GitHub Stats Card

Copy-paste this into your markdown content, and that's it. Simple!

Change the ?username= value to your GitHub username.

[![Anurag's GitHub stats](](

Note: Available ranks are S+ (top 1%), S (top 25%), A++ (top 45%), A+ (top 60%), and B+ (everyone). The values are calculated by using the cumulative distribution function using commits, contributions, issues, stars, pull requests, followers, and owned repositories. The implementation can be investigated at src/calculateRank.js.

Hiding individual stats

To hide any specific stats, you can pass a query parameter &hide= with comma-separated values.

Options: &hide=stars,commits,prs,issues,contribs

![Anurag's GitHub stats](,prs)

Adding private contributions count to total commits count

You can add the count of all your private contributions to the total commits count by using the query parameter &count_private=true.

Note: If you are deploying this project yourself, the private contributions will be counted by default. Otherwise, you need to choose to share your private contribution counts.

Options: &count_private=true

![Anurag's GitHub stats](

Showing icons

To enable icons, you can pass show_icons=true in the query param, like so:

With inbuilt themes, you can customize the look of the card without doing any manual customization.

Use &theme=THEME_NAME parameter like so :-

You can provide multiple comma-separated values in the bg_color option to render a gradient, with the following format:


Note on cache: Repo cards have a default cache of 4 hours (14400 seconds) if the fork count & star count is less than 1k, otherwise, it's 2 hours (7200 seconds). Also, note that the cache is clamped to a minimum of 2 hours and a maximum of 24 hours.

Top Languages Card

The top languages card shows a GitHub user's most frequently used top language.

NOTE: Top Languages does not indicate my skill level or anything like that; it's a GitHub metric to determine which languages have the most code on GitHub. It's a new feature of github-readme-stats.

Quick Tip (Align The Repo Cards)

You usually won't be able to layout the images side by side. To do that you can use this approach:

<a href="">
  <img align="center" src="" />
<a href="">
  <img align="center" src="" />

Deploy on your own Vercel instance

Since the GitHub API only allows 5k requests per hour, my could possibly hit the rate limiter. If you host it on your own Vercel server, then you don't have to worry about anything. Click on the deploy button to get started!

NOTE: Since #58 we should be able to handle more than 5k requests and have no issues with downtime :D

Deploy to Vercel

Guide on setting up Vercel 🔨
  1. Go to
  2. Click on Log in
  3. Sign in with GitHub by pressing Continue with GitHub
  4. Sign in to GitHub and allow access to all repositories, if prompted
  5. Fork this repo
  6. After forking the repo, open the vercel.json file and change the maxDuration field to 10
  7. Go back to your Vercel dashboard
  8. Select Import Project
  9. Select Import Git Repository. Select root and keep everything as is.
  10. Create a personal access token (PAT) here and enable the repo permissions (this allows access to see private repo stats)
  11. Add the PAT as an environment variable named PAT_1 (as shown).
  12. Click deploy, and you're good to go. See your domains to use the API!

💖 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 are happy with it or just want to encourage me to continue creating stuff, there are a few ways you can do it:-

  • Giving proper credit when you use github-readme-stats 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 coffee tea. 🍵

Thanks! ❤️

Contributions are welcome! <3
