When we shifted to an online setup due to the pandemic, we had so many online activities where we needed a random name picker. There are websites that offer this service but, I wanted to have a privacy-centered program that can read a large list of names and runs on my own computer.

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.
