Usage

If no props are supplied then the default height and width are 100px and the rotation will be a random 10 digit number in the range of 10 degrees to 80 degrees inclusive.

< ReactRandomSquaresAvatar />

The props height and width set the avatars dimensions and the rotate value can be either 0, or a 10 digit number in the range of 10 degrees to 80 degrees inclusive.

<ReactRandomSquaresAvatar height="200" width="200" rotate="0" />
<ReactRandomSquaresAvatar height="200" width="200" rotate="80" />
