Is there a way to add a link to the current repo in the Github

Most of my repos files contain instructions on how to clone / build / run / test the code:

$ git clone
$ cd app-store-validator
$ npm i
$ npm run build    #lint and build
$ npm run test     #run unit tests


The problem is that the link is repo specific i.e. if the repo was forked / committed, the README will still contain a link to my original repo. I ran into at least one case where someone was deploying a repo and then copying / pasting the installation instructions and didn't understand why there was no change.

My question is, is there a way to put a link to the current repo in the README file? Such that when cloned will point to the cloned repo?

The markdown file is static. It cannot be done.

Ask your users to copy the url from the widget in the right column:
