Important Notices


Since the GitHub API only allows 5k requests per hour per user account, the public Vercel instance hosted on https://github-readme-stats.vercel.app/api could possibly hit the rate limiter (see #1471). We use caching to prevent this from happening (see https://github.com/anuraghazra/github-readme-stats#common-options). You can turn off these rate limit protections by deploying your own Vercel instance.

Uptime Badge


We're a small team, and to prioritize, we rely on upvotes 👍. We use the Top Issues dashboard for tracking community demand (see #1935). Do not hesitate to upvote the issues and pull requests you are interested in. We will work on the most upvoted first.

GitHub Stats Card

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

Change the ?username= value to your GitHub username.

[![Anurag's GitHub stats](https://github-readme-stats.vercel.app/api?username=anuraghazra)](https://github.com/anuraghazra/github-readme-stats)


By default, the stats card only shows statistics like stars, commits, and pull requests from public repositories. To show private statistics on the stats card, you should deploy your own instance using your own GitHub API token.


Available ranks are S (top 1%), A+ (12.5%), A (25%), A- (37.5%), B+ (50%), B (62.5%), B- (75%), C+ (87.5%) and C (everyone). This ranking scheme is based on the Japanese academic grading system. The global percentile is calculated as a weighted sum of percentiles for each statistic (number of commits, pull requests, reviews, issues, stars, and followers), based on the cumulative distribution function of the exponential and the log-normal distributions. The implementation can be investigated at src/calculateRank.js. The circle around the rank shows 100 minus the global percentile.

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](https://github-readme-stats.vercel.app/api?username=anuraghazra&hide=contribs,prs)

Showing additional individual stats

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

Options: &show=reviews,discussions_started,discussions_answered,prs_merged,prs_merged_percentage

![Anurag's GitHub stats](https://github-readme-stats.vercel.app/api?username=anuraghazra&show=reviews,discussions_started,discussions_answered,prs_merged,prs_merged_percentage)

Showing icons

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

![Anurag's GitHub stats](https://github-readme-stats.vercel.app/api?username=anuraghazra&show_icons=true)


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](https://github-readme-stats.vercel.app/api?username=anuraghazra&show_icons=true&theme=radical)

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. Please note that we paused the addition of new themes to decrease maintenance efforts; all pull requests related to new themes will be closed.

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](https://github-readme-stats.vercel.app/api?username=anuraghazra&show_icons=true&theme=transparent)
👀 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](https://github-readme-stats.vercel.app/api?username=anuraghazra&show_icons=true&bg_color=00000000)
👀 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](https://github-readme-stats.vercel.app/api?username=anuraghazra&show_icons=true&theme=dark#gh-dark-mode-only)](https://github.com/anuraghazra/github-readme-stats#gh-dark-mode-only)

👀 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="https://github-readme-stats.vercel.app/api?username=anuraghazra&show_icons=true" />
👀 Show example


You can customize the appearance of all your cards however you wish with URL parameters.

We use caching to decrease the load on our servers (see #1471 (comment)). Our cards have a default cache of 6 hours (21600 seconds). Also, note that the cache is clamped to a minimum of 6 hours and a maximum of 24 hours. If you want the data on your statistics card to be updated more often you can deploy your own instance and set environment variable CACHE_SECONDS to a value of your choosing.

Gradient in bg_color

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

Top Languages Card

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


By default, the language card shows language results only from public repositories. To include languages used in private repositories, you should deploy your own instance using your own GitHub API token.


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.


This card shows language usage only inside your own non-forked repositories, not depending on who the author of the commits is. It does not include your contributions into another users/organizations repositories. Currently there are no way to get this data from GitHub API. If you want this behavior to be improved you can support this feature request created by @rickstaa inside GitHub Community.


Currently this card shows data only about first 100 repositories. This is because GitHub API limitations which cause downtimes of public instances (see #1471). In future this behavior will be improved by releasing GitHub action or providing environment variables for user's own instances.

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](https://github-readme-stats.vercel.app/api/top-langs/?username=anuraghazra&size_weight=0.5&count_weight=0.5)

Exclude individual repositories

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

Quick Tip (Align The Cards)

By default, GitHub does not lay out the cards side by side. To do that, you can use this approach:

Deploy on your own

On Vercel

Since the GitHub API only allows 5k requests per hour, my https://github-readme-stats.vercel.app/api 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!


Since #58, we should be able to handle more than 5k requests and have fewer issues with downtime 😁.


If you are on the Pro (i.e. paid) Vercel plan, the maxDuration value found in the vercel.json can be increased when your Vercel instance frequently times out during the card request. You are advised to keep this value lower than 30 seconds to prevent high memory usage.

Deploy to Vercel

🛠️ Step-by-step guide on setting up your own Vercel instance
  1. Go to vercel.com.
  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. Go back to your Vercel dashboard.
  7. To import a project, click the Add New... button and select the Project option.
  8. 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.
  9. Create a personal access token (PAT) here and enable the repo and user permissions (this allows access to see private repo and user stats).
  10. Add the PAT as an environment variable named PAT_1 (as shown).
  11. Click deploy, and you're good to go. See your domains to use the API!

On other platforms


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.

🛠️ 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
    "dependencies": {
    "axios": "^0.24.0",
    "dotenv": "^8.2.0",
    "emoji-name-map": "^1.2.8",
    "github-username-regex": "^1.0.0",
    "upgrade": "^1.1.0",
    "word-wrap": "^1.2.3"
  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
    "main": "src/index.js",
  5. You're done 🎉

Disable rate limit protections

Github Readme Stats contains several Vercel environment variables that can be used to remove the rate limit protections:

  • CACHE_SECONDS: This environment variable takes precedence over our cache minimum and maximum values and can circumvent these values for self-hosted Vercel instances.

See the Vercel documentation on adding these environment variables to your Vercel instance.

Keep your fork up to date

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

💖 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. 🚀
  • paypal.me/anuraghazra - You can make a one-time donations via PayPal. I'll probably buy a coffee tea. 🍵

Thanks! ❤️
