Update: It’s gone now.

I was having a read through some source code on a project and came across a reference to Avatars.io, which is a pretty nice service for fetching avatars.

I’ll be using this in future for something like Gravatar rather than having to hash an email and generate a link. For example I can do https://avatars.io/gravatar/some@email.here. If I wanted my Twitter avatar then it’s https://avatars.io/twitter/tj_fogarty. It also supports Instagram, and Facebook.

Check out Avatars.io
