    🌈 React for interactive command-line apps

    I am mainly using React Ink for this project. I have also written a Getting started with React Ink article which you can check out. The goal was to make a portfolio that can be viewed in the terminal. At first, I just did a console log which logged out information about me but once I found out about React Ink, I thought of using that and making it better. The advantage of using React Ink is that it is way more flexible than simple console logs and hence I was able to put custom colors (theoretically you can apply a color to a console log but options are quite limited). Using React also allowed me to make a reusable component and hence the number of fields showing up and the contents are dynamic, based on a data.json file.
