From the flair page, it is mentioned that it is available in JSON format. How can I use its response for my website similar to the JSONP example? If it's not possible, why?

Hm... you mean like server-side?

Here's some code in PHP that does the equivilant of the JSON example:

<?php
$flair_json_url = 'http://meta.stackoverflow.com/users/flair/100835.json';
$flair_data = json_decode(file_get_contents($flair_json_url));
?>
<div id="so-flair">
    <div id="gravatar"><?php print $flair_data->gravatarHtml; ?></div>
    <div id="reputation"><?php print $flair_data->reputation; ?></div>
    <div id="badges"><?php print $flair_data->badges; ?></div>
    <div id="displayname"><?php print $flair_data->displayname; ?></div>
    <a id="profileurl" href="<?php htmlspecialchars($flair_data->profileUrl); ?>">Visit my profile</a>
</div>

Using JavaScript only if it's possible. If it's not possible using JavaScript only, why? – Randell Apr 28 '10 at 13:02

What part of the JSON example on the flair page are you having problems with? – heavyd Apr 28 '10 at 13:10
    
It's a JSONP example. I'm looking for an example for client-side processing of the JSON. – Randell Apr 28 '10 at 13:13
