A deployment ready web app to showcase your coding portfolio.

Preview image


Codefolio is a Jamstack portfolio web application for programmers. It is built using Nuxt.js and leverages @nuxt/content module to use user data placed in /content directory and generate production ready static assets.


The entire code is written keeping modules and reusability in mind.

The primary feature of this app is it supporting static deployment. Coding portfolios doesn’t require that many changes so a static site is a better choice than a normal SPA or a Full-Stack app.

User Interface

Codefolio’s user interface is designed while keeping user friendliness in mind. It is completely responsive and uses mobile-first approach.

The design is based on the 7-1 Sass pattern and leverages partially loaded Bootstrap 5 for layout and utilities.

The assets/aprite/svg directory contains individual svg icon files. You can use these icons (or place your own svg icons in this directory) to reference icon name in <icon> vue component.


Codefolio supports custom user data. Apart from the personal details, users can also customize other cool thins such as external links and the resume button URL in the top navbar.

Content Guide

Static site generators take raw user data (usually in markdown or JSON format) to generate production ready HTML, so you’ll be needing this guide as a reference while adding your content to Codefolio.

Here’s how the structure of content folder looks like.

|	navbar.json
|	social-icons.json
|	user.json
		/* so on... */

Let’s see what each file or folder is for.

This project uses @nuxtjs/sitemap to auto generate sitemap.xml file. Please refer to their configuration guide if you need further information.


After customizing the content according to your needs, you need to deploy the app to production.

Manual deployment

Let’s see how to generate build files.

Start by cloning the repository on your local machine using git (or download it manually):

git clone

Install the dependencies

npm install

Generate build files

npm run generate

At this point you’ll have a ./build folder containing all the production ready files for deployment. You can deploy these files to some hosting server or CDN.

If you want to see the app locally run

npm run dev


You need prior github/coding experience to deploy this using github actions or some other CI/CD platform.

This is a template repository so you can just click the “Use this template” button at the top right to clone this repository. Customize content files according to your needs and head to actions tab to add required workflows. You can reuse existing ci.yml and cd.yml files.

See github actions to learn more.
