Avatar and Avatar Group

The new Avatar and Avatar Group components allow you to easily represent users in your app.

Avatar allows you to display an image with an optional label and caption. The image URL will default to the current user’s profile photo (a new property, {{ current_user.profilePhotoUrl }}) and you can optionally set fallback text for when there isn’t a url available — if that text looks like a user's full name, we’ll render just their initials. Choose from a selection of avatar size options, extra small (16px) to extra large (48px), and customize label, alignment, and more!

Avatar Group displays several avatars together. Configure the maximum number of avatars to display, and the last avatar will display “+N” when there are more. Like our new input components, these also offer expanded style editor support.
