📣 WordPress plugin to show Github profile summary through their API.
After installing the plugin, just use this shortcode:
[github-flair] in your posts, pages or widgets.
You can make use of the user attribute of the shortcode like this:
where WordPress can be replaced by your desired Github username.
By default, the search function is enabled but if you need to remove it, you can do so with:
You can also make use of the shortcode in your template files using this
<?php echo do_shortcode("[github-flair user='WordPress']") ; ?>
Do I need an API key to access GitHub key?
You might not need an API key for now since GitHub offers unauthenticated access up to certain limit. Please read this: https://docs.github.com/en/rest/guides/getting-started-with-the-rest-api which says that they allow up to 60 requests per hour per user. So they block the IP for a while if they exceed that limit.
The admin inputs for API key will be in the future releases if people find it interesting to work with.
How do I limit the number of search results?
Make use of the attribute
[github-flair total-results="25"]where you can set any number instead of 25.
I need to add/delete details to/from these cards.
You can do so if you are a developer by editing the script.js file and getting the desired results from the API into the HTML and then minify it. As a non-developer, You can request more profile data through https://github.com/M4N0JKUM4R/Flair-Github/issues
