var url = protocol + 'lorempixel.com/' + width + '/' + height;

Do the maintainers want a PR that switches this URL to something else?

Nice. I have seen that lorem picsum also has an almost-same api as lorempixel

Yeah, it would just be a switch of the domain, so no real work. I did a little bit of research on lorem Flickr and it looks like it’s free and all they have is a paypal link, no advertising or anything.

Actually I totally take back what I said about loremFlickr, we should switch to https://placekitten.com/420/320

Alternatively, anything from this list should be fine: https://www.johanbostrom.se/blog/the-best-image-placeholder-services-on-the-web

FWIW, there's a pull request open at #398 to add additional image services. However, it hard-codes different methods for different providers, and could stand to be refactored a bit. If you could pick up the gauntlet, that'd be great! At the same time, you could add loremFlickr, placekitten, and the others from johanbostrom.se's list.

Hmm I could look into it but that PR looks pretty massive! I'll look more closely this weekend.

PR #398 looks like the right solution.

If anyone could help review this PR it would help.

It would probably also be a good idea if we could use Github as provider through their CDN.

I think it's time to move to another service or allow the user to select from different available services.
in both cases, PR #398 status should be resolved.

for the time being, I'm using

{
  image: 'https://picsum.photos/500/320/?image='+faker.random.number(1084),
}

which allows me to have repeatable results with faker.seed(), however, I noticed that some ids are missing on picsum.photos

@Marak Any updates on this? Still looking for community support or are we ready on #398 ?

Thanks!

lorempixel is down (pinging from São Paulo Brazil). Service was spotty for the last week or so, and now it seems down.
