How to create an GitHub Special Repository for Organisation

Around a Year Ago, GitHub Releases a special feature, that we can create our README, which will show us to the GitHub Profile, like this:

And, Today I saw this tweet, that this feature is available for the Organisations too.

Now, let me show how you can create one for your GitHub organisation.

Steps to Create a homepage for GitHub organisation

  • Create a New Public Repository in your organization named .github.

  • Under That Make a profile directory

  • Add a README.md under profile directory.

The Path of your README.md should be .github/profile/README.md.

Things You can add in Your Org. Homepage

It Can have all your README Details as you had in README.md of your main repository of the Org.

Or, you can add some promotional stuff, as you have in your Organisation's Landing Page/ Documentation Page.

Example

  • You Have To Create A File Like This:

Open Given File

  • You Can Add All Information, you wanted to display it out there, ( it can work as your Promotional page also :) )

Sample:
