Putting projects on portfolio

Putting projects on portfolio

I have created all of my projects using Visual Studio Code and I uploaded them to GitHub. How do I create a link that allows the viewer to see a live version of the project?

You could use Git Hub pages for that, where every branch is a project.
Take a look here https://pages.github.com/.
Just be aware that it has some problems with React router (which can be solved though) because of the way it generates the URLs (it adds # to the url).

Hi @pjmofperk, as mentioned you could use GitHub pages to showcase your projects.

I created all my projects with Brackets and cut & pasted the relevant parts into codepen. Then, in GitHub, I put a link in each projects README.md file that points to the live version on codepen. So my code is in both places but the live version is only on codepen.
One possible advantage of doing this is codepen creates large and small screen shots of your pens that can be used in your portfolio.
Access them from;
https://codepen.io/userName/pen/penName/image/large.png (for the large screenshot)
https://codepen.io/userName/pen/penName/image/small.png (for the small screenshot)

  • where you replace userName with your codepen userId and penName with the id of one of your codepen pens
