Great work :-)
(Way better than the usually used random avatar monsters we see around)

We love the cat generator here at home ! I have already adopted 583f13c94f5f5 :-).

Cool! I found one I really like through random generating (583f7b02633e4), but now I can't find a name that will give me that one!

Cute writer one! What name would you like? :)

Hmm... I'm not sure... what names are there that already give that catvatar?

I can link 583f7b02633e4 to the nickname you want :-)

I'm not good at coming up with nicknames. :/
How about "Misty Tales"?

(Incidentally, the capcha I just got said 'k1ty', almost like 'kitty'!)

Ok for Misty Tales. It should work now :)

(ps: oh oh, nice for the capcha! :3 )

Hmm... didn't work. :(

Maybe I need to choose a name without a space in it?

link   David Revoy   Author , - Reply

Ha, my fault! Sorry, now it's working, with and without space. :)

Oh, there are multiple easter eggs in generator, by the looks of it. Nice work by the way!

I might have peeked at the source to satisfy my curiousity.

Haha :D Now I know the words you tried to type in the generator xD

Hi David. Thanks for the Cat avatar generator! I really like mine. The markings on its blue fur look like Oriental brush strokes. And I like the typewriter and monocle -- they reinforce the cat's image as a curious, investigative writer and editor!

By the way, this is my Chinese name. My English name produced a different cat avatar. It's exactly like your Carrot avatar, David, except that mine has a blue scarf wrapped around its neck so its mouth is covered haha.

I really appreciate your fight to prevent Google from exploiting your readers' data and privacy and the sacrifice it entailed. Thanks a lot for that. Hope you have fun during the holidays!

Thank you Yi Jing!

I'm hoping at some point that there are easter eggs for Truffel and maybe even the correct cat-colors for Yuzu and Mango.

Also hoping for "Pepper" to have a big floppy hat and a mini-broom.

Wanted to suggest that when checking for string equality for easter eggs that you make the check case-insensitive.

Might also be worth parsing some of the bad word lists freely available on Github for the obscenity detection. Not sure if its worth extending to sub-strings (which causes you to run into the Scunthorpe problem) or common substitutions.

Hey pop; if you are motivated by continuing the project, feel free to clone/git it, and add the features, more easter eggs, etc... I'll be happy to keep hosting it. Here I need to focus now on episode 20 of Pepper&Carrot. If I start to tweak more this code, I'll spend month in it. ;-)

Wow! This is great; much better than those boring default images, and it is free!

Thanks a lot!

It's nice that you care about privacy. And I'm happy something so awesome came out of it :>

I like "cat", But i'm sad "Tux" and "Kiki" aren't easter eggs ;P

Merci David

Aurélien Gâteau à créer un générateur d'avatar pour android (http://agateau.com/2016/cat-avatar-gene … droid-app/)
Pour les libristes, il est disponible via f-droid (https://f-droid.org/repository/browse/? … tgenerator)

Just wonder if anyone has created a WP plugin for it?

David, congratulations for your switch to more privacy friendly options.

I did a Telegram Bot to generate avatars taking advantage of your "API": http://telegram.me/RevoyCatGenBot

I've added the link to this page, so it should drive some traffic here.

Your Avatar Generator is a success (at a modest scale) in Telegram, the Bot had around 1800 requests so far and 4 (over 5) stars on the store bot :D

Thank you for the news! Good to hear users likes it.

Note: I also made a new version, a bit more 'cold' and not funny, for my other blog on www.davidrevoy.com :

I just created a WP avatars plugin to display those cute cats. https://wordpress.org/plugins/cat-generator-avatars/

It passes the test on my machine, but I know it's buggy. I appreciate if anyone could run it and leave feedback about any issues.
