I want to show off my progress on
exercism.org from my github profile page. Currently, I can URL link my exercism user badges page
https://exercism.org/profiles/jtmoon101/badges . But this is visually uninteresting, and requires the viewer to click the link.
Allow exercism “flair” for displaying a little graphic communicating progress at exercism.
The stackoverflow flair is embeddable in many places, including
README.md files, which become automatically rendered by github and other websites.
Stackoverflow provides a little HTML code snippet too make image embedding easy
<a href="https://stackexchange.com/users/216253/jamesthomasmoon"> <img src="https://stackexchange.com/users/flair/216253.png" width="208" height="58" alt="profile for JamesThomasMoon on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites" title="profile for JamesThomasMoon on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites" /> </a>
Checkout my stackoverflow flair User JamesThomasMoon - Stack Exchange
It shows my profile pic, username, and my Stackoverflow awards in one graphic. I’ve added it to my own github personal page.
I also add it to the bottom of the primary
README.md for my projects, for example
It’s like a little business card of my Stackoverflow accomplishments. And it’s visually interesting so the reader is more tempted to click on it.
It’d be cool if excercism offered some similar “flair”; a little infographic expressing badges collected, tracks completed, overall reputation, etc.
