By getting people to follow you, you'll drive more attention to your projects and get more people involved in contributing and commenting.
What does it look like?
The button uses beatiful and sexy CSS3 styling!
How to use
Place gitfollow in your header
Place a link with
class="gitfollow" wherever you want your GitHub count to be rendered. Make sure the link points to your GitHub profile page.
<a href="http://github.com/Guille" class="gitfollow"></a>
If you want a smaller one try
<a href="http://github.com/Guille" class="gitfollow small"></a>
and that's it!
How it works
gitfollow utilizes the excellent GitHub API with the JSONP callback. Some neat things you can find in the code:
data: URI usage for the logo injection (which is really small)
HTML5 sessionStorage as a caching mechanism
CSS3 gradients, box-shadow, border-radius
gitfollow has been tested in Safari 4, Google Chrome (mac) and Firefox 3.5. It displays best in webkit-based browsers.
