In case you missed it. GitHub profiles are now live!
I first saw this feature being teased a little while back in this post and I was pretty excited, but I've been waiting a while for it to become an actual thing. Finally they're here!
kathy ☁️@pifafuhey, so we heard ya & are trying out a thing where you CAN have a readme on your @github profile...
@mikekavouras built it btw! re: twitter.com/pifafu/status/…22:33 PM - 27 May 2020kathy ☁️ @pifafu👋 hiii—if you use @github, i was wondering: what are some of the things you would want others on GitHub to know about you?
Looks like they used to be done with a
.github/README.md repo and file. But it seems like they've changed things a little. Here's how you do it.
- Make a repository with the same name as your GitHub username.
- Create a README.md file inside that repo.
- Commit and push the file to GitHub
- Click the "Share to Profile" button in the sidebar.
That's it. Now check your GitHub profile. It should look a little like this.
