How to customise your GitHub profile (GitHub secret)

In this two-minute tutorial, I want to show how to quickly turn your boring GitHub profile page into something more personal, like this:

I recently came across this little feature that will make your GitHub profile stand out.

Step 1

Create a public repository that matches your GitHub username. E.g. username is ‘Renatello’.

I created a repository

Make sure you make it public and add a README file. Although, you can add a README file later.

Step 2

This is where the fun part begins. Once you’ve created your *special* repository and added a README file you can start customising your profile page.

Hi, I'm Renat 👋


You can use native GitHub markup to tweak the README file. Whatever you add to that file will show up at the top of your profile page.

That’s it.
