Personal portfolio page, aspiring jekyll theme.

To get started:

Make sure Ruby is installed on your computer, for detailed information on how check this link https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/documentation/installation/

  1. fork the repo

  2. If you want to utilize gh-pages hosting rename the cloned repository to follow the following format:

  1. clone the repo by running in your bash terminal/cmd, make sure to change url below to url of your own fork.
git clone https://github.com/LevytsRoman/levytsroman.github.io.git
  1. go into the folder with

    cd levytsroman.github.io
  2. run

    bundle install

    to install all the necessary gems(those are ruby libraries)

  3. run

    bundle exec jekyll serve

    this will start jekyll which will regenerate your html every time you make a change. You should now be able to navigate to http://localhost:4000 and see the site.

  4. finally open a new terminal window and run

    bash sass_watch.sh

    This will start sass and compile various sass files into css.

Now that you're up and running try changing _config.yml such as email title, linkedin url etc, restart jekyll and see your changes.

  • every time you change _config.yml you'll have to restart the server to see your changes.


Most of the content of the site comes from the _data folder.

The website is designed to have 4 sections if you want to change what they are, modify the sections.yml file inside _data folder. If you do change the sections, make sure not to change the class property, as css file rely on them being called a cetain way.

To update projects modify the projects.yml, you can add your own tags and later reference them in _includes/project_box by putting {{project.your_tag}} in the html.

If you want to use the form in the contact page, you'll need to make an account with https://formspree.io/. Then simply update the email in the _config.yml to whatever you used to register.
