Warning: New breaking changes has been introduced in the master. This guide is now outdated. It will be updated soon. Now, your site configuration files should be in data/en/sections directory and should follow this format.

The Skills section should give the viewer an idea about not only the list of skills you have but also an idea of the depth of your knowledge on a particular skill. In this post, we are going to configure the Skills section of your site.

At first, create skills.yaml files in the data directory of your site. Then, follow the following instruction.

Add Your Skills

Now, let’s add a skills section in your skills.yaml file as bellow,

skills:
- name: Kubernetes
  icon: "images/skills/kubernetes.png"
  summary: "Capable of deploying, managing application on Kubernetes. Experienced in writing Kubernetes controllers for CRDs."

Here, you have to provide name, icon, and summary fields for a skill. The summary field should provide an idea about your depth of knowledge of this particular skill.

You can use markdown syntax in the summary field.

The following image shows how the content of skills.yaml files are mapped into the Skills section.
