# What is Fernfolio?
An Eleventy theme designed to simplify the process of creating a beautiful portfolio and blog. Tightly integrated with Netlify CMS for flexible, Git-powered content management.
# Why create this?
Reason #1: I wanted a portfolio that was simple, fast, accessible, and integrated with a git-powered cms. Existing templates didn't perfectly fit my needs, so I decided to build my own template.
Reason #2: I wanted to learn more about Eleventy and static site generators in general. Building Fernfolio was a good excuse to dive deeper on that topic.
# How do I edit content?
Once your site is deployed and configured, add
/admin to the end of the url (not using localhost) and hit refresh. From there, you should be able to login and see see the content management dashboard. You should be able to change most content here (e.g. page text, images, logo, articles, projects, etc.).
# Further customizations
If you want to take your customizations further, you will need to modify the project source code. Some customizations, like changing theme colors and fonts, are straightforward (those can be modified in the
variables.scss file). Other customizations will require more in-depth solutions.
If you get stuck or just have a question, feel free to create a Github issue and I will try to point you in the right direction.
