Updates on Timezone extension


Hey, this is a quick post to show the improvements the Timezone extension for GNOME Shell has received since it was born a couple of weeks ago.

  • Support avatars from Gravatar.com and Libravatar.
  • Support GitHub profile. We fetch people’s name, city and avatar from there.
  • Ability to specify a location for people.json file. We support even remote files (e.g.: http://example.com/people.json). This way a whole team can share this file and use a single copy of it!

Here’s a simple people.json file showing the new features:

[
  {
    "github": "jwendell",
    "tz": "America/Sao_Paulo"
  },
  {
    "name": "Niel",
    "gravatar": "niel@example.com",
    "city": "Cape Town",
    "tz": "Africa/Johannesburg"
  }
]
