@akshat202002
I have updated the majority of npm packages to their latest versions. You can now use node v16.x.
For node versions 18 and 19, try to run this command export NODE_OPTIONS=--openssl-legacy-provider, but this is a temporary solution and not recommended.

No.
But you can follow these steps to create a site like this.

  • Create basic Next app.
  • Install ChakraUI and other related packages
  • First start with nav-bar component. Create nav-bar.
  • Then create home page component
  • Similarly create other pages one by one

Yes. I'm using custom domain for my portfolio-website but it is built with react. I'll migrate it from react to Nextjs.

i've few issues with web search indexing. I've checked your website with site:mahmad.me. It seems that your blog post links are not indexed, only some general caption for the website. Is that ok?
