I've been working on this project for the past couple of months and decided to really make a push to get it out after I recently got laid off due to the pandemic.
It's a portfolio generator that takes the info from your GitHub account and generates a portfolio website where you can edit the content/design and deploy to web in a few clicks: https://www.profiled.app
Would love any feedback on it from the community here and I hope it could be useful to some of you :)

I am yet to try it out. But, kudos for the idea and the product that you have built. Especially for the folks who don't have any design knowledge. An application that provides the design and only edits are needed is really helpful.
I myself was trying to code from scratch and built the portfolio. While I was able to code but the real challenge is the UI/UX. An application of this sought helps. :)
Thanks Mridu, this is largely the problem I'm trying to solve. Portfolio sites are a good way to show off your work but most developers don't have the design skills or the time to pull it off to a high standard, evenif their projects show that they can code to a high standard.
This is all teaching me a lot more about design too, which is something I really enjoy but I'm still learning UI/UX too.
Hi, I like this as well!
Was trying it and stumbled upon a small thing that doesn't let me update my details.
Thanks for sharing this, it's very cool.
Sorry about that Gabriela - I know what the issue is and I'll try and fix this ASAP.
No worries about this. I wanted to let you know just in case. :)
One more thing that I had to think about a bit, the name "profiled" makes me not want to click it if you know what I mean. I know this is NOT the profiling I am thinking off. Just wanted to share my thought on this.
Hi Gabriela - so the issue was that the number of projects you had loaded was leading to the localStorage limit being reached. Really sorry about that, I didn't think that the limit would be reached that easily but I should have tested more. I'm going to replace the localStorage with a better solution for storing larger JSON objects but in the meantime I think the only way to fix it would be to delete some of the projects (probably 5 would solve the issue, but it depends how large each one is). I know that's not a very good solution, so I'll try to fix it properly ASAP.
Re the domain name, you are actually not the first person to say that; I think people may react more to the word "profiled" in the US (I'm from the UK), especially given recent events, so that's something I may have overlooked. I might think about a name change soon.
Hi Emile, thanks. Take your time, it's your project. I will do as you suggested. I wanted to help even if a tiny bit with feedback. Regarding the name, I understand your point now. I am from Europe, and privacy is very important here as well, hence some names have some connotations.
Thanks for replying.
Good job Emile. 🙂
Initial impressions 💯
All the best!
You domain isn't loading without www prefix..
Ah yes thanks, I moved my DNS settings over to Route53 and this stopped working. Need to fix it.
Oh cool, seems you knew this before. BTW how's route53?. Whom all would you suggest to 'must have it' ?
Route 53 is fine, I use it because I need to manage DNS dynamically through the API for each site that's deployed so it works great for that. For just managing a normal website it's a bit more cumbersome than Namecheap but it's still fine.
Thank you :) - your site looks great btw
