I wanted to add a link to my Github/LinkedIn account in my resume. This is how I went about doing it.

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper,ragged2e]{altacv}
\usepackage{hyperref}


\begin{document}
  \name {***}
  \tagline{Student, ****}
  \smallskip
  \personalinfo{%
    \email{****}
    \phone{****}
    \github \href{https://github.com/***username***}{github.com/***username***}
    \linkedin {linkedin.com/in/****}
  }

\begin{fullwidth}

\makecvheader

\end{fullwidth}

makecvheader is defined as -

\newcommand{\makecvheader}{
  \begingroup

    \ifdef{\@photodiameter}{\begin{minipage}{\dimexpr\linewidth-\@photodiameter-2em}}{}%
    \raggedright\color{emphasis}%
    {\Huge\bfseries\MakeUppercase{\@name}\par}
    \medskip
    {\large\bfseries\color{accent}\@tagline\par}
    \medskip
    {\footnotesize\bfseries\@personalinfo\par}
    \ifdef{\@photodiameter}{%
    \end{minipage}\hfill%
    \begin{minipage}{\@photodiameter}
    \if@normalphoto
      \includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{\@photo}
    \else
      \tikz\path[fill overzoom image={\@photo}]circle[radius=0.5\linewidth];
    \fi%
    \end{minipage}\par}{}%

  \endgroup\medskip
}

\github command takes an argument like the other commands you use in that block, so

    \github{\href{https://github.com/***username***}{github.com/***username***}}

not

    \github \href{https://github.com/***username***}{github.com/***username***}

  • Thanks a lot that worked :D Also, can you help me out with how to change the colour of the "name" field and also of the section headings, given a section is defined like.. \cvsection[page1sidebar]{Education} Feb 20, 2020 at 14:19

    @SagnikGupta, that should be a separate question.
