Self-hosted Sketchfab Portfolio

portfolio

(Mauricesvay) #1

Since the Sketchfab.me portfolios have been discontinued, I've made a portfolio application that you can host yourself.

Features

  • Self-hosted: it runs on your own server, with your own domain
  • All your models in one page
  • Sort by date, popularity, or views
  • Slideshow mode

If you want to customize the portfolio, you can use a Bootstrap theme, or create your own with CSS.

The application is pretty easy to install. Basically, you just download, unzip, upload to your PHP server, enter your username in the app, and you're done. Check the install instructions for more details.

Download

Download the portfolio application here: https://github.com/mauricesvay/sketchfab-portfolio

Demo

Support

The application is not officially supported by Sketchfab, but you can report any issue in this forum thread, or on the github repository.

Getting updates

You can subscribe to this forum thread to receives updates on the portfolio app development.

Version 1.1.1

Download: https://github.com/mauricesvay/sketchfab-portfolio/releases

This version includes fixes for the following bugs:

  • Models not being refreshed when clicking on "Update portfolio". A change in the API was breaking the update.
  • Sort by date/likes/views does not work since 1.1.0.

Maurice,
Is this importable into Wordpress by chance?


(Mauricesvay) #4

@arck_project there is no integration into Wordpress at the moment. What kind of integration were you thinking about?

Version 1.1.2

This release fixes an issue with updates resulting in an empty page.
To upgrade, replace the existing app files with the new ones.

Just wanted to say -thanks for this! Saves me from having to rewrite the same essential app (and I would have probably done a worse job):slight_smile:

Much appreciated!

By the way, why was the official portfolio discontinued?

The portfolio was using lots of old code that was becoming too hard to maintain alongside the main website. We also found that it was not being used by the majority of Pro users. We decided to focus our energy and resources on features and fixes for Sketchfab proper :smile:

What would cause this not to work?
It does not fetch profile information or models. I am wondering if it is the period in my username

Hi @Drakahn.Finlay,

it seems that the app was no longer working because it didn't keep up to date with the API.
I've released a new version (1.1.3) here:
https://github.com/mauricesvay/sketchfab-portfolio/releases

This version should fix the problem. The best is to delete the old app, and install the new one from scratch.
