Prep Work

  1. You need to update the markdown file(.md) with 2 comments. You can refer here for updating it.
  2. You'll need a WakaTime API Key. You can get that from your WakaTime Account Settings
    • You can refer here, if you're new to WakaTime
  3. You'll need a GitHub API Token with repo and user scope from here if you're running the action to get commit metrics

    enabling the repo scope seems DANGEROUS
    but this GitHub Action only accesses your commit timestamp and lines of code added or deleted in repository you contributed.

    • You can use this example to work it out
  4. You need to save the WakaTime API Key and the GitHub API Token in the repository secrets. You can find that in the Settings of your repository. Be sure to save those as the following.
    • WakaTime API Key as WAKATIME_API_KEY=<your wakatime API Key>
    • GitHub Personal Access Token as GH_TOKEN=<your github access token>
  5. You can enable and disable feature flags based on requirements.

This Action will run everyday at 00.00 IST

Update your Readme

Add a comment to your like this:


These lines will be our entry-points for the dev metrics.

New to WakaTime

WakaTime gives you an idea of the time you really spent on coding. This helps you boost your productivity and competitive edge.

Profile Repository

You'll need to get a GitHub Access Token with a repo and user scope and save it in the Repo Secrets GH_TOKEN = <Your GitHub Access Token>

Here is Sample Workflow File for running it:

name: Waka Readme

    # Runs at 12am IST
    - cron: '30 18 * * *'
    name: Update Readme with Metrics
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
      - uses: anmol098/waka-readme-stats@master
          WAKATIME_API_KEY: ${{ secrets.WAKATIME_API_KEY }}
          GH_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GH_TOKEN }}
  • Now you can commit and wait for run automatically, but you can also trigger to run it to see the result now. Just go to the Actions in your repo and select your Profile Readme Development Stats workflow and click in Run workflow. Now wait for a minute or two and you will see your changes.


  1. If you want to add the other info to your stats, you can add multiple FLAGS in your workflow file by default all flags are enabled

except the lines of code flag due to heavy operation performed

- uses: anmol098/waka-readme-stats@master
          WAKATIME_API_KEY: ${{ secrets.WAKATIME_API_KEY }}
          GH_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GH_TOKEN }}
          SHOW_OS: "False"
          SHOW_PROJECTS: "False"

💖 Support the project

I open-source almost everything I can, and I try to reply to everyone needing help using these projects. Obviously, this takes time. You can use this service for free.

However, if you are using this project and happy with it or just want to encourage me to continue creating stuff, there are few ways you can do it :-

  • Giving proper credit when you use this action on your readme, linking back to it :D
  • Starring and sharing the project 🚀
  • - You can make one-time donations via PayPal. I'll probably buy a beer wine 🍷

Thanks! ❤️
