Sweet and Simple API

Simple Heads

Unlike the PayPal API, we keep things nice and simple. For basic usage just provide a username: <img src="">

You can also set a size. We use pixels and we only need the width. Just add it to the end. <img src="">

And since some services require an extension we've added simple support for it. Just add .png to the end. <img src="">

Avatar With Helm

Sometimes you want to display a helm too, that's fine with this endpoint.

User's Skin

You can even use Minotar's API to get a users skin. We're adding more soon!

Random Skin

Randomly generated head? We got that too.
