Jobless

Jobless is a simple DSL written in Ruby for generating CVs. It generates HTML files, which can be easily converted to PDF format if needed. Here's an example of Jobless code.

Jobless.cv do
  name "John Doe"
  email "john.doe@gmail.com"

  employment do
    entry do
      title "Full-stack Rails developer"
      company "Royal Programming Squad"
      start_date "April 2015"
      end_date "June 2015"
    end
    entry do
      title "C# Developer"
      company "Microsoft"
      start_date "January 2015"
      end_date "April 2015"
    end
  end
end
