We've seen several different avatar services throughout Minecraft's history, but even the most popular ones have ended up completely broken and bug ridden. Upon realizing this, RedstoneSheep and I set out to create a new service that would be 100% reliable, and faster than the other services available. With that, I present to you Crafatar! We started developing Crafatar back in October of this year, and we're still making improvements and adding new features! As of today, we have reached 300 commits over on our Github repository. Crafatar serves many websites, such as TechnicPack, ShockNetwork, and Globcraft. You can see a larger list of our users over here. We offer the usual Minecraft avatars: Along with skins: Not only do we serve usernames, but you can use UUIDs in replace of a username in any of our API endpoints! A quick example URL, that uses my face at 160px, with my helmet enabled: https://crafatar.com/avatars/Jake0oo0?size=160&helm You can find all the API documentation right over at our home page. If you decide to use Crafatar in your own application, we would love to hear from you over here!
