My Optimized Portfolio

Full Disclaimer: The design is not mine, but a fork of someone else’s website. (The content, optimizations and some improvements are mine though)
So, I am no web designer. It’s not that I don’t know HTML or CSS, it’s just that I am not good at designing something from scratch. As a result, my portfolio always used an HTML5 theme from somewhere. My previous design of the portfolio wasn’t exactly “dev” based, and it was difficult displaying my work there. A couple of weeks ago, I came across the site of another developer and really liked the simple design, and after asking him, I forked it and made changes to fit my requirements.
I won’t bore you with the complete details (as I already have written a detailed blog post), but I added a CMS, a custom Static Site Generator (as my requirements were small) and optimized it a lot. (It scores perfectly on lighthouse test, except for the performance which varies from 97-99).
