Project Ideas

Ok. I'm going to list off some ideas for projects. You will have to determine if any particular idea is good enough to include in a portfolio. These aren't creative ideas. They likely already exist. Some are way too advanced while others are simplistic.

I will recommend to post any project you make to github and make a github project page for it. Explain in as much detail as possible how you made it, how it can be improved etc. Document it.

If you pick an advanced idea, setup a development roadmap and follow it. This will show some project management skills.

Another piece of advice for those who are design challenged. Use different front end frameworks and use different themes for those frameworks to provide appealing designs without looking like yet another bootstrap site.

Super long requirements document which is just not feasible for small scale projects with a single developer or even a small team. It would take more time to gather the information for this document than to complete some projects.

Shorter example from Confluence (bitbucket/atlassian) - Don't have real problems with the structure of the requirements but I know from working with their software, it isn't very easy to work with to produce useful documentation. Which makes me leary of using them as a reference.

Web Root - Mapping files on the webhost to website
View cpanel-webroot.md

public_html is the domain root, so if you have http://www.domain.com/ , the last / means 'public_html'. If you are linking to a file visible from the web you will not use public_html/ as part of the path.

First example should just be href="main.css", if it doesn't find it. Put href="/main.css".

What you are encountering is relative vs absolute paths. Note this applies to files accessed via the web not to files accessed via the file system. A relative path starts from the current directory. An absolute URL starts from the web root (public_html/) in this case.

Some examples :

public_html/

A collection of active front-end frameworks for web development.

You can Compare all front-end frameworks here: http://usablica.github.com/front-end-frameworks/compare.html All credit goes to usablica for the original list. I have removed frameworks which have gone inactive. In some cases the framework still is available but has not received updates in years.
