Wan't your own personal devBanner?
Now you can have one!
We're building a powerful banner generator over here: https://devrant.com/collabs/...
The first version is up and running, still basic tho.
You can generate your own by calling this URL:
You'll have to replace "Kimmax" with your devrant name and the value after subtext with the extra text.
A cool domain is already on it's way!
We'll be working on a frontend and a ton of extra features to make this banner even more awesome.
If you got any nice ideas add them to the issue tracker here: https://github.com/cozyplanes/...
Don't let your team working be like this:
Frontend: Hey, is the API ready?
Backend: Sure, will give you later
Frontend: @backend, is the API ready?
Backend: yeah, yeah, will give you later, yesturday is busy.
Frontend: @backend, is it ready?
Backend: Been working on some prd bugs, will give you later
Backend: Oh, I just find out that you should ask @backend_b for this API...
(I was actually trying to get my avatar, but this story is real)17
Ever wanted cheat codes to devRant? Well, that's weird. But here you go, I guess.
Since the avatars do not use any external assets (Such as images), all avatars are generated. To be friendly to people who want to make third-party devRant clients (such as devRantron), avatars are generated server-side, so that the assets don't need to be distributed, and third-party programmers don't need to work out rendering avatars.
But this allows you to cheat a little.
The devRant avatars API works like this: you request a really long URL from the API, specifying the IDs of each cosmetic item the user has active, and it returns a PNG file. But you don't need an auth token to generate an avatar (which makes sense), so the avatar API is essentially a sandbox you can play around with if you have the time and patience.
You can write a really good avatar previewer with this knowledge, and see your avatar with a white tiger, even if you don't have the ++s14
devRant stats - A website with stats and Infos about devRant, for example most used word, how often the word 'fuck' has been used in rants posted today, what the average avatar looks like and other things that you can get using the devRant api28
The avatars items can be updated via the secret api, without an app update
@JS96 seems to be the only person who knows this api (3rd party) since there is a black raven in UWP avatar editor.
@Skayo searching for the api...
@Floydian thanking @trogus
@dfox staying quiet
devRant being an avatar fam.7
Playing around with pxgamer's php wrapper for the devrant api and was able to display my devrants avatar image in my portfolio project :D7
New Avatar item and no update? Are the items in the avatar builder fetched from the api? Would be an interesting endpoint for my api docs.
Will do research.13
I am currently reverse-engineering the devRant Avatar APIs, I think I understand all of it now. I am curently making comprehensive documentation on it and I think I will release it (if the developers of devRant allow me to do so).
I am reversing it as part of my project of making a devRant client built in SwiftUI, because I really want to make an avatar editor on there, it’s gonna be SICK!20
thank you @dfox! love the new avatar builder!
is it possible to link those avatars/expose an api to use on other sites?5
Wrote a image generation api which uses a headless browser within 2 days ^^ it generates an image like the one below in around 500ms while also loading external resources like that avatar and the icons. ^^2
Is there an api to fetch avatars?
I mailed to you a long time ago, but not getting any responses.7
GREAT PROGRESS TODAY!
I already made the login part of the devRant rewrite and I can reliably log in and out of the app.
From here, it’s just API requests, JSON parsing and just fitting the data to templates.
...and the avatar system.
Introducing the cheat.sh discord bot!
Brought to you by @TheMiper and myself, this guy delivers the latest and greatest cheat sheets from @chubin's cheat.sh straight to your discord server.
We've been messing around with it for a while now, so we think it's time to share it with the world.
We're hosting the bot on heroku, so feel free to try it out, find bugs, give feedback, contribute etc.
We also need an avatar.

I wish it was easier to embed devRant avatars 🤔
I mean I know I could use the API to receive the avatar (haven't looked into it yet) or even scratch it off profile pages, but something like
would be much nicer I think 😋.
