Avatar Creator for Android & iOS
Let users create avatars on their Android and iOS devices.
Users can create Ready Player Me avatars seamlessly in a WebView displayed within a Unity application.
Ready Player Me SDK. You need the Ready Player Me SDK for Unity installed in your project to retrieve avatars. See the Quickstart guide for instructions.
Deploying the app. In order to test your WebView app, you have to deploy it to a physical or virtual device. See the Unity documentation on how to do that.
Creating a Scene with a WebView in your Unity project is the same for Android and iOS.
- 1.Create or open your Unity project.
- 2.Import the Ready Player Me SDK into your project, if you haven't done so already.
- 3.Navigate to Assets > Plugins > Ready Player Me > Examples > Webview Examples.
- 4.Open the WebviewExample Scene.
- 5.In the Hierarchy, notice the WebviewTest game object. It has a WebViewExample script component, as well as a Canvas with some buttons.
- 6.Open and examine the WebviewExample script. Notice the following.
- Variables for a
GameObject avatar, as well as fields for the UI elements.
Start()adds Listeners to the buttons.
DisplayWebView()creates a Webview for the Avatar Creator if there isn't one.
OnAvatarCreated(). Once the avatar has been created by the user, this callback destroys any existing avatar, instantiates an
AvatarLoader, sets callbacks for success and failure, and then loads the current avatar.
HideWebView()hides the WebView.
Destroy()cleans up the listeners.

Publication follows the the standard procedure for publishing Unity projects to iOS.
Publishing for iOS is different from publishing for platforms such as Windows or macOS. Due to restrictions in access to development tools, Unity can only create an Xcode project for an iOS game or app and not build the binary directly.
