to use Avatarer Facade in your Laravel application, you can do this:

<?php
	use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatar\Provider\Gravatar;
	...

	// create avatarer object
 	$avatar = new \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatarer;
 	$avatar->make(Gravatar::class);
?>

or

<?php
	use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatar\Provider\Gravatar;
	...

	// create avatarer object
 	$avatar = (new \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatarer)->make(Gravatar::class);
?>

or

<?php
	use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatarer;
	use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatar\Provider\Gravatar;
	...

	// create avatarer object
 	$avatar = (new Avatarer)->make(Gravatar::class);
?>

Setting a user

Generating avatar with default settings is very simple and all you have to do is to call user() method with user id as a parameter (each Provider can identify user differently via email/id/screenname etc.):

For Gravatar we use Email:

<?php

	use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatar\Provider\Gravatar;
	...

	// user email
	$email = "example@user.email";

	// create avatarer object
 	$avatar = Avatarer::make(Gravatar::class);
 	$avatar->user( $email );

	// get url
	$url = $avatar->get();

?>

For Facebook we use UserID:

<?php
	use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatar\Provider\Facebook;
	...

	// user id
	$userID = "838979896180389";

	// create avatarer object
 	$avatar = Avatarer::make(Facebook::class);
 	$avatar->user( $userID );

	// get url
	$url = $avatar->get();
?>

For Twitter we use user ScreenName:

<?php
	use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatar\Provider\Twitter;
	...

	// user id
	$userScreenName = "artdarek";

	// create avatarer object
 	$avatar = Avatarer::make(Twitter::class);
 	$avatar->user( $userScreenName );

	// get url
	$url = $avatar->get();
?>

Setting avatar size

If you want to set a size of avatar that should be returned you can use size() method. This method can take two parameters width and height and both are optional (notice that not all providers will require or use both width and height, for example Gravatar expects only width).

For Gravatar:

<?php
	// create avatarer object
 	$avatar = Avatarer::make(Gravatar::class);
 	$avatar->user( $email );
 	$avatar->size( 200 );

	// get url
	$url = $avatar->get();
?>

For Facebook:

<?php
	// create avatarer object
 	$avatar = Avatarer::make(Facebook::class);
 	$avatar->user( $userID );
 	$avatar->size( 200, 200 );

	// get url
	$url = $avatar->get();
?>

Setting provider-specific options

If you want to customize avatar a little bit more you can set some additional parameters using options() method.

For Gravatar:

<?php
	// create avatarer object
 	$avatar = Avatarer::make(Gravatar::class);
 	$avatar->user( $email );
 	$avatar->size( 200 );
 	$avatar->options([
		'default' => 'mm', // Url to your default avatar image or [ 404 | mm | identicon | monsterid | wavatar | blank | retro ]
		'forceDefault' => null, // If for some reason you wanted to force the default image to always load [ y ]
		'ratings' => 'g', // Maximum rating (inclusive) [ g | pg | r | x ]
 	]);

	// get url
	$url = $avatar->get();
?>

For Facebook:

<?php
 	$avatar = Avatarer::make(Facebook::class);
 	$avatar->user( $userID );
 	$avatar->size( 200, 200 );
 	$avatar->options([
 		'type' => 'square', // Type of avatar [ small, normal, album, large, square ]
 	]);
	$url = $avatar->get();
?>

Methods chaining

If thats more convinient for you you can chain all methods like below:

<?php
 	$url = Avatarer::make(Gravatar::class)
 		->user( $email )
 		->size(220)
 		->options([
			'default' => 'mm'
			'ratings' => 'g'
 		])->get();
?>

Output Formating

Default string output

With Avatarer by using get() method you can get url string of user avatar:

<?php
 	$avatar = Avatarer::make(Gravatar::class)->user( $email )->size('200');
	$url = $avatar->get();
?>

Changing output format

If you wish to get output in different format like Array, Json or even HTML code you can do that by calling get() method with Output object that implements OutputInterface as a parameter:

To get Array (add use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Output\ToArray; at the top of your class):

<?php
	use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatar\Provider\Gravatar;
    use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Output\ToArray;
    ...

 	$avatar = Avatarer::make(Gravatar::cass)->user( $email )->size('200');
	$url = $avatar->get(new ToArray);
?>

To get JSON (add use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Output\ToJson; at the top of your class):

<?php
	use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatar\Provider\Gravatar;
    use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Output\ToJson;
    ...

 	$avatar = Avatarer::make(Gravatar::cass)->user( $email )->size('200');
	$url = $avatar->get(new ToJson);
?>

To get Object (add use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Output\ToObject; at the top of your class):

<?php
	use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatar\Provider\Gravatar;
    use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Output\ToObject;
    ...

 	$avatar = Avatarer::make(Gravatar::cass)->user( $email )->size('200');
	$url = $avatar->get(new ToObject);
?>

To get HTML (add use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Output\ToHtml; at the top of your class):

<?php
	use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatar\Provider\Gravatar;
    use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Output\ToHtml;
    ...

 	$avatar = Avatarer::make(Gravatar::cass)->user( $email )->size('200');
	$url = $avatar->get(new ToHtml);
?>

If you want to have more controll over returned HTML code you can pass array with additional attributes via ToHtml() constructor, for examle:

<?php
	use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Avatar\Provider\Gravatar;
    use \Artdarek\Avatarer\Output\ToHtml;
    ...

 	$avatar = Avatarer::make(Gravatar::cass)->user( $email )->size('200');
	$url = $avatar->get(
		new ToHtml([
			'class' => 'avatar',
			'id' => 'user123' 
		])
	);
?>
