#AngularJS Gravatar Image Directive
This is a simple AngularJS Directive that takes an email address and creates an image tag to pull an avatar image form the Gravatar web site.
A complete tutorial on how the directive was written is at Creating a Simple AngularJS Directive
To use the directive:
- Include angularjs-gravatardirective.js or angularjs-gravatardirective.min.js files in your project and include script tags for each in your wb page.
- Add the following dependency to your AngularJS app; 'angularjs-gravatardirective'.
- Add the directive where you want the image to be displayed. See sample app for directive usage.
You can configure the directive using the following attributes:
- Email - You must supply an email address for the directive using the data-email attribute.
- Size - You can specify the size of the avatar image using the data-size attribute. The default is 40 pixels.
- Rating - You can specify a rating to limit what avatars are displayed. The default rating is PG.
- Default Image - You can specify a default image to display if the email address does not have an associated avatar. The default is 404.
- Secure - You can optionally specify a true value in the data-secure attribute to request the SSL version of the avatar.
- cssClass - You can optionally specify css classes to apply to the resulting image. The default css class is gravatar-icon.
Note: All attributes must be proceeded with 'gravatar-' in order to keep from interfering with other angular library directives. See the directive unit tests and the sample app for an example.

v1.3.2 - Addresses Issue #18 'Unknown provider' error. the gravatarImageService was missing the minification array causing the service to not instantiate properly.
v1.3.1 - Addresses Issue #17 Hide the image, when loading fails. Now the image element will be removed from the DOM if the image fails to load.
v1.3.0 - Restructured library structure to take advantage of angularjs-library yeoman generator to generate a single file for use.
v1.2.0 - Added pull request to move imageSrc to a service for use by external consumers.
v1.1.0 - Added additional namespaces to all attributes to keep from interfering with other AngularJS Library Directives. Resolves Issue #13
