Put a README on your GitHub profile

Fri 10, Jul 2020


I discovered a really nice easter egg in GitHub today! If you create a repository that's named exactly like your GitHub username and put a README.md in there, the rendered README will show up on your profile!

My profile with the README


  1. Create a new repository named as your GitHub username (if your name is Example, name the repository Example); GitHub shows you a green easter egg alert right under the name input if the name is correct
  2. Check that Initialize this repository with a README is on
  3. Click Create repository

Now edit the newly created README.md with the contents you want to show on your GitHub profile.

My Git Mirror

Mon 11, May 2020

The Git mirror is no longer available. I'm looking forward to a new solution, though.

I just mirrored my GitHub repositories, just in case they go down, at offline. I'm using GitList for now.

The GitHub iOS app

The GitHub iOS app is finally available! It's pretty cool imo (and has multiple icons you can choose from!)

Git: Deleting the last pushed commit

Wed 11, Mar 2020

This is something I really gotta remember:

git push origin +abcd1234^:master

The above example deletes the commit abcd1234 (the newest one) on the branch master and pushes it to origin.

You are on page 1 right now.
