Introducing ezBadge

2015-07-10 Tags: hacking python

A few months ago I wrote about my struggles with Markdown Image Links. The entire reason why I was working on that before was to put cute little badges in my Github repos. Today I took this a whole step forward and wrote a small web application that just “does the needful” for you. ezBadge makes it easy to transform a regular Github Repo URL into a beautiful badge by writing the markdown for you and allowing you to just copy and paste it into your README.md file or anywhere else where Markdown is supported. You just feed it a valid Github repo URL and it spits out the Markdown along with a preview of what you will see if you put that markdown somewhere. So far, the only type of Badge that it makes is a CircleCI badge but I plan on adding more in the near future and if there is a badge that you would like to see, please open up an issue for this project.
