I'm building a Partner Community in Lightning, and we have a user-specific link that I would like to get on the home page.

Simple enough to do in SalesForce Classic, just create a VF page that references the field {{user.field__c}} and then create a home page component to show that VF page.

I can't for the life of me figure out how to get this in Lightning, and feel like I'm running around in circles looking at Dev Console documentation.

Lightning components do not pick up context information automatically. You need to build it in. This page should guide you through the process: https://developer.salesforce.com/blogs/developer-relations/2015/11/building-context-aware-lightning-components.html

has:recordID can be used to get the record ID of the page the user is in, for example.
