GitHub Mini Profile Widget


If you are a programmer who uses GitHub then why not share your coding projects via your WordPress blog by adding a snapshot
of your profile as a widget

Simply add the widget to your preferred location and enter your GitHub username.

Features include:

  • Cached using Transient
  • Displays your GitHub profile image
  • Shows your GitHub bio, if set
  • Shows your Location, email address & blog URL if set
  • Provides links to your followers, following and starred repositories


  • An example showing the GitHub Mini Profile Widget in use.


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/plugin-name directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Add the widget to your desired location in Appearance->Widgets
  4. Enter your GitHub username in the appropriate field
  5. If desired, add a GitHub API Token and/or alter the cache timeout.


Is a GitHub API token required

No… Although it is recommended, especially if you wish to have the cache timeout set to a low value, or if you require regular access to the GitHub API through other areas of your website.

Easy to use and a nice design, thanks! I didn’t need the API key when using a cache timeout of 30 minutes, which is great.
