Get your GitHub 2021 year of contributions in 3D

You probably remember all the hype that came out last year when GitHub Skyline was released.

Social media was full of developers showing off their contributions. Now that 2021 has come to a close, it's time to check out your year of code. We also made some updates to Skyline.

Your 2021 year of contributions as a city

GitHub Skyline was a beautifully crafted landscape showing each of your contributions on GitHub. It's your contribution graph in 3D! All contributions, including public and private will show up on your GitHub Skyline.

Here's how to get yours:

  1. Go to skyline.github.com
  2. Enter your username
  3. Select "2021" from the drop down
  4. Click "Create a Skyline"

From there you'll see your contributions magically appear. Now you can do some super fun things:

  • Share your Skyline on social media using the "Share" button
  • Order your Skyline direct from the website
  • Download an STL file so you can print it yourself
  • Use ScreenToGif or similar to create a fun animation to share
  • Open skyline.github.com on your phone and use a headset to view your graph in virtual reality!

Create your skyline and share it on social media. Create a story around why your city is massive, or sparse; maybe you intentionally left room in the middle of your city for a park! 🌴

Did you find all the other hidden gems? Play around with the Skyline website to see if you can discover:

  • Konami code
  • Your skyline in ASCII art
  • See the start of your 2022 skyline
  • Get your personalised social media card

Was able to find the ASCII art in console log. Thanks for sharing this, guess i lived under a cave to not know Github introduced something like this.

Also in love with the fact that Github has used Nuxt <3. About time Vue/Nuxt gets some more recognition.

Just an update, the Konami code doesn't work in all browsers.
