WeeklyFinds(2): github-readme-stats | Add stats to your GitHub readme

I was considering making this installment of WeeklyFinds about cool form utilities.

But, as the new GitHub feature has brought so many cool projects and ideas to the table, I will be featuring github-readme-stats, "Dynamically generated stats for your GitHub readmes".

It does not only work for GitHub readme, but you can also use it here on, and I imagine other markdown renderers as well.

Here is a sample of what it can do (take into account that it's a newborn, was created yesterday):
