Have you heard / seen? #libravatar runs on new (faster) hardware since last weekend! Did you notice the performance difference?
@gittaca ah! Got it.
Yes, if we at Libravatar reaches out, it sometimes looks like “marketing”. If a “user” requests the feature it’s always better! 😉
@ij @heluecht @admins Not nicely documented, but you can pass robohash=<set>. See https://git.linux-kernel.at/oliver/ivatar/-/blob/master/ivatar/views.py#L198
@syntax Yet another service, I'm not aware of. :-)
@keyoxide - feel free to replace Gravatar with Libravatar. If you do not want to go the full route and implement the federated API, it's a drop in replacement.
Yes, currently a bit slower than Gravatar, but we're working on that. It's mostly a hardware resource issue ATM.
@yojimbo I think changing the base URL would be easy. However, I do plans on getting rid of Gravatar mentions. And maybe we can even look into federation. But first I need to get it running ;-)
@yojimbo So... I took the time last weekend, checked it out on a separate machine and after some struggles I have these containers running. Now I need to check how to connect to them from outside and once that is running, I can start digging deeper in the code. However, since last (long - for me) weekend, I didn‘t find time to look further into it, but I wanted to share my progress so far.
@yojimbo I‘d love to, but I don‘t run Sentry and therefore this would be a bit harder to test. If anyone else has some resources and possibilities to test in a live env, I‘d love to connect!
We've kicked off the development of the profile page redesign:
Primarily driven by https://git.linux-kernel.at/oliver/ivatar/-/issues/60.
Keep posting us with your ideas! We really try to work on them!
Those who are on Twitter as well: https://twitter.com/libravatar/status/1313409956889202688?s=20 - we're open for likes and retweets! ;-)
@nicd Hashes are not actually hidden, but Libravatar does hide the end-user IP, so Gravatar has less options to track. If you implement some local proxying and hide everything, that's also a good idea. Again, just switch the base URL from Gravatar to LIbravatar and you have Libravatar support as well - apart from the Federated part of course.
Currently cache time is 5 minutes fixed.
Until now, nobody reached out and complaint about too many requests from us. Should that happen, we'll see...
