GitProfile is an easy to use portfolio builder where you can create a portfolio page automatically by just providing your GitHub username. It is built using React.js on top of Vite.js. But it’s not necessary to have knowledge on these to get you started. You can make your own copy with zero coding experience.

🛠 Installation & Setup

There are two ways to use GitProfile. Use either one.

  • Forking this repo
  • Installing as package

Forking this repo

These instructions will get you a copy of the project and deploy your portfolio online!

  • Fork repo: Click here to fork the repo so you have your own project to customize. A “fork” is a copy of a repository.

  • Rename repo:

    • If you want to host your portfolio at https://<USERNAME>.github.io, rename your forked repository to username.github.io in GitHub, where username is your GitHub username (or organization name).
    • If you want to host your portfolio at https://<USERNAME>.github.io/<REPO> (e.g. https://<USERNAME>.github.io/portfolio), rename your forked repository to <REPO> (e.g. portfolio) in GitHub.
  • Enable workflows: Go to your repo’s Actions page and enable workflows.

    Workflows

  • Base Value: Open vite.config.js, and change base‘s value.

    • If you are deploying to https://<USERNAME>.github.io, set base to '/'.

    • If you are deploying to https://<USERNAME>.github.io/<REPO> (e.g. https://<USERNAME>.github.io/portfolio), then set base to '/<REPO>/' (e.g. '/portfolio/').

    // vite.config.js
    {
      base: '/',
      // ...
    }
  • First Commit: Now commit to your main branch with your changes. The CI/CD pipeline will publish your page at the gh-pages branch automatically.

  • Change deploy branch: Go to your repo’s SettingsPagesSource and change the branch to gh-pages and click save.

Your portfolio website will be live by now. Any time you commit a change to the main branch, the website will be automatically updated.

If you see only README at your website, be sure to change your GitHub Page’s source to gh-pages branch (see how to). Also, if you face any issue rendering the website, double-check the base value in the vite.config.js.

As this is a vite project, you can also host your website to Netlify, Vercel, Heroku, or other popular services. Please refer to this doc for a detailed deployment guide to other services.

Installing as package

You can also use GitProfile by installing as an NPM package. First Install GitProfile via NPM.

npm install @arifszn/gitprofile

Or via Yarn.

yarn add @arifszn/gitprofile

Then, import the package, import and style and provide the config.

import GitProfile from '@arifszn/gitprofile';
import '@arifszn/gitprofile/dist/style.css';

function App() {
  return (
    <GitProfile
      config={{
        github: {
          username: 'arifszn',
        },
      }}
    />
  );
}

export default App;
