Portfolio - Digital Ocean Hackathon Submission

What I built

I have built my portfolio with Yew framework. Yew Framework❗ heard of it?🤔 It is a frontend framework written in Rust that is similar to React. It has a virtual dom and uses a diffing algorithm to do essential renders like React. It is compiled to wasm and bundled by webpack.

I wanted to try web assembly and rust for a long time. I was lacking motivation to learn and rust had a insane learning curve 😁.Also I wanted to build a portfolio for a long time. For portfolio, my first choice is next js SSG but it is not very challenging, I started building it and eventually got bored and dropped the idea. I want to challenge myself to learn WASM, rust🦀 and I believe portfolio could be the first step to try it out💪.

How I built it

My portfolio is a static site, but to generate static files, I need both rust and node js. Pretty complex to deploy 😅, but digital ocean app platform had a special option. You can deploy app with a docker container😲. It's been very long since I last wrote a Dockerfile and now it is a ideal situation for me to refresh😉 .I started building it and the only problem is only one week left to complete my submission. Let us see how I finished the app from the first link in the series, if you have not done yet.
