NuxtJS Portfolio Theme
The last iteration of my portfolio site lived on Wordpress and was built with Timber/Twig/ACF, and while that worked out perfectly for my needs, it was also a bit bloated with unneccesary Wordpress junk and still used jQuery to do a few things, knocking down my Lighthouse scores and making the site load a little bit slower. I could've lived with all of that, but then my long-time webhost almost doubled their prices without so much as an e-mail and autorenewed my plan and well...needless to say, I wasn't very happy about that. It gave me just enough righteous anger and motivation to completely rebuild my portfolio as a much more secure static site with Nuxt!
This site was designed in Sketch and built with NuxtJS/custom SASS (CSS Grid) to build out the UI. I deployed the site with Netlify, which means that I'm paying 0 dollars per year to host my now much lighter site rather than the 200ish I was hit with in 2020. In some ways I'm glad that it happened because Nuxt is a lot of fun and I'm really looking forward to building out more things with it in the future!
