Hello there, Have you ever wished to have all the dev.to posts under your own domain. It's time to achieve this. I have created an open source project name dev.to-client application. So, that you can easily setup as your own. And it's highly configurable.


  • Single Page Application. So, it's really faster than you believe.
  • PWA(Progressive Web App).
  • Landing Page with latest five post according to published date.
  • List of posts page for showing all posts.
  • Clickable Tag and filtering by tag.
  • Disqus comments integration.
  • Twitter profile and timeline integration.
  • Card based cutting-edge design.

Upcoming Features

  • Search for posts
  • Dark/Night mode
  • Post category/tag showing on sidebar with filtering
  • SEO friendly page
  • Write markdown from this app for posts

How to run on local machine?

  • Fork this repository Github Repo
  • Clone it from your fork
  • Open user-config.json file and update according to your blog configuration. i.e:
  • * "dev__to_username" is you dev.to handle/username/login name.
  • * "twitter_username" is your twitter username
    • "disqus_shortname" is disqus shorname or discuss comments url prefix.
  • Run $ npm install

  • Run $ npm run serve

    Also you can try with the docker.

Deploy to VPS/any machine

  • I have included the docker file already. So, you can try with docker.

Docker Process

  • RUN sudo docker build -t iashraful/dev.to-client .
  • RUN sudo docker run -it -p 5000:80 --rm --name dev.to-client iashraful/dev.to-client You can customize the port if you need. I that case, you must need to allow the post for tcp/ip connection

Traditional Process

  • Run $ npm install
  • Run $ npm run build
  • Now tell your web server to serve from dist/ directory. You must remember to forward every request to /index.html. Because this app handles routing with Vue Router.


Happy Blogging :-)

Nice! It would be great to have it prerendered so it could be crawled perfectly by search engines. :)
