GitHub Username Checker

This is a simple, useful tool to see which usernames have been taken or are available to be owned on GitHub:

It is made using HTML, and it works by utilising a GitHub API (‘’) that returns information about a specific GitHub user. If the user exists, information about the requested user is returned. However, if the user is not found, the server responds with a ‘404’ status.


Cool project :smiley:

I still can’t believe that “doxr” was taken, though.

Yeah lol, even my username ‘SnakeByte’ was used, and so my GitHub username had to be ‘TheSnakeByte’.
