Gravatar.com, mainly known for its avatar hosting. But users can store more than only an avatar at gravatar.
This gem also allows you to easily access it all (accounts at other social networks, more photo's, the name of the user, saved websites, cryptocurrency accounts and more)
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install easy_gravatar
Creating an instance is easy:
user = EasyGravatar::Gravatar.new("email@example.com")
Or use the even shorter class Gravatar:
user = Gravatar.new("firstname.lastname@example.org")
After creating an instance you can get some basics fast using
user.full_name # => the full name of the user user.avatar # => the avatar from the user, in the default gravatar width of 80 pixels user.avatar(150) # => the avatar from the user, in with a width of 150 pixels
Feel free to contribute to the project and add your own "short getters".
All the available information is saved in a hash. Use
user.hash to get the hash. As an alternative it is also possible to easily read from the hash.
user.get_value(:formattedName) # => also gives the full name user.get_value(:currency, :bitcoin) # => gives the users bitcoin address
