Contribution overview

The maintainers of this project have not provided a contribution overview.


We were inspired to create it when we saw that not many tools are available open-source or on the Internet which do the job we intend to do. So we decided to create it as a side-project based purely to learn and have some fun juggling with Github APIs'.
Getting your Github profile under a single page in a resume type-of format so that you can simply put your Github resume when applying to internships or job profiles.
