Authors profile

Authors profile

Add yourself to the authors list

  1. Add a new object to authorsData.json with the following structure. Make sure to choose a unique author slug.

    "authorslug": {
    "name": {
    "given": "Jaimie",
    "family": "Smith"
    }
    },
  2. If you want links to your online accounts to appear in your author lockup, add any of these members to your author object.

    "jaimiesmith": {
    "name": {
    "given": "Jaimie",
    "family": "Smith"
    },
    "twitter": "jaimiesmith",
    "github": "jaimiesmith",
    "glitch": "jaimiesmith",
    "homepage": "https://jaimiesmithis.cool/",
    "descriptions": {
    "en": "Jaimie is more than meets the eye"
    },
    },
