The "Gravatar" project is a simple wrapper for the Gravatar API allowing you to get small avatar images for a given registered email address. You can easily access and use it in Pharo.

The project is located on STHub at http://smalltalkhub.com/#!/~TorstenBergmann/Gravatar

To install just open the Pharo configuration browser and load "Gravatar" from there.
You can also install manually, read the docu on the project page.

Some examples:

    Gravatar imageURLFor: 'example at mail.com'
If you require a different size just evaluate:

    Gravatar imageURLFor: 'example at mail.com' size: 32.

If you need the real image you can use Pharos Zinc components suite to get the image form over HTTP and open it on your Pharo desk:

	form := ZnEasy getJpeg: (self imageURLFor: 'example at mail.com').
	form asMorph openInWorld

In the end it is just a simple class - but I think it may be useful for 
others too.
