Announcing GitHub README Templates - Amazing README's to get you started with your own.

Hello and thank you checking out my post about GitHub README Templates!

Adding an amazing README to your GitHub project is a great way of introducing new people to the codebase, teaching them about how to use your project/code, and will inspire them to contribute themselves.

I've always struggled with what makes a great README. That's why I've gathered some that I really enjoyed and made them available on www.readme-templates.com.

You can preview all the README's, copy their markdown, and view the original projects on GitHub.

I'd love to hear what you think and if you have any README's you can recommend to add!

Cheers πŸ˜„

Glad to see a curated list of awesome READMEs.

Great work! README acts as a door to your open-source project. Having said that I always spent a lot of time to craft my READMEs: github.com/vinitshahdeo

Sharing a few from mine tiny space on GitHub:
