How to make a GitHub profile README12 Jul 2020
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!
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.
