Timeliner

Make a super simple, self-hosted timeline of your life by forking this repo and editing a config file.

Example: https://timeline.metamorphium.com

Why

When everyone was reflecting on their past decade at the start of 2020, I made a timeline of my past 3 decades. It was heavily inspired by Harper Reed's site.

Timelines are a fun way to visualize someone's life and get to know them quickly. You can see their life's trajectory and important highlights. This is not meant to be a resume. Have fun with it - share quirky moments and fun anecdotes!

Or just use it as a changelog template for your software. What do I care?

How

  1. Fork this repo
  2. Edit _config.yml to fill in your personal details and timeline events. Delete or update CNAME.
  3. Go to your fork's settings tab, scroll down to the GitHub Pages section, select the master branch source and click Save.
  4. Visit http://username.github.io/timeliner

This is a minimalist Jekyll template that spits out a single self-contained index.html file. To build the page yourself, run jekyll build

Who

Alternate Timelines

I think everybody should have a timeline on their site. If you write a timeline, I want to read it! Email me and I'll share it here.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
