Adding experience and skills

This theme generates pages based on Markdown files in the path/experience directory. Your Markdown files should contain some frontmatter defining their company, logo, etc. All company logos must be relative to imagesPath/companies directory. All Skills logos must be relative to imagesPath/skills directory. All layout images must be relative to company directory, for example: imagesPath/companies/vlooping

Important

For each Skill you must add the logo of the Framework, library or program, with a resolution of width: 500px, height: 500px, in the src/images/skills/ directory I leave several logos, only Skills logos that I own are present, if the logo you need does not appear you must create it.

Layout number is for image animation you can select from 1 to 5, please do not forget to add the images “images/companies/vlooping.png, images/skills/html5.png, images/skills/react.png, images/companies/vlooping/vlooping.png” to run the following example

- Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text
- It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page
- There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available

Component shadowing

You can customize elements like the css style or about-me content by taking advantage of component shadowing.

I recommend using Coolors.co to select a color palette and adapt it to your new portfolio.

You can change the color of the text and the background of each page, for example:

// src/@christiandavid/gatsby-theme-byfolio/layout/layoutColors.css.js
import { css } from "@emotion/core"
import lineSvg from "../../../static/assets/line.svg"

const styles = css`
  .e404.layout-wrapper .layout-inner {
    background: #fff;
  }
  .e404 .data-section {
    color: #000;
  }
  .aboutme.layout-wrapper .layout-inner {
    background: #fff;
  }
  .aboutme .data-section {
    color: #000;
  }
  .aboutme .hamburgercolr::before,
  .aboutme .hamburgercolr::after,
  .e404 .hamburgercolr::before,
  .e404 .hamburgercolr::after {
    background-color: #000;
  }
  .home.layout-wrapper .layout-inner {
    background: #0e0f11;
    background: #0e0f11 url(${lineSvg}) center center fixed;
    background-size: contain;
  }
  .home.layout-wrapper h1,
  .home.layout-wrapper h2 {
    color: #fff;
  }
  .skill.layout-wrapper .layout-inner {
    color: #fff;
    background: #9d316e;
    background: url(${lineSvg}) center center fixed, linear-gradient(
        45deg,
        #9d316e,
        #de2d3e
      );
    background-size: cover;
  }
  .experience.layout-wrapper .layout-inner {
    background: #3a3d98;
    background: url(${lineSvg}) center center fixed, linear-gradient(
        45deg,
        #6f22b9,
        #3a3d98
      );
    background-size: cover;
  }
  .home .hamburgercolr::before,
  .home .hamburgercolr::after,
  .skill .hamburgercolr::before,
  .skill .hamburgercolr::after,
  .experience .hamburgercolr::before,
  .experience .hamburgercolr::after {
    background-color: #fff;
  }
  .home .btn-contact-color,
  .experience .btn-contact-color {
    color: #fff;
  }
  .aboutme .btn-contact-color,
  .e404 .btn-contact-color {
    color: #000;
  }
`

export default styles

You can change the about-me text in the “src/@christiandavid/gatsby-theme-byfolio/contentJSON/about-me.json” file, for example:

[
  {
    "subtitle": "About Me!",
    "content": "I'm a <strong>Software Developer</strong>"
  },
  {
    "subtitle": "Experience!",
    "content": "I started developing software from <strong>2004</strong> working in several companies"
  }
]
