Ryan Wiemer's Digital Portfolio


Ryan Wiemer's personal website is a personal project and repository that serves as his online presence. While it is primarily intended for his own use, he invites others to explore the website and its contents. The website is built using Next.js, Contentful, Tailwind CSS, and Framer Motion.


  • Next.js: Next.js is a React framework that enables server-side rendering and other powerful features for building web applications.
  • Contentful: Contentful is a headless CMS (Content Management System) that allows easy content management and delivery to different platforms.
  • Tailwind CSS: Tailwind CSS is a highly customizable CSS framework that offers a utility-first approach to building user interfaces.
  • Framer Motion: Framer Motion is an animation library for React that provides extensive flexibility and control over motion effects.

Ryan Wiemer's personal website is a self-contained project built using Next.js, Contentful, Tailwind CSS, and Framer Motion. It offers various features such as server-side rendering, content management, and animation effects. The installation process is straightforward, requiring cloning the repository, installing dependencies, and starting the development server.


Next.js is a React-based web framework that enables server-side rendering, static site generation, and other powerful features for building modern web applications.


React is a widely used JavaScript library for building user interfaces and single-page applications. It follows a component-based architecture and uses a virtual DOM to efficiently update and render UI components


Tailwind CSS is a utility-first CSS framework that provides pre-defined classes for building responsive and customizable user interfaces.


Contentful is a headless content management system (CMS) that provides a flexible and scalable platform for creating, managing, and delivering digital content across multiple channels and devices.


A portfolio website is a type of website that showcases an individual's or a company's work, skills, and accomplishments. It typically includes a gallery of images or videos, case studies, and client testimonials to provide potential clients or employers with a comprehensive overview of their experience and expertise.


ESLint is a linter for JavaScript that analyzes code to detect and report on potential problems and errors, as well as enforce consistent code style and best practices, helping developers to write cleaner, more maintainable code.

Alpine.js is a lightweight JavaScript framework that simplifies the process of creating dynamic, reactive user interfaces on the web. It uses a declarative syntax that offers a higher level of abstraction compared to vanilla JavaScript, while being more performant and easier to use than jQuery.


PostCSS is a popular open-source tool that enables web developers to transform CSS styles with JavaScript plugins. It allows for efficient processing of CSS styles, from applying vendor prefixes to improving browser compatibility, ultimately resulting in cleaner, faster, and more maintainable code.


TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript, providing optional static typing, classes, interfaces, and other features that help developers write more maintainable and scalable code. TypeScript's static typing system can catch errors at compile-time, making it easier to build and maintain large applications.
