Run the migrations.
Import and extend the BaseResumePage:

After adding the model you'll need to make a migration

Head over to the Wagtail admin and create your resume!
Weasyprint generates PDFs using the absolute URL of a resume which consists of the hostname, port and path. Therefore don't forget to configure your site's host and path in the Wagtail admin interface which is located in settings -> sites. E.g when running the server locally the host should be localhost and the port should be 8000 (or whichever port you develop locally with).
Default resume fields:
- Profile picture
- Social links
- Work Experience
- Contributions (Opensource/projects)
- Writing (internal Wagtail pages or external URLs)
- Education (Degrees/Courses/Certificates)
Wagtail-resume currently supports 4 customizations:
- Heading for a section
- Icon for a section (Fontawesome)
- Font style
- Background color
- PDF generation button visibility (public, authenticated, disabled)
The background-color should be specified in hex (e.g #FFFFFF) or css supported colors and the font should be available on Google fonts. The fonts supported are only the ones from Google Fonts so make sure to check what fonts are available.
