Github Profile Section

Turning Github Profile Into Resume With README

The new feature of GitHub is gold.

Github’s new profile section feature is here. This fantastic update is under development. If you want to use this feature, you have to create a repo Username and create a file README.md, and now you can design your GitHub profile using README.md.

Now Less Headache

Previously we were using Github pages or other platforms to create a Profile section to show our skills. Now you don’t have to use another GitHub page to showcase your projects, your repository.

Enabling This Feature

To create a profile section for yourself, follow the steps that are given below.

Create a USERNAME/USERNAME repo on Github:

When you create a repository same as your username, you are going to get a message like this one:

After creating a repository, you have to create a README.md file. You can use a markdown cheat sheet for the README file.

After creating a readme profile visit your profile section and there you are going to find all the details you filled in the README file.

You can now support us to make better content by buying me a coffee.

Markdown Cheat Sheet

Header

# H1
## H2
### H3
#### H4
##### H5
###### H6
Alternatively, for H1 and H2, an underline-ish style:Alt-H1
======
Alt-H2
------

Emphasis

Emphasis, aka italics, with *asterisks* or _underscores_.Strong emphasis, aka bold, with **asterisks** or __underscores__.Combined emphasis with **asterisks and _underscores_**.Strikethrough uses two tildes. ~~Scratch this.~~

Lists

1. First ordered list item
2. Another item
⋅⋅* Unordered sub-list.
1. Actual numbers don't matter, just that it's a number
⋅⋅1. Ordered sub-list
4. And another item.
⋅⋅⋅You can have properly indented paragraphs within list items. Notice the blank line above, and the leading spaces (at least one, but we'll use three here to also align the raw Markdown).⋅⋅⋅To have a line break without a paragraph, you will need to use two trailing spaces.⋅⋅
⋅⋅⋅Note that this line is separate, but within the same paragraph.⋅⋅
⋅⋅⋅(This is contrary to the typical GFM line break behaviour, where trailing spaces are not required.)
* Unordered list can use asterisks
- Or minuses
+ Or pluses

Links

[I'm an inline-style link](https://www.google.com)[I'm an inline-style link with title](https://www.google.com "Google's Homepage")[I'm a reference-style link][Arbitrary case-insensitive reference text][I'm a relative reference to a repository file](../blob/master/LICENSE)[You can use numbers for reference-style link definitions][1]Or leave it empty and use the [link text itself].URLs and URLs in angle brackets will automatically get turned into links. 
http://www.example.com or <http://www.example.com> and sometimes
example.com (but not on Github, for example).
Some text to show that the reference links can follow later.[arbitrary case-insensitive reference text]: https://www.mozilla.org
[1]: http://slashdot.org
[link text itself]: http://www.reddit.com

Images

Inline-style: 
![alt text](link-to-logo "Logo Title Text 1")
Reference-style:
![alt text][logo]
[logo]: link-to-logo "Logo Title Text 2"

Code and Syntax Highlighting

```javascript
var s = "JavaScript syntax highlighting";
alert(s);
```

```python
s = "Python syntax highlighting"
print s
```

```
No language indicated, so no syntax highlighting.
But let's throw in a <b>tag</b>.
```

Tables

Colons can be used to align columns.| Tables        | Are           | Cool  |
| ------------- |:-------------:| -----:|
| col 3 is | right-aligned | $1600 |
| col 2 is | centered | $12 |
| zebra stripes | are neat | $1 |
There must be at least 3 dashes separating each header cell.
The outer pipes (|) are optional, and you don't need to make the
raw Markdown line up prettily. You can also use inline Markdown.
Markdown | Less | Pretty
--- | --- | ---
*Still* | `renders` | **nicely**
1 | 2 | 3

Blockquotes

> Blockquotes are very handy in email to emulate reply text.
> This line is part of the same quote.
Quote break.> This is a very long line that will still be quoted properly when it wraps. Oh boy let's keep writing to make sure this is long enough to actually wrap for everyone. Oh, you can *put* **Markdown** into a blockquote.

Inline HTML

<dl>
<dt>Definition list</dt>
<dd>Is something people use sometimes.</dd>
<dt>Markdown in HTML</dt>
<dd>Does *not* work **very** well. Use HTML <em>tags</em>.</dd>
