Introducing contributors-img: Keep contributors in README.md

lacolaco profile image Suguru Inatomi ・Updated on ・1 min read

Hey folks! I introduce a web app I've created, contributors-img.
It generate an image to display contributors of your GitHub repository.

image

https://contributors-img.web.app/

Why image?

Because images are only way to embed dynamic content in README.md on GitHub.

Once you paste the generated image's URL in README.md, it will keep contributors list in sync without any effort.

It's FREE to use for open source!

Technically, contributors-img is built on top of Google Cloud Functions / Puppeteer / Angular / GitHub APIs.

Caveats

  • A repo having too many contributors takes a long time to generate an image.
  • For each repository, images are generated once in a day and it will be cached for later requests.

Thanks!
