DEV to Github profile assistant

shriji profile image Shriji Updated on ・1 min read

Github released a new feature that let's you create your resume/profile. I have made a README.MD generator that fetches your profile's Name, bio and recent 5 articles.

Here is my profile preview

To create a profile simply use your username as repository's name. You will be greeted with this

Greet

Go get your profile's README here http://github.anoram.com/
The Generated MD looks like this.

Generated MD

Update 1:

  • Fixed a bug not able to generate MD.
  • Code doesn't break if inputs are bad.
  • Adds dynamic profile badge and followers badge.

There's a problem with https://visitor-badge.glitch.me/badge?page_id=mzaini30.mzaini30: This project has received too many requests, please try again later.

What about this: https://visitor-badge.laobi.icu/badge?page_id=mzaini30.mzaini30 (It's still working)

 

Sure, I will add them thanks visitor-badge.glitch.me had API overage 😅.

Thanks again

 

Thanks Zen,

I went ahead and added this badge

 

Very cool! I also made a Pipedream workflow that updates the README dynamically, as soon as you publish a new post: dev.to/dylburger/show-your-most-re... .

Mine only displays the most recent post, but you can modify the workflow to display the most recent 5, if you'd like.

 

Add feature: What if you add this text in end of line:

This profile is generated by [Anoram](http://github.anoram.com/)
 

I would but I just don't want to add a small ad on their profile, some might consider it bitter.

I love dev community 🤗 and I just let it be.

 

What if this:

<!-- tools: github.anoram.com -->

This is very useful if I'll generate again but forgot the profile generator website 😂

 

Nice one! That is a really cool idea :) I might take it further and set it up as a Cloud Function and on a timer or hook somehow such that it keeps it up to date.

Ideally, I'm going to move to storing/writing my DEV posts in Github anyway, so could be a nice round trip.

 

Surely I am also working on it to make them dynamic. Glad you like this idea.

 

Random Quick Idea: You can have a "Update Latest" button in ReadMe, that would:

  • create a new issue in that repos
  • run Github action when an issue is created
  • fetches article and updates the ReadMe
 
 

Hi Zen,

Thanks for trying it out and finding bugs.
I am not sure what could be the problem on your side it seems to work for me.

I believe it has something to do with the browser, I just tested with chrome and edge for android and on my browser on PC. They seem to work.

 

I think, there's a problem with my internet. Hehehehe...

 

Yes indeed. This feature is cool.
