Building a Portfolio/Resume Site with Gatsby, Part 2: Customizing your site and merging your changes

thtmnisamnstr profile image Gavin ・25 min read

Quick recap. My personal website sucks. I'm updating it using Gatsby and the Novela theme by narative, because it's popular, and I'm basic.

FYI, I'm using a Mac, so there may be some Mac-specific commands.


Alright, part 2, customizing your site. Part 1 was very entry-level, very basic. Part 2 is much more involved. Part 2 is where you make your site your own. Let's not waste any more time. Let's get started.

Update your site metadata

  • In Terminal, cd to your website directory
  • git checkout -b initial_customizations

Your terminal output should be something like the following.

Switched to a new branch 'initial_customizations'

  • Open gatsby-config.js in your code editor (I use Visual Studio Code)
    • Update your site metadata and save. Here's mine.
module.exports = {

Add your author info

  • Add your author info for your author page
    • Create a new file under ./content/authors/
    • Name it authors.yml and add your name, bio, avatar, featured, social parameters, and save. Here's mine.

Change the site logo

  • I'm changing the site logo to simple text by shadowing the Logo component.

I don't love how big the bio text is. I want a short bio. So I'mma add a new key to the Authors YAML, shortBio, and put that in the Featured Author section.

  • Add shortBio to the authors YAML
    • Open /content/authors/authors.yml
    • Add a short bio. Here's my authors file.

  • The correct thing to do next would be to shadow data.query.js and add the shortBio field, but that isn't working for some reason. So let's do it directly in the Novela theme module.
    • Open ./node_modules/@narative/gatsby-theme-novela/src/gatsby/data/data.query.js
    • Add shortBio to your author queries and save. Here's mine.

Add a resume page and navigation

I also want a resume page as well. I could go and create a new content type, update the query to include it, add it to createPages, ..., or I could create a static page, but I just want a resume I can write in markdown and direct-link to. Plus, I'm trying to learn Gatsby anyway, so I'm going to make a resume page by making a secret post that includes a slug.

  • Create a secret post for the resume page
    • mkdir -p './content/posts/SECRET-20200719-Resume/images/'
    • touch './content/posts/SECRET-20200719-Resume/index.md'
    • Open ./content/posts/SECRET-20200719-Resume/index.md
    • Write your resume and save make sure you set secret: true and slug: [first]-[last]-resume. Here's mine.

I also want to change the default behavior of posts to not have a hero image if one isn't defined, like in the resume post.

  • Shadow the Article.Hero.tsx section component
    • In your root directory, mkdir -p './src/@narative/gatsby-theme-novela/sections/article/'
    • cp -R './node_modules/@narative/gatsby-theme-novela/src/sections/article/' './src/@narative/gatsby-theme-novela/sections/article/'

Yes, you have to shadow all the damn files in the folder even though you really only want to change one."

  • Open './src/@narative/gatsby-theme-novela/sections/article/Article.Hero.tsx'
  • Update to not render hero image if none is specified and save. Here's mine.

Now I need to create a link to the resume in the navigation. I'm throwing in a Home L1 as well, because it looks weird without one.

  • Shadow Navigation.Header.tsx component
    • In your root directory, mkdir -p './src/@narative/gatsby-theme-novela/components/Navigation/'
    • cp './node_modules/@narative/gatsby-theme-novela/src/components/Navigation/Navigation.Header.tsx' './src/@narative/gatsby-theme-novela/components/Navigation/Navigation.Header.tsx'
    • Open ./src/@narative/gatsby-theme-novela/components/Navigation/Navigation.Header.tsx
    • Hardcode and style (I know, I'm lazy) the navigation links and save. Here's mine.

Now that we've gotten rid of the hero image, there is a gap between the author info and the resume body that I don't like. So let's fix that.

  • Shadow the article.template.tsx template
    • In your root directory, mkdir -p './src/@narative/gatsby-theme-novela/templates/'
    • cp './node_modules/@narative/gatsby-theme-novela/src/templates/article.template.tsx' './src/@narative/gatsby-theme-novela/templates/article.template.tsx'
    • Open './src/@narative/gatsby-theme-novela/templates/article.template.tsx'
    • Update the top padding on ArticleBody and save. Here's mine.

Much better. Now let's commit your changes to your repo.

Merge your changes into your repo

  • Add all new files
    • git add --all
  • Commit your changes
    • git commit -a -m "[your commit message]"
  • Push your branch to your repo on GitHub
    • git push -u origin initial_customizations

Boom! Your branch and changes have been saved to your repo. Now create a pull request on GitHub and merge your changes into the main branch.

If you got an "Authentication failed..." error even though you entered your GitHub username and password correctly, you may have to create and use a personal access token. Read this Medium blog for details on how to do that.

  • In your repo on GitHub, click on the "Pull Requests" tab Alt Text
  • Click on the "New pull request" button Alt Text
  • Click the "Compare" dropdown and select the initial_customizations branch Alt Text
  • Compare your changes
  • When you are good with all of the change made, click the "Create pull request" button Alt Text
  • Write your PR notes and click the "Create pull request" button Alt Text
  • Click the "Merge pull request" button Alt Text
  • Click the "Confirm merge" button Alt Text You should see "Pull request successfully merged and closed."
  • In Terminal, git checkout main

Boom!
Changes have been merged, and you are back on the main branch, ready to move forward.

That's it for today.
I'll post tutorial next week on how to deploy your site to Firebase and maybe how to automate deploys with GitHub Actions. We'll see what I have time to get around to.
