default userpic API [Jun. 11th, 2004|08:14 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


[mood |exhaustedexhausted]


I seem to recall a very simple API that takes a username and returns a link that user's default icon. Does such a thing exist, or am I just imaginatively optimistic?

I downloaded the LJ server source code and didn't see anything that looked like what I'm talking about. However, I also noticed that an API that I *am* using was missing as well·

Well, the alternative I plan to take is to get a user's RSS feed and parse it out of there. The last option would be a screen scrape, but the overhead there would be huge and IMO unnecessary.

I agree that it seems like something that should be made available if it's not already.
