Add your profile data

Your profile's data model

YAML FrontMatter

YAML is a flexible, data-oriented language that is mostly used to write configuration files.

YAML FrontMatter is an optional section of YAML code on top of Markdown files to maintain metadata for a page and its contents.

The word Frontmatter comes from the term for the pages that precede the main text of a book, such as the title page and preface.

Profile Data in YAML Frontmatter

The profile cards you see on our org website's team page come from:

➡️ YAML frontmatter that is rendered

➡️ By a Vue component from

➡️ Inside a Markdown file that is parsed

➡️ By the Nuxt framework's content module.

But don't worry, you won't have to understand Nuxt or write Vue code to add your profile card

We've configured the website so that simply adding your profile to the YAML frontmatter can render your profile card on the website!
