✨ Obsidian is a minimal and lightweight portfolio template built on NextJS and TailwindCSS. ✨
First, start by clicking the ‘Use this template’ button. It will create a clone of this repository.
Then, name it whatever ya want. (Just not “animated-palm-tree” haha)
Once finished creating your new repository, enter the following command into your terminal: (replace the values with your github username and repository name from earlier and enter into that directory)
git clone https://github.com/<--USER-->/<--REPO--> cd <--FOLDER-NAME-->
Install the dependencies
Ba-da-boom! Your code is all there…. however you need to install dependencies like React, NextJS, and TailwindCSS into your project so the stuff actually works! Do so by installing them with the package manager of your choice:
# NPM npm i # Yarn yarn
Now, before you run it locally, you should edit the content first!
To do so, open the
data/config.js file and edit the values to what makes you, you!
Also, replace the image located in
public/static/profile.png with a picture of yourself! Or a cool avatar! Or just keep it the same if you are actually LeBron James! (Hey LeBron if you’re looking at this, then “hello world” to you!)
