  • width – the width of the plugin in pixels. Default width: 300px.
  • height – the height of the plugin in pixels. The default height varies based on number of faces to display, and whether the stream is displayed. With the stream displayed, and 10 faces the default height is 556px. With no faces, and no stream the default height is 63px.
  • colorscheme – the color scheme for the plugin. Options: ‘light’, ‘dark’
  • show_faces – specifies whether or not to display profile photos in the plugin. Default value: true.
