Corvus

Build Status Gittip

Corvus is an opinionated, self hosted and free Portfolio Content Management System. Corvus was created as an alternative to Hosted portfolios, which provide a way to create and customise a portfolio, but for advanced options/extras require paying.

Create a simple portfolio, link to resources, and show the world what you can do with Corvus.

Features

  • Corvus can be easily customised to make your portfolio Unique. The info, the styles, the showcase.
  • A Site Design section to choose themes/templates and a Fully integrated theme editor
  • Made to easy to use and tailored to provide what a portfolio needs to. No other bloat
  • Navigation is pre created, but you can link to anything your portfolio needs to compliment
  • Project and Work history provided a good way to showcase yourself
  • Downloads let you gift people your creations (Coming Soon)
  • You can add your Education and Skills to prove your skillset

Why choose Corvus?

  • Corvus is Free, Open source, and Self hosted. You can do virtually anything you want with it.
  • You will never have to pay for Corvus, for upgrades or extras or support. If you value the product, then Contribute or Donate.
  • Corvus was designed to manage portfolios, nothing else. You dont need 100's of plugins to make a portfolio. If it cant do what you want, Make a suggesting
  • I developed Corvus to use as my Portfolio, because I didn't like Hosted ones. If it needs new features, I will develop them.
  • Im better at programming than I am at writing this stuff (I Hope)

Installation

Optionally run vagrant ssh to access the dev environment through ssh.

php app/console doctrine:migrations:migrate
