Legify Legicon

Node.js-based GitHub-like Identicon implementation using Keccak32.

Client-side

CLI

Installation

$ npm install legicon

Unless previously installed you'll need Cairo.

Example

var Legicon = require('legicon');

var UserLegicon = Legicon("userid");

console.log('<img src="' + UserLegicon.toDataURL() + '" />');

API

Legicon exposes some API-functions from the underlying Canvas module.

Legicon#pngStream()

To create a PNGStream simply call Legicon.pngStream(), and the stream will start to emit data events, finally emitting end when finished. If an exception occurs the error event is emitted. See examples/TCP/pngStream.js for an example.

var fs = require('fs')
  , out = fs.createWriteStream(__dirname + '/text.png')
  , stream = Legicon.pngStream();

stream.on('data', function(chunk){
  out.write(chunk);
});

stream.on('end', function(){
  console.log('saved png');
});

Currently only sync streaming is supported, however we plan on supporting async streaming as well (of course :) ). Until then the Legicon#toBuffer(callback) alternative is async utilizing eio_custom().

Legicon#jpegStream() and Legicon#syncJPEGStream()

You can likewise create a JPEGStream by calling Legicon.jpegStream() with some optional parameters; functionality is otherwise identical to pngStream(). See examples/TCP/jpegStream.js for an example.

Note: At the moment, jpegStream() is the same as syncJPEGStream(), both are synchronous

var stream = Legicon.jpegStream({
    bufsize: 4096 // output buffer size in bytes, default: 4096 
  , quality: 75 // JPEG quality (0-100) default: 75
  , progressive: false // true for progressive compression, default: fals
});

Legicon#toBuffer()

A call to Legicon#toBuffer() will return a node Buffer instance containing all of the PNG data. See examples/TCP/buffer.js for an example.

Legicon.toBuffer();

Legicon#toBuffer() async

Optionally we may pass a callback function to Legicon#toBuffer(), and this process will be performed asynchronously, and will callback(err, buf).

Legicon.toBuffer(function(err, buf){

});
