How to Add Your Recently Published Medium Articles to Your GitHub Readme

GitHub recently released a new feature that allows you to create a Readme profile, so you can now customize your GitHub profile page.

This feature is really nice. It makes your GitHub profile look more professional and content-rich. In the future, I expect GitHub to look like LinkedIn for developers.


Introducing GitHub Readme — Recent Medium Articles

I’ve seen a lot of plug-ins that people have made, like the GitHub stats card, programming language stats, and even games (e.g. this online chess game or even tic-tac-toe).

In this readme, the user has included a list of their recently published Medium articles. But it’s only available on their profile. To achieve the same results, I need to copy their code, which takes time.

That’s the original idea behind this plug-in. I created a separate repository with a customized function. I then made the function more generic so everyone can add their recently published Medium articles to their GitHub readme.

Steps

To use this plug-in, you only need to add this script to your GitHub readme:

So the format is:

https://github-readme-medium-recent-article.vercel.app/medium/<medium-username>/<article-index>
  • medium-username: Your medium username/profile
  • article-index : Your recent article index (e.g. 0 means your latest article)

The full steps can be seen in my repository. Also if you’ve found any issues, just open an issue or create a PR directly on that repository.

Creating a README with Statistics for your GitHub Profile.

So you noticed that some GitHub accounts have statistics on their profile and wondered how they did it. In this article, you will learn how easy it is to create one for your own profile.

In late 2020, GitHub released a new feature which allows users to create a README file for their profiles. This file is quite useful especially in marketing yourself. You can put an introduction about yourself, your work, skills, experiences, and more.

Some people also put their GitHub statistics, which I will show you how to do in this article.

The statistics that will be shown will be an overview of your GitHub account. It shall display information such as total stars, forks, repository views, languages you used, and more.

A sample README.md for a GitHub user’s profile

Let’s begin by learning how to create a README file that shows up in your profile.

How to Publish a Book with GitBook CLI and GitHub Pages in 7 Minutes

Publishing a book or documentation online has never been easier than it is today.

Many services offer you incredible possibilities for publishing beautiful docs with custom domains. The only caveat is that often you need to pay for full features and probably need to use some web-based Markdown editor, which may complicate your life, rather than make it simpler.

The good news is that you don’t need to pay anything to publish visually appealing documentation online. You don’t even need to change your favorite Markdown editor or have a custom domain. All you need is a GitHub account, a text editor of your choice, and a command prompt. In this post, I will show you how to publish your book or documentation on GitHub Pages in less than ten minutes.

Getting Gitbook CLI

Gitbook is an open-source project that helps thousands of developers, researchers, and journalists build beautiful documentation that support sections, nesting, code rendering, as well as multiple formats.

While the main efforts of Gitbook developers are now focused on the Gitbook.com platform (which is not completely free), the legacy tool called

gitbook-cliis still around and can be used to build static HTML files to render in a browser.

To install the tool, you need

npm, so make sure that you install Node.js (npmwill install together) if you haven’t done so in the past.

Install

gitbook-cli.
