Do you want a responsive, fast loading, Search Engine Optimized Website? Then read the following..

Yes I want this!! How can I get it?

  • Responsive portfolio-lap


  • Search Engine Optimized seo

If you want to see the live demo clickme

You can see the source code here - portfolio-jekyll


  • Ruby version 2.5.0 or higher, including all development headers (check your Ruby version using ruby -v)
  • RubyGems (check your Gems version using gem -v)
  • GCC and Make (check versions using gcc -v, g++ -v, and make -v)

If you don't have this then install it, Its easy!!

If the above mentioned requirements are satisfied, Now you are ready to install jekyll !!

Install Jekyll

gem install jekyll bundler

Once it is installed successfully you are ready to test my portfolio locally and make changes


  • git clone

  • once it is cloned move in to the correct directory by cd portfolio-jekyll

  • Then lets install all the bundles by bundle install

  • This sometimes shows some error, then you have to do bundle update

  • once it is done, you can type bundle exec jekyll serve

  • This will create a server at port 4000, You can visit http://localhost:4000, there you can see the website.

I took a look to your website, I like it so much! You did a great job with the "tabbed sections trick", and I like you did it all using #jekyll!
