django-gravatar

https://secure.travis-ci.org/twaddington/django-gravatar.png

A lightweight django-gravatar app. Includes helper methods for interacting with gravatars outside of template code.

If you like this library and it's saved you some time, please consider supporting further development with a Gittip donation!

Features

  • Helper methods for constructing a gravatar url and checking an email for an existing gravatar
  • Templatetags for generating a gravatar url or gravatar <img> tag.
  • Full test suite!

Installing

Install from PyPi:

You can pip install the app directly from GitHub:

$ pip install git+git://github.com/twaddington/django-gravatar.git#egg=DjangoGravatar

Alternatively, you can now install directly from PyPi!

$ pip install django-gravatar2

Make sure you install django-gravatar2 as there are several other incompatible django-gravatar libraries available.

Add django_gravatar to your INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    # ...
    'django_gravatar',
)

Basic Usage

Use in code:

from django_gravatar.helpers import get_gravatar_url, has_gravatar, get_gravatar_profile_url, calculate_gravatar_hash

url = get_gravatar_url('alice@example.com', size=150)
gravatar_exists = has_gravatar('bob@example.com')
profile_url = get_gravatar_profile_url('alice@example.com')
email_hash = calculate_gravatar_hash('alice@example.com')

Use in templates:

{% load gravatar %}

{% gravatar_url user.email 150 %}
# https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/hash.jpg?size=150

{% gravatar user.email 150 %}
# <img class="gravatar" src="https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/hash.jpg?size=150" width="150" height="150" alt="" />

{% gravatar user.email 150 "user@example.com" %}
# <img class="gravatar" src="https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/hash.jpg?size=150" width="150" height="150" alt="user@example.com" />

{% gravatar_profile_url user.email %}
# https://secure.gravatar.com/hash
