  • Clean and minimal design

  1. Install Gridsome CLI tool if you don't have it: npm install --global @gridsome/cli
  2. Clone the repo: git clone
  3. cd gridsome-portfolio-starter
  4. npm install (This can be a long download because of Cypress. If you don't care about testing with Cypress, remove it from package.json)
  5. gridsome develop to start a local dev server at http://localhost:8080


I have some basic end-to-end tests using Cypress. You can find them in /cypress/integration/tests.js.

To run tests, first make sure your dev server is running with gridsome develop. I'm assuming you're using the default port of 8080. If not, change the baseUrl key in the cypress.json file.

After your dev server is running, you can run npm run test or ./node_modules/.bin/cypress open to start Cypress. The Cypress electron app will run. Click the tests.js file and the tests will run in an automated browser.


  • Based on my personal portfolio website. I wanted to create an open source version with more features.
  • Check out a screencast I did where I go through the process of building my website.
  • Illustrations from unDraw
  • Search is based on Fuse.js and vue-fuse. It only searches the title and summary of posts for now. Some tweaking may be necessary to get it to search to your liking. Check out the fuse documentation for search settings. This PR added the ability to search both "Post" and "Documentation" types.
