Creating A GitHub Profile
AnkitDroidGit/AnkitDroidGit is now a special repository: its
README.mdwill appear on your profile!
GitHub recently released a feature that allows users to create a profile README to display prominently on their GitHub profile.
This write-up explains how to access this new feature and create your own special repository.
Let’s Start !!
The profile README is created by creating a new repository with the same name as your username.
Let's understand with my example:
Note: new repository name must match (including letter case) your GitHub username.
Let's follow the steps
- Create a new repository with the same name (including casing) as your GitHub username: https://github.com/new
- Let it be public.
- Initialize this repository with a README.
- Modify README.md file inside the repo with your content (text, GIFs, images, emojis, etc.)
- Commit your README!
- Push changes to GitHub (if you made changes locally).
I modified and committed my secret repo. That's how it looks currently.
