GitHub recently released a feature that allows users to create a profile-level README to showcase. This article walksthrough how to access this new feature.
The GitHub profile-level README feature allows more content than the profile bio, the README is significantally more visible as it is placed above pinned repositories and supports markdown which means you can play around with the content more visually.
I'm getting the error message because I have already created one.
Step 1: Creating a new repository that’s the same name(including casing) as your username.
For example, my GitHub username is ayushi7rawat so I created a new repository with the name ayushi7rawat
Step 2: Create a README.md file and add your fancy code there
Step 3: Once done you can Commit your new README!
What if you already have a repository with the same name? I’d recommend renaming the existing project, or if possible, changing the content of the README file.
My profile README is relatively simple. You can see how it looks like by checking my GitHub profile.
You can just simply add this code inside your README.
Have you created yours?
I shared mine, now you can share yours with me at Twitter
