JS framework to dynamically generate a portfolio site from a JSON resume

DEMO | My portfolio

Table of Contents

Features:

  • Framework generates a responsive website by reading information from resume.json
  • Adapts to different screen sizes from phones to desktops
  • Ability to choose the order of different sections
  • Ability to create multiple project sections
  • Ability to create sideshows for projects
  • All sections are optional; any section can be skipped/hidden
  • Supports personal bio, social media link, projects, work, education, volunteer work, awards sections

Sections

Display order:

The displayOrder array controls the order of sections on the website. Any section not listed in the arrays will not be displayed. Example:

"displayOrder": ["shortBio","projects", "work", "education", "awards", "volunteer", "social"]

Note: social is the profiles in the personal section.

Personal:

All the elements in personal section are optional. All the social media profiles can be listed in the profiles array. Icons are from zocial.

Example:

"personal": {
    "name": "Navdeep Sekhon",
    "title": "Software Developer",
    "email": "sekhon@navdeep.co",
    "phone": "123-456-7890",
    "website": "http://www.navdeepsekhon.com",
    "shortBio": "Hello! I am Navdeep Sekhon. I make stuff. Here's some of it.",
    "location": "Delaware",
    "profiles": [
      {
        "network": "Twitter",
        "url": "http://twitter.com/navdeepsekhon9"
      },
      {
        "network": "github",
        "url": "http://decompile.xyz"
      },
      {
        "network": "linkedin",
        "url": "https://www.linkedin.com/in/navdeepsekhon"
      },
      {
        "network": "facebook",
        "url": "facebook.com/navdeepsekhon6"
      }
    ]
  }

Projects:

This is my favourite. You can create different sections of projects and multiple projects in each section. Eg: Frontend/Backend/Mobile etc.

projectSections is an array of project section objects. Each section has a title and a list of projects.

Example:

"projectSections": [
       {
      "title": "FrontEnd",
      "projects" :[ ... ]
    },
    {
      "title": "BackEnd",
      "projects" :[ ... ]
     }
   ]

There are different kind of projects depending on what information you provide for each project.

  • If you provide an array in description, it will rendered as bullet points.
  • If you provide a string description, it will be rendered as a center aligned paragraph.
  • If you provide gallery array with a bunch of image links, it will render a slideshow of images.

Example:

  [{
        "title": "Project with bulleted description",
        "link": "https://github.com/navdeepsekhon/AndroidWeatherApp/",
        "thumbnail": "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/navdeepsekhon/portfolio-generator/master/screenshot.PNG",
        "description": [
          "Bullet 1",
          "Bullet 2"
          ...
          ]
        },
        {
          "title": "Project with image gallery",
          "thumbnail": "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/navdeepsekhon/AndroidWeatherApp/master/screenshots/tablet_mainscreen.png",
          "link": "https://github.com/navdeepsekhon/AndroidWeatherApp/",
          "description": "To create an image gallery in pop up, put the image URLs comma separated in gallery: []",
          "gallery": [
            "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/navdeepsekhon/AndroidWeatherApp/master/screenshots/phone_detailscreen_portrait.png",
            "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/navdeepsekhon/AndroidWeatherApp/master/screenshots/phone_mainscreen.png",
            ...
           ]
        }

Work/Volunteer

  • If you provide a website the organization name will be a link.
  • If you provide an array of highlights it will create a collapsible bullet list

Education/Awards

See demo portfolio for examples.

Remove "Designed By Navdeep Sekhon"

If you want to remove the "Designed By Navdeep Sekhon" at the bottom of the page(it's ok, I don't mind), just set hideDesignedBy to true.

"hideDesignedBy": true,

Contributions

Please feel free to report any bugs or send in pull request with code changes.

I love it when my work helps someone. So if you're using this project or it inspired you to build something of your own, I'd love to know! My social media is listed on my portfolio :)

Host your portfolio free using github pages :

I host my portfolio using github pages. To use the framework to make your site, you just need to change resume.json and update the RESUME_LOCATION in constants.js and you're good to go.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
