Beautify Your GitHub Profile like a Pro 😍

GitHub is a code-sharing platform that provides developers a platform to showcase their coding skills, expertise and build an impressive online presence. It is important to keep your GitHub profile up-to-date and visually appealing. Here are some tips to help you beautify your GitHub profile like a pro!

Add a ReadMe

The ReadMe is the first thing people see when they visit your profile. So, make sure you add one that gives a clear idea of who you are and what you do.

To create a ReadMe for your profile you need to create a repo with your username as the repo name. For example if your username is AcidOP then you must name the repo as AcidOP.

Create Repo

Use your creativity

Now if the perfect time to learn some markdown and put it to good use. You can also use html for this step but I would suggest putting the time to learn markdown and use the same.

Now this is your place to shine. Use your creative ideas to create the best possible profile according to you. You can insert images and badges to make it more aesthetic.

I will add my 2 cents:

  • Keep it concise and to the point
  • Use relevant images or gifs to make it more engaging
  • Add links to your best projects and social media profiles

Pin Best Repositories

Pinning your best repositories at the top of your profile makes them more visible to visitors. This gives them a quick insight into your coding skills and expertise.

Choose the ones that are your best projects so far or the ones that you are most proud of. You can also pin your most recent projects to keep your profile updated.

Nice, it's always better to have a presentation on your GitHub profile!

Note that having a GitHub profile full of commits and projects does not necessarily mean that you are professional.
