Installation

Usage

See more details on https://libgravatar.readthedocs.org/

Gravatar API

Gravatar API requires no authentication to get images and profiles URLs.

Getting the user profile image:

from libgravatar import Gravatar
g = Gravatar('myemailaddress@example.com')
g.get_image()
'https://www.gravatar.com/avatar/0bc83cb571cd1c50ba6f3e8a78ef1346'

Getting the profile URL:

from libgravatar import Gravatar
g = Gravatar('myemailaddress@example.com')
g.get_profile()
'https://www.gravatar.com/0bc83cb571cd1c50ba6f3e8a78ef1346'

Gravatar XML-RPC API

The XML-RPC API requires authentication.

You can use your Gravatar.com's email and password:

from libgravatar import GravatarXMLRPC
g = GravatarXMLRPC('name@example.com', password='1234')
g.test() # test the API

or if you have an account at Wordpress.com you can use your email and API key. You can find your API key at https://apikey.wordpress.com/ just be sure to pass to the function your email instead of your username:

from libgravatar import GravatarXMLRPC
g = GravatarXMLRPC('name@example.com', apikey='1234')
g.test() # test the API
