Truth be told, I've lost count of the number of amazing portfolio websites I've visited and been in awe of. I would try to take some inspiration from them and recreate them in my own way for my portfolio. However, after working on it for a few hours, I would come across a different design or idea and hop onto that instead.
Due to this cycle, I have over 5-6 incomplete portfolio websites on my laptop, each having a different design. I love the creativity of some websites but I just can't make up my mind and stick to one design. So, what caught my eye this time? This amazing Ubuntu-themed portfolio website.
I liked the idea so I thought of what tools do developers use. And what could be a better choice than the text editor most of us write code on: Visual Studio Code.

This is a responsive and server-side rendered portfolio website built with Next.js, one of the technologies that I mentioned in my "Technologies I'll be Learning in 2021" post.
Right from the layout to appearance, I'm aiming to build a portfolio website that looks and feels like Visual Studio Code. This includes adding some cool stuff like themes, extensions, an interactive terminal, and probably more.
As you might've noticed, most of the pages are still empty because I wanted some feedback on the layout and VSCode aspects of the design. What type of design would you like to see for the other pages? What other features would you like to see in this project? I would highly appreciate if you leave a feedback, criticism or suggestion of any kind.
The best part of the project is that since the other pages are yet to be built, you can fork the project and implement your own design which can help you stand out from the original project.
If you're interested in contributing, the project is open-source and I would appreciate any sort of help. Otherwise, you can share it or star the repo, if you want to of course.
