I am building an Android App which is able to modify the Nextcloud user’s avatar without accessing Nextcloud web.
After not finding an external api to set avatar I turned to custom api but found some issue.
I uploaded a custon avatar on Nextcloud web then write my code in my controller function below:
$credentials = $this->credentialStore->getLoginCredentials(); $avatar = $this->avatarManager->getAvatar($credentials->getLoginName()); $avatarImage = $avatar->get(-1); // -1 means original size not cropped or resized. $avatarWidth=avatarImage->width(); // This seems outputting the correct value. $avatarData = $avatarImage->data(); // This should return an base64 string or what. return json_encode($avatarImage);
Any size I tried results in an empty string.
Wondering what I’m doing wrong or it’s not a ready function in Nextcloud. Can anyone help on this one? Thanks in advance.
