Last Month (July 2020) GitHub released a feature to allow users to create profile-level README to display an interesting view of their profiles.
You may want to add personal information about yourself in your bio, like previous projects you've contributed to, or interests you have that other person may like to know about.
If you want to get access to the README template go to my profile -> here
You have to add a README file to the root of a public repository with the same name as your username, then that README will automatically appear on your profile page.
You will see a nice banner indicating that you have found a secret on GitHub
Is that it? Yes, as simple as that you will have now a landing README for your profile.
Note: The naming convention is case-sensitive, so make sure the names of your repo and profile match.
As soon as you create your repo, a README file with the following template will be created:
**pedes/pedes** is a ✨ _special_ ✨ repository because of its README.md (this file) appears on your GitHub profile.` Here are some ideas to get you started: - 🔭 I’m currently working on ...` - 🌱 I’m currently learning ... - 👯 I’m looking to collaborate on ... - 🤔 I’m looking for help with ... - 💬 Ask me about ... - 📫 How to reach me: ... - 😄 Pronouns: ... - ⚡ Fun fact: ...
