XBox Live "GamerTag" style widget for displaying your Stack Overflow information. Currently displays:

  • Name
  • Gravatar
  • Reputation
  • Badges

It also links to your profile screen.

As from 2.0.0 the widget now uses the Stack Overflow JSON feed, rather than a screen scrape. This means that json_decode must be available (i.e. PHP5>=5.2.0). If you can't satisfy that requirement then you should stick with 1.0.4.

Changelog: 1.0.4 - Added caching, configurable in the settings, defaults to 30minutes. 2.0.0 - Switched from screen scraping to decoding the SO JSON feed.
