Show your latest dev.to posts automatically on your GitHub profile readme

gautamkrishnar profile image Gautam krishna R Updated on 惻1 min read

I just created a GitHub Action that lets you add links to your latest blog posts from Dev.to and other sources to your Github Profile readme automatically.

Check it out if you want a readme like this:
Preview

Check out the project on GitHub: https://github.com/gautamkrishnar/blog-post-workflow
Example readme: https://github.com/gautamkrishnar

Update 22-July-2020

Thanks for the overwhelming response everyone, Just added StackOverflow support to the project. Now you can have your dev.to posts along with your StackOverflow activity in your GitHub readme. The action now supports having multiple instances on the same repo. See an example readme:

That's an awesome idea, I'm going to try this out with my readme! I also like the progress bars, but I think the data would be better visualized with a pie charts or a segmented bar instead of separating it. I'll play around with that as well, thanks!

 

That is a fantastic idea

There are some great GitHub profiles appearing now.

 

I guess is because we all want to be different in one way or another...

 

Looks great! I'm going to grab progress-bar idea $)

Another example with JS:
dev.to/mokkapps/how-i-built-a-self...

My example with ruby (step-by-step for beginners)
dev.to/pashagray/github-auto-readm...

Amazing!
I look forward to trying it out on my profile github.com/ileriayo/ileriayo

 

How come you guys always came out with those amazing things? I am jealous! šŸ¤©

 

I wanted to Github activities in my README.md. But I am getting error. How should I add?
I didn't understand what are those secret keys? And how to create one?

 

You cant use blog post workflow to show the GitHub activities on your readme. Github don't give you XML data yet via their API. Use github.com/jamesgeorge007/github-a... instead.

 

What are those GitHub keys? How to generate those?

It is optional in this workflow too. Just add the yml, you are good to go.

 

That's cool!

I did something similar but using Swift:

github.com/rderik/octoprofile

 
 
 

Cool! I just added it to my GitHub profile :

github.com/jbc7ag

Thanks, looks great!!

 
 

Loved this idea - thanks for sharing. Hope to try it out! šŸŽ‰

 
 

Works great, really cool stuff! Added to my profile: github.com/Fasani

I noticed you are on a 7 day contribution streak, why not join me and keep going for 365 days? #365DaysOfCode

 

Thanks. Since I have a full-time job, I may not be able to that šŸ˜„. During my college days, I had a good streak on GitHub.

 

1 day at a time! I also have a fulltime job and two kids! I believe you can do it! :-D

 

Iā€™m going to try this; thanks Gautam!

 
 

Bravo šŸ‘šŸ‘šŸ‘šŸ‘

 
 
 

Thanks for sharing this github profile Idea.
