Ever wanted to be cool? not just anyone-kind-cool but developer-kind-cool or better yet Azure-kind-cool. Do you have a project hosting on GitHub and you would like to show the status of your build? How green it has always been? You are in luck. In this short tutorial, I would like to show you guys how to easily add Azure Pipelines badge into your README on GitHub.

Simply head over to your Azure DevOps page (in this case, my page url looks like this https://dev.azure.com/poanchen/poanchen.github.io), Azure DevOps page

Next, ensure Pipeline -> Builds tab is opened. Azure DevOps page

Then, hover over to the top right corner where you can see three vertical dots. When you click on the dots, you should see an option for Status badge. Azure DevOps page

A pop-up should be on the right side where you can see options for image URL or Sample Markdown. There should be a copy button on the side. Azure DevOps page

Click on it and paste it on to your README on GitHub and you are done!!!

It is that simple.

For exmaple, it looks something like this, Build Status


Okay, do let me know in the comments below if you have any questions/concerns and I would be happy to help in any way. Good luck in adding Azure Pipelines badge to your repository on GitHub.
