Ionic avatar

I just read about ionic avatars and was trying to use it in my application. But for some list items with no image, I want to use the custom first letter avatar, similar to the one which we can see in popular gmail app.
I have uploaded an image for reference. Someone please help me on this.

simple ngIf for your avater image?
if there is an image --> show image, if not build a circle with css3 and put the firstletter of the name in.

I prefer to use ng show because there is and you can use angulars default value to set the image or class you need.


I got that implemented using ngIf.
