Universal Résumé Template

Minimal and formal résumé (CV) website template for print, mobile, and desktop. The proportions are the same on the screen and paper. Built with amazing Tailwind CSS.

Letter Size Demo | A4 Size Demo | Multiple Pages Demo | Mobile Demo

How to print or save it as PDF?
In Chrome, Right-click → Print. In Firefox, File → Print. More info here.

Does it support A4 and Letter paper sizes?
Yes, replace all -letter classes with -a4, and uncomment specified code blocks. More info here.

What font does it use?
Per Butterick’s free font recommendations, I’ve chosen IBM Plex.

Why it’s made?
I couldn’t find any formal or professional résumé (CV) website with good typography that is optimized for the Web, print, PDF, and mobile. Also, researching what recruiters want, my priorities were fast scanning time and all content to fit on one page.

How to run it

Navigate to the base directory:

cd universal-resume

Install the dependencies:

npm install

Start the development server:

npm run serve

Only generate CSS that is used (which results in much smaller file size):

npm run public

Starting Point

public/index.html is the location where the content is inserted. By copy-pasting HTML — add pages, sections, subsection, etc.

npm run public will make public directory ready for drag-n-drop to, for example, (registration required beforehand).

Tailwind CSS

Tailwind CSS is a highly customizable, low-level CSS framework that gives you all of the building blocks you need to build bespoke designs without any annoying opinionated styles you have to fight to override. It has great documentation.

You rarely need to do anything outside the index.html. Compose together a bunch of pre-made utility classes that reflect a certain design system. There’s no cascade or selector specificity. This results in faster and much more pleasurable workflow, especially long-term.

Custom CSS

Code from tailwind.config.js and tailwind.css compiles to public/style.css. Default tailwind CSS is overwritten or extended with tailwind.config.js.

Here is the default tailwind config: defaultConfig.stub.js, and here’s the additional information from the tailwind documentation: theme.

If you need to change CSS in the usual way, add a class to the HTML element and write CSS inside the tailwind.css file.

Balanced Columns

Removing col-fill class will make both columns equally tall. Moreover, removing md:h-letter and md:h-letter-col classes will eliminate fixed proportions of a letter or A4 page — thereby removing unnecessary vertical space when displaying short columns.

A4 Size Variant

Change the default size (letter) to A4:

1. Inside public/index.html, replace every -letter with -a4.

2. Inside tailwind.config.js, uncomment code block below /* For A4 size */, then comment code block below /* For Letter size */

3. Inside tailwind.css, uncomment code below /* For A4 size */, then comment code below /* For Letter size */

Important: Too much content for one page will break it in form of additional columns.



Right-click → Print.
Also, choose the Save as PDF option if needed.

By expanding More Settings, change Page Size to A4 or Letter.


File → Print.

Choose A4 or Letter size by navigating to Properties → Advanced → Paper Size.

Adobe Acrobat Reader

File → Print.

By clicking on the Page Setup button, you are taken to the window to choose A4 or Letter size.

Blocking Search Engines

Disable search engine indexing by adding the following code to the document <head>:

<meta name="robots" content="noindex">
