My old portfolio website looked like this 👇
Yea, I see it looks nice and cool, but I had to change it all.
That website was bloated with a combination of jQuery and React 😂 Can you beleive it?
Also, it didn't have a blog. I tried adding it there, but it was a failed attempt.
I faced weird bugs like background image not loading and stuff.
Confession: The previous website's code was created using mbrise page builder. I just took the code and React-ified it. And so, fixing stuff was hard. I didn't even know jQuery.
I didn't have the time to rebuild my portfolio website. I was creating a side-project.
I was looking for open source code already available.
Telmo open sourced his awesome website. I am really thankful he did it.
He used the below stack.
That's it. It was easy, minimal, supported dark-mode, and was more content focused. Exactly what I wanted.
I used that open source project in my website. You'll see many similarities in his and my website.
From now on, I am gonna post my content on this fine good-looking website.
