GitHub Hacktoberfest combined status

This badge is designed for projects hosted on GitHub which are participating in Hacktoberfest, an initiative to encourage participating in open-source projects. The badge can be added to the project readme to encourage potential contributors to review the suggested issues and to celebrate the contributions that have already been made. The badge displays three pieces of information:

  • The number of suggested issues. By default this will count open issues with the hacktoberfest label, however you can pick a different label (e.g. ?suggestion_label=good%20first%20issue).
  • The number of pull requests opened in October. This excludes any PR with the invalid label.
  • The number of days left of October.

If your GitHub badge errors, it might be because you hit GitHub's rate limits. You can increase's rate limit by adding the Shields GitHub application using your GitHub account.
