Parameters

fullname : the full name from which the initials and the color will be computed. Initials are extracted taking the first letter of each word, separated by a space or an hyphen. If there is more, only the 3 first initials are kept. For example, Foo Bar gives FB, My Foo-Bar gives MFB, FOO gives F and My Fantastic Vue Component gives MFV. If not provided, fullname defaults to '##'.

size : the size of the sticker to generate, in pixels. If not provided, the size defaults to 48 pixels. The font size inside the avatar is computed from its overall size (half if 1 or 2 letters, third for 3 letters).

image : the url of the image to fit in the avatar sticker. If provided not empty, initials will not show and the image wil be shown. Be careful that if the provided image url is wrong, the component has its size but shows nothing.

radius : percentage of the overall size to show the rounded corners of the avatar. Provide a number beetween 0 and 50 : at 0%, the avatar will be a square, at 50% it will be exactly circular. This percentage defaults to 50 if not provided.

color : If provided, overides the computed color for the initials based avatar. Just provide a CSS color (named, hex or rgba fits).
