What makes my profile interactive ❓

We call some element Interactive on our web page, which can response to our actions. For example

  • Redirecting to another page after clicking the social media icons.
  • Automatically updating latest list of blog on the page

and etc.. Here on my GitHub Profile there are 4 components that makes it interactive.

  1. 🖼 Banner
  2. 🔗 Social media icons with link
  3. 📝 List of my latest blog (which updated automatically)
  4. 🤪 The Living Emoji ❗

Today, In this article I will guide you how can also use such living emoji's in your GitHub Readme profiles/files. So Save this post right now.

How to use Living Emoji ❓

For embedding images markdown allows two ways

  • Using Markdown Syntax
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  • Using HTML Syntax
<img src"image-address.png" align="center"/>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Here we are using the second method to embed our emojis. But.. Why the second method ?

Using second method GitHub allows us to do modification in the images (our emoji is an image). Like aligning the emoji using align tag. Fixing the size of emoji using height and width tag.

This will help to you to add emoji according to your way.

⚡ Now coming to the main part. I have created a repository ↗ where I have listed emojis that are interactive. These are the emojis that are publicaly made available by Telegram team.

I have made it simple for you, so that you can easily embed these emoji to you GitHub readme profile. All you need to do is to follow the below steps:

STEP 1: Copy and paste the below syntax to your Markdown file

<img src"<emoji-tag>.gif height="30" width="30" align="center" />
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

STEP 2: Replace <emoji-tag> with your preffered emoji-tag of choice form the ** below table**.

STEP 3: Paste your profile in the comments to show of to the community 😂


🚨 Attention: Some of the emojis may look big, because it's not rendered properly by the DEV.

🚨 When using in you GitHub profile, you can adjust the size using height and weight tags.

🚀 These just few... for more visit
