    GitHub Stats Card

    Copy-paste this into your markdown content, and that is 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

    You can pass a query parameter &hide= to hide any specific stats with comma-separated values.

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

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

    Showing icons

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

    ![Anurag's GitHub stats](


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

    Use &theme=THEME_NAME parameter like so :

    ![Anurag's GitHub stats](

    All inbuilt themes

    GitHub readme stats comes with several built-in themes (e.g. dark, radical, merko, gruvbox, tokyonight, onedark, cobalt, synthwave, highcontrast, dracula).

    GitHub Readme Stats Themes

    You can look at a preview for all available themes or checkout the theme config file & you can also contribute new themes if you like :D

    Responsive Card Theme

    Anurag's GitHub stats-Dark Anurag's GitHub stats-Light

    Since GitHub will re-upload the cards and serve them from their CDN, we can not infer the browser/GitHub theme on the server side. There are, however, four methods you can use to create dynamics themes on the client side.

    Use the transparent theme

    We have included a transparent theme that has a transparent background. This theme is optimized to look good on GitHub's dark and light default themes. You can enable this theme using the &theme=transparent parameter like so:

    ![Anurag's GitHub stats](
    :eyes: Show example Anurag's GitHub stats
    Add transparent alpha channel to a themes bg_color

    You can use the bg_color parameter to make any of the available themes transparent. This is done by setting the bg_color to a color with a transparent alpha channel (i.e. bg_color=00000000):

    ![Anurag's GitHub stats](
    :eyes: Show example Anurag's GitHub stats
    Use GitHub's theme context tag

    You can use GitHub's theme context tags to switch the theme based on the user GitHub theme automatically. This is done by appending #gh-dark-mode-only or #gh-light-mode-only to the end of an image URL. This tag will define whether the image specified in the markdown is only shown to viewers using a light or a dark GitHub theme:

    [![Anurag's GitHub stats-Dark](](
    [![Anurag's GitHub stats-Light](](
    :eyes: Show example Anurag's GitHub stats-Dark Anurag's GitHub stats-Light
    Use GitHub's new media feature

    You can use GitHub's new media feature in HTML to specify whether to display images for light or dark themes. This is done using the HTML <picture> element in combination with the prefers-color-scheme media feature.

      media="(prefers-color-scheme: dark)"
      media="(prefers-color-scheme: light), (prefers-color-scheme: no-preference)"
    <img src="" />
    :eyes: Show example

    Top Languages Card

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

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


    Copy-paste this code into your readme and change the links.

    Endpoint: api/top-langs?username=anuraghazra

    [![Top Langs](](

    Language stats algorithm

    We use the following algorithm to calculate the languages percentages on the language card:

    ranking_index = (byte_count ^ size_weight) * (repo_count ^ count_weight)

    By default, only the byte count is used for determining the languages percentages shown on the language card (i.e. size_weight=1 and count_weight=0). You can, however, use the &size_weight= and &count_weight= options to weight the language usage calculation. The values must be positive real numbers. More details about the algorithm can be found here.

    • &size_weight=1&count_weight=0 - (default) Orders by byte count.
    • &size_weight=0.5&count_weight=0.5 - (recommended) Uses both byte and repo count for ranking
    • &size_weight=0&count_weight=1 - Orders by repo count
    [![Top Langs](](

    Exclude individual repositories

    You can use the &exclude_repo=repo1,repo2 parameter to exclude individual repositories.

    [![Top Langs](,](

    Hide individual languages

    You can use &hide=language1,language2 parameter to hide individual languages.

    [![Top Langs](,html)](

    Show more languages

    You can use the &langs_count= option to increase or decrease the number of languages shown on the card. Valid values are integers between 1 and 10 (inclusive), and the default is 5.

    Compact Language Card Layout

    You can use the &layout=compact option to change the card design.

    Quick Tip (Align The Repo Cards)

    By default, GitHub does not lay out the cards 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

    On Vercel

    :film_projector: Check Out Step By Step Video Tutorial By @codeSTACKr

    Warning If you are on the hobby (i.e. free) Vercel plan, please make sure you change the maxDuration parameter in the vercel.json file from 30 to 10 (see #1416 for more information).

    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 do not 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 fewer issues with downtime :grin:.

    Deploy to Vercel

    :hammer_and_wrench: Step-by-step guide on setting up your own Vercel instance 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. To import a project, click the Add New... button and select the Project option. 9. Click the Continue with GitHub button, search for the required Git Repository and import it by clicking the Import button. Alternatively, you can import a Third-Party Git Repository using the Import Third-Party Git Repository -> link at the bottom of the page. 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!

    On other platforms

    Warning This way of using GRS is not officially supported and was added to cater to some particular use cases where Vercel could not be used (e.g. #2341). The support for this method, therefore, is limited.

    :hammer_and_wrench: Step-by-step guide for deploying on other platforms 1. Fork or clone this repo as per your needs 2. Add express to the dependencies section of package.json 3. Run npm i if needed (initial setup) 4. Run node express.js to start the server, or set the entry point to express.js in package.json if you're deploying on a managed service 5. You're done 🎉

    Keep your fork up to date

    You can keep your fork, and thus your private Vercel instance up to date with the upstream using GitHubs' Sync Fork button. You can also use the pull package created by @wei to automate this process.

    :sparkling_heart: Support the project

    I open-source almost everything I can and 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 :rocket:
    • - You can make one-time donations via PayPal. I'll probably buy a coffee tea. :tea:

    Thanks! :heart:

    Contributions are welcome! <3
