Creating a custom badge for your GitHub App

You can replace the default badge on your GitHub App by uploading your own logo image and customizing the background.

About badges

Every GitHub App has a badge. A badge is a square image inside a circular background.

By default, a new GitHub App will use an automatically generated identicon as a badge. An identicon badge looks something like this:

After you register a GitHub App, you can customize your app's badge by uploading a logo and selecting a background color. Your logo should be a PNG, JPG, or GIF file under 1 MB in size. For the best quality rendering, we recommend an image dimension of 200 pixels by 200 pixels.
