I write a lot of software, and I like sharing it with the world. So when I decided to redo my portfolio it was only natural that I release the theme itself as an open source project.
My goals for this were simple-
- look nice and modern.
- not be just a bunch of text.
- easy to maintain.
- free to host.
To that end I built a Bootstrap based Jekyll theme for hosting on Github Pages. Using the Jekyll collection features makes maintaining the site as easy as maintaining a YAML file.
The new Jekyll Portfolio Theme is available on Github and RubyGems. It is also extensively documented for anyone who wants to use it.
