identiconpp  0.4.0
identiconpp Documentation

identiconpp is a library to generate identicons for C++ and C.

You get the images as Magick::Image. This allows you to make all kinds of modifications.

The example images above are generated using example.cpp.

Features

Usage

The HTML reference can be generated with build_doc.sh, if doxygen is installed. It is also available at doc.schlomp.space/identiconpp/.

You need to generate hashes yourself, any hexadecimal string will do. Make sure to use a safe hashing algorithm for sensitive data (not MD5). You can select as many columns and rows as you like, but make sure you have enough entropy. If something seems to be wrong, exceptions will be thrown.

The "sigil" algorithm generates the same results as sigil and pydenticon.

Example

{C++}
// Compile with g++ $(Magick++-config --cppflags --ldflags) -lidenticonpp
#include <identiconpp.hpp>
#include <Magick++/Image.h>
int main()
{
Identiconpp identicon(5, 5, Identiconpp::algorithm::ltr_symmetric,
"ffffff80", { "800000ff" }, { 10, 10 });
Magick::Image img;
img = identicon.generate("55502f40dc8b7c769880b10874abc9d0", 200);
img.write("identicon.png");
}

C interface

This is somewhat experimental. Have a look at example.c and identiconpp_c.h.

It seems to be impossible to use Magick++ and MagickWand in the same library, so the images are returned as base64-encoded strings.

Binary packages are generated automatically for each release in the formats:

They are generated on Debian Stretch 64 bit and signed with my automatic signing key.
