GitHub C.V.

View Project Site
Launched January 9, 2015

GitHub C.V. is a simple AJAX script that dynamically generates a portfolio page of your public GitHub repositories.

This was inspired by a conversation I had with Giff Constable about how platforms like GitHub have become proxies for personal website portfolios because they offer a better, unadulterated glimpse of your work. The problem, though, is that it isn’t easy to distinguish repos for projects you created from repos you simply forked but didn’t contribute to. This script solves that. Q.E.D.

There’s a saying that “If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve waited too long.” Well, this is the first version, and it’s a bit embarrassing.

Feel free to dig into the code. I would love to hear feedback on how to make improvements.
