Creating a personal website with ChatGPT

With ChatGPT, you can create a personal website in a very short time. By the end of this post, you can prepare a website for you even if you have never done any programming before.

ChatGPT is highly skilled in writing code, and we can use its capability to create a personal website for the purpose of introducing ourselves. Moreover, we can achieve this in a very short time and at no cost.

Why is having a personal website important?

Of course, you’re not obligated to have a personal website. However, having one allows you to introduce yourself, showcase your CV, share your career journey, and aspirations, and use it as a reference when applying for jobs.

Since websites are easily accessible and widely available, you can share this website with friends, loved ones, or potential employers to provide them with insights into your background and accomplishments.

Normally, if you want to create such a website, the simplest method would be to reach out to freelance individuals, pay a certain fee, and after a specified period, you would have the ability to own this website.

How can I have a website for myself using ChatGPT?

To have ChatGPT create a website for yourself, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the ChatGPT website and log in.
  2. Next, customize the following prompt to suit your needs and share it with ChatGPT:

Prompt

Hello, ChatGPT! I want to create my own personal website. Using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, I’d like to build a modern and professional-looking one-page website. I want to share my CV, talk about my career, and showcase what I’ve done. You can also use the canvas element if needed. Could you please prepare the index page, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code for me? I might request revisions if necessary, but I trust you to create a detailed and impressive website right from the start. Thank you!

ChatGPT will generate the basic building blocks of a website by providing you with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code that you can use to create your personalized website.

Now it’s time to test the code we received from ChatGPT and see how the website looks. For this purpose, you can use the Visual Studio Code application. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Open the Visual Studio Code application.
  2. Add the index.html and index.css files as described below and paste the code you received from ChatGPT.
  3. Right-click on the index.html file and click on the “Open With Live Server Extension” button. Live Server Extension is a Visual Studio Code extension that allows you to view HTML code online on your local machine.

This process will help you visualize how the website appears based on the code provided by ChatGPT.

Test and Edit Your Website

Once you’ve added the code from ChatGPT to the Visual Studio Code application and started examining how your website looks, you can begin the testing and editing process.

If you identify any issues, missing elements, or points that need improvement, the process is straightforward.

Return to ChatGPT and ask it to address the errors or deficiencies. ChatGPT will provide you with the corrected code through a second iteration, either sharing specific sections that need adjustment or the entire code again.

You say something like to ChatGPT “Can you change the color of the top part of the website to dark blue?” if you wish.

After receiving the updated code, all you need to do is paste it into Visual Studio Code and test the changes once more.

Repeat this process iteratively until you’ve reached the desired outcome, making adjustments and improvements along the way.

This iterative approach will allow you to refine your website step by step until it meets your vision and preferences.

As you can see, there’s no need for any coding or understanding of code in this process. While it’s beneficial to understand and write code, even if you lack these skills, you can still interact with ChatGPT in everyday language.

You can request updated code from it, and effectively use it as a software assistant, akin to having a software developer working under you, all through conversational interactions with ChatGPT.

Publishing the Website

Up to this point, we’ve had ChatGPT assist us in preparing the website, testing it locally, making design updates, incorporating desired changes, and bringing it to its final form. However, our work isn’t complete yet. Now, it’s time to publish this website.
