django-simplegravatar (version 0.3.2)
Last updated: 26-Oct-2015

A simpler Django template tag to add Gravatar support to your Django projects.

To install this app, simply:
    1) pip install django-simplegravatar
        or drop the 'simplegravatar' folder somewhere on your PYTHONPATH
    2) Add 'simplegravatar' to your projects INSTALLED_APPS list in

    Optional settings:

    SIMPLEGRAVATAR_SIZE (default: 80)
    - Pixel width and height of Gravatar (they are all square)

    SIMPLEGRAVATAR_RATING (default: 'g')
    - g, pg, r, x

    - Default image if no Gravatar exists for email. Should be a full image
      URL to your custom image, or one of the Gravatar built-in defaults...
        - 404: do not load any image if none is associated with the email
          hash, instead return an HTTP 404 (File Not Found) response
        - mm: (mystery-man) a simple, cartoon-style silhouetted outline of a
          person (does not vary by email hash)
        - identicon: a geometric pattern based on an email hash
        - monsterid: a generated 'monster' with different colors, faces, etc
        - wavatar: generated faces with differing features and backgrounds
        - retro: awesome generated, 8-bit arcade-style pixelated faces

    SIMPLEGRAVATAR_SECURE (default: False)
    - Use https?

    For more information about these default options see:

USAGE (this goes in your templates):
    {% load simplegravatar %}
    {% show_gravatar "" %}

You may optionally pass a size into this tempalte tag:
    {% show_gravatar "" 48 %}

If you require a secure image (instead of using SETTINGS):
    {% show_gravatar_secure "" %}
