Status Badges

This document describes how to create a badge that displays your project’s build status (passed or failed) in a README or other document.

Adding Status Badges

Status badges are commonly embedded in project READMEs, although they can be placed in any web document. A11yWatch provides a tool to generate embed code for status badges. By default, a badge displays the status of a project’s accessibility score.
