Agoticon is a silly little program written in Golang that generates a unique avatar, complete with a unique color scheme, based on any text string. The main aim was to create a slightly more visually interesting version of Identicons. Although Agoticons do contain all of the originally provided information like Identicons do, it is much harder to retrieve. They are only meant for use as account avatars, not as data storage.

Agoticon is used for new user accounts on, and you can use it too! Have a look at the API section below to see how, or for more complex integrations check out the Github repository!

To use the Agoticon API simply make a request to<yourstringhere>.png. For example if I wanted the Agoticon for a user called Banana I would make a request to and set the response as the src of an img tag.
