Pinning items to your profile

You can pin items to your profile so other people can easily see your public gists and the public repositories you own or have contributed to.

Pinned items include important information about the item, like the number of stars a repository has received or the first few lines of a gist. Once you pin items to your profile, the "Pinned" section replaces the "Popular repositories" section on your profile.

You can reorder the items in the "Pinned" section. In the upper-right corner of a pin, click and drag the pin to a new location.

  1. In the top right corner of GitHub, click your profile photo, then click Your profile.
