Hi there! Welcome to my GitHub profile.

I'm shantaram, a self-taught hobbyist software engineer and open-source enthusiast from India.

I have experience in the following:

  • front-end JavaScript, with extensive experience working with the DOM APIs
  • HTML5 and CSS
  • Python (especially the standard library)
  • Bash scripting (Along with extensive experience using desktop Linux)
  • Node.js
  • C programming
  • Java programming

I'm also currently learning Svelte, TypeScript, and Rust.

Stuff I've made that I'm particularly proud of:

  • My website - Always representative of my latest HTML5 and CSS skills. Deliberately built with minimal JavaScript, functions properly even without it. [GitHub]
  • Campfire - A cozy web framework [GitHub]
  • COVID-19 Resources - A COVID-19 resource finder that draws data from a set of Google Sheets [GitHub]
  • leo - A lightweight browser for the Gemini protocol [GitHub]
  • the hugs app - A small JS webapp to send virtual hugs to your friends. [GitHub]
  • googlesheets-proxy - A simple node.js Google Sheet proxy, that downloads a sheet and passes it on with the correct CORS headers set
  • pseudows - A Windows 98-inspired fake desktop environment. [GitHub]

Some useful libraries/software I wrote:

  • bubbles - A simple animated HTML5 background.
  • alert - An alert dialog implementation.
  • mkproj - mkdir on steroids, project initialisation script written in Python.

If you're looking to reach me, you can e-mail me or use one of the means listed on my website.
