Svelte Avatar - Flowbite

Use the avatar component to show a visual representation of a user profile using an image element or SVG object based on multiple styles and sizes

The avatar component can be used as a visual identifier for a user profile on your website and you can use the examples from Flowbite to modify the styles and sizes of these components using the utility classes from Tailwind CSS.

Setup #

Import Avatar. If you are using the user dropdown, import Dropdown, DropdownHeader, DropdownItem, DropdownDivider. If you are using tooltip for avatar import Tooltip.

  • Svelte
  import { Avatar, Dropdown, DropdownHeader, DropdownItem, DropdownDivider, Tooltip } from 'flowbite-svelte';

Default avatar #

Use this example to create a circle and rounded avatar on an image element.

  • Svelte
<div class="flex space-x-4 rtl:space-x-reverse">
  <Avatar src="/images/profile-picture-2.webp" />
  <Avatar src="/images/profile-picture-2.webp" rounded />

Bordered #

You can apply a border around the avatar component.

If you can use the ring-{color} class from Tailwind CSS to modify ring color.

  • Svelte
<Avatar src="/images/profile-picture-2.webp" border />
<Avatar src="/images/profile-picture-2.webp" border class="ring-red-400 dark:ring-red-300" />

Placeholder #

When there is no custom image available a placeholder is displayed.

  • Svelte
<Avatar />
<Avatar rounded />
<Avatar border />
<Avatar rounded border />

Placeholder initials #

This example can be used to show the initials of the user’s first and last name as a placeholder when no profile picture is available.

  • Svelte

Avatar tooltip #

Use this example to show a tooltip when hovering over the avatar.

  • Svelte
  import { Avatar, Tooltip } from 'flowbite-svelte';

<Avatar data-name="Jese Leos" rounded src="/images/profile-picture-1.webp" />
<Avatar data-name="Robert Gouth" rounded src="/images/profile-picture-2.webp" />
<Avatar data-name="Bonnie Green" rounded src="/images/profile-picture-3.webp" />
<Tooltip triggeredBy="[data-name]" on:show={(e) => (name =}>{name}</Tooltip>

Dot indicator #

Use a dot element relative to the avatar component as an indicator for the user (eg. online or offline status).

  • Svelte
  import { Avatar, Indicator } from 'flowbite-svelte';

<Avatar src="/images/profile-picture-3.webp" dot={{ color: 'red' }} />
<Avatar src="/images/profile-picture-3.webp" dot={{ placement: 'top-right', color: 'red' }} rounded />
<Avatar src="/images/profile-picture-5.webp" dot={{ placement: 'bottom-right', color: 'green' }} />
<Avatar src="/images/profile-picture-5.webp" dot={{ placement: 'bottom-right' }} rounded />

<Avatar dot={{}} />

Stacked #

Use this example if you want to stack a group of users by overlapping the avatar components.

  • Svelte
<div class="flex mb-5">
  <Avatar src="/images/profile-picture-1.webp" stacked />
  <Avatar src="/images/profile-picture-2.webp" stacked />
  <Avatar src="/images/profile-picture-3.webp" stacked />
  <Avatar stacked />
<div class="flex">
  <Avatar src="/images/profile-picture-1.webp" stacked />
  <Avatar src="/images/profile-picture-2.webp" stacked />
  <Avatar src="/images/profile-picture-3.webp" stacked />
  <Avatar stacked href="/" class="bg-gray-700 text-white hover:bg-gray-600 text-sm">+99</Avatar>

Avatar text #

This example can be used if you want to show additional information in the form of text elements such as the user’s name and join date.

<Avatar id="user-drop" src="/images/profile-picture-3.webp" class="cursor-pointer" dot={{ color: 'green' }} />
<Dropdown triggeredBy="#user-drop">
    <span class="block text-sm">Bonnie Green</span>
    <span class="block truncate text-sm font-medium"></span>
  <DropdownDivider />
  <DropdownItem>Sign out</DropdownItem>
