# Replace {YOUR_USERNAME} with your actual username
git clone{YOUR_USERNAME}/neumorphism.git

Github Metadata Plugin

If you want to automatically have your Github repositories pulled for the Open Source Projects section, then you also need to authenticate yourself for the Github Metadata plugin to work.

You need to generate a new personal access token on GitHub:

  • Go to the Github Token site
  • Select the scope public_repository, and add a description.
  • Confirm and save the settings. Copy the token you see on the page.
  • Create a .env file inside your repository and add your generated JEKYLL_GITHUB_TOKEN:

To complete the configuration for the Github Metadata plugin, you also need to change the value of repository inside _config.yml. After this, you should the Github Metadata plugin should work properly.

For optimal results, you should make sure, that every Github project, you want included on this portfolio, has added following informations on Github:

  • Description
  • Homepage link, if there is a live version of it
  • Topics



Edit files inside _data to add information to the portfolio. For documentation, refer to docs/


Edit assets/particles.json to customize the landing page backgorund animation. For more information, refer to this.
