Quickstart

Load your personal Ready Player Me avatar in your React project in less than 5 minutes.

Before you begin

  • Sign in to Studio (Developer Dashboard) and copy your subdomain. This will allow you to create and load an avatar in your domain at a later step.
You can explore the implemented package on Codesandbox

1. Install the react-avatar-creator package

Ready Player Me - React Avatar Creator is available as an npm package. Run the following command in the root of your React project.
npm i @readyplayerme/react-avatar-creator

2. Configure the AvatarCreator

AvatarCreator component can take an editorConfig parameter, which helps you with this. The component uses an iframe to render the underlying Avatar Creator, and passes these parameters in the URL.
parameter

effect
language
string
Sets the default language of the creator.
bodyType
"halfbody" | "fullbody"
Instead of select page, starts with given option.
quickStart
boolean

clearCache
boolean
If disabled previous avatar will not be loaded.

3. Receive the Avatar URL from AvatarCreator

After installing the npm package into your project, you can import the AvatarCreator Component and pass your subdomain as a parameter to load the Ready Player Me in your React project. You should also add an onAvatarExported callback to the component to receive the avatar's URL when exported.
import { AvatarCreator, AvatarCreatorConfig, AvatarExportedEvent } from '@readyplayerme/react-avatar-creator';
const config: AvatarCreatorConfig = {
clearCache: true,
bodyType: 'fullbody',
quickStart: false,
language: 'en',
};
const style = { width: '100%', height: '100vh', border: 'none' };
export default function App() {
const handleOnAvatarExported = (event: AvatarExportedEvent) => {
console.log(`Avatar URL is: ${event.data.url}`);
};
return (
<>
<AvatarCreator subdomain="YOUR-SUBDOMAIN" config={config} style={style} onAvatarExported={handleOnAvatarExported} />
</>
);
}
If you want to sign up later, you can use demo as subdomain parameter.

4. Install Visage package to render your avatar

Ready Player Me Visage package enables you to render your avatar in the browser. This package is available as an npm package.
