How To Create A GitHub Beautiful Profile README

GitHub recently released a feature that allows users to create a profile-level README to display prominently on their GitHub profile.

A README file, along with a repository licensecontribution guidelines, and a code of conduct, helps you communicate expectations for and manage contributions to your project.


A solid README is a core-component of well-documented software and often encourages collaboration by sharing helpful context with contributors. In my opinion, a profile-level README seems like a great extension of a convention a lot of GitHub users are already familiar with.

How can we achieve this on our profile?

Step 1.

In the upper-right corner of any page, use the  drop-down menu, and select New repository.

STEP 2:

Under “Repository name”, type a repository name that matches your GitHub username. For example, if your username is “TG-codes”, the repository name must be “TG-codes”.

Optionally, add a description of your repository. For example, “My personal repository.”

STEP 3 .

Select Public.

STEP 4

Select Initialize this repository with a README.

STEP 5

Click Create repository.

Once you are done with the last step, you will be taken to your repository page which looks like this.
