How to make Github Profile like a Pro!

Having an amazing profile on a professional website is the need of an hour.

Check out my Github profile and if you want to create such a profile, this blog is absolutely for you.

ONE WAY→ CLONING THE TEMPLATE

Fork my repository and go to the readme file, then click on edit.

You will see the raw code of the profile(in HTML format). Copy that code and save it in notepad or wherever you like.

In order to create a Github Profile

Step 1 : Go to Github and create a new repository and name it as ${your_github_username}.

Step 2 : It is a special repository. It’s README.md will appear on your public profile!

Step 3 : Clone this repo to your favourite editor and add a new readme.md file.

Commands to follow!

git clone "repo_link"

Open the repo in the editor and create a new file readme.md

Copy the code from notepad to this file. Skip the 4th step, it is another way to make a template.

SECOND WAY→ CREATING A BRAND NEW TEMPLATE

Follow steps 1,2 and 3 they are common.

Step 4: Now go to this site!

It is a cool way to generate a custom Github profile.

Add the title, subtitle, skills and your socials and then click on generate readme. The code will appear in HTML format, copy that and paste it in the readme profile that you created.

THESE STEPS ARE COMMON IN BOTH THE WAYS!

Step 5 : Add all the changes

git add .

Step 6 : Commit them with a good message

git commit -m “my_github_profile”

Step 7 : Connect the local repo with upstream(remote repo), since we are cloning the repo for the first time

git push — set-upstream origin your_cloned_link

Step 8 : Now push the changes to the remote repo

git push origin master

Once the changes are pushed, go to the GitHub profile and the profile will display all your skills and status. Kudos! you have created your Github profile like a pro.

Learn to love slow progress. Learn to forgive yourself for the inevitable backsliding. And of course, expect to be uncomfortable along the way.

Till then Happy Coding :)
