The Avatar API allows developers to get a user's profile picture and real name based on their email address. This can be used to personalize email-based communications or even just to add real names to a database of email addresses. The API uses public profile data held by Google, which includes information for more than 1 billion users.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
