Hi everyone, I tried this tutorial, How to Create Temporary User Avatars - Adalo Resources, where I load a temporary avatar (based on the users initials) from an external url.
For instance: https://api.dicebear.com/5.x/initials/svg?seed=Felix
On web it works flawless, but on iOS it doesn’t show this external picture.
Does anybody know if this is restricted by Apple?
Thanks for any help or suggestion.
Out of curiosity I’ve tested this and I can confirm that the problem exists: avatars from dicebar are not shown in iOS app build (but are shown on web).
I’ve investigated the issue a bit and it turns out the problem is related to displaying .svg images. For example:
The last one generates JPG files, unlike Dicebar and UI-avatars. So I can conclude that the problem is related to svg. Additional proof for this - when I try to use static SVG file URL (https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2f/Google_2015_logo.svg), it works in PWA, but still doesn’t work on iOS.
I believe that only Adalo can fix this so submitting support ticket is worthwhile: Submit a Support Ticket
Hope this helps.
Wow, thanks again for investigating this @Victor. That’s really helpful. I’ll create a support ticket for Adalo and hope they will fix it soon
In the meantime, I am open for good dicebear alternatives that create jpeg avatars with the initials of the name.
