Identicon

example output

a cute little idea stolen from rbishop. provides a function for generating an “identicon” (an icon produced from the hash of a given string). please feel free to steal from me as well! ^_^

this version is a little cleaner and uses softer, “web-safe” foreground colours on a customisable background.

compile in the usual manner:

mix deps.get
mix compile

and then if you just want to test it out (with your name or whatever XD), try something like:

iex -S mix
iex(1)> File.write "Elixir.png", Identicon.gen("Elixir", {36, 32, 36})

which produces:
