hugo Resume

Created from Start Bootstrap - Resume. This is basically a single-page website with auto-scrolling based on left-hand nav. Dedicated project/publications pages allow more detail. Includes a client-side search powered by fuse.js at '/search' but currently theme does not link to that anywhere. Includes an /admin endpoint that can allow authorized users to use a WYSIWYG editor and commit files back to markdown, but with a Wordpress/CMS like experience.

Data files

Data files are used for simple content presented on the homepage.


Initially projects were in their own JSON file too, but I decided I wanted to allow more detail and custom formatting. Projects are added to one of 2 subfolders of creations or contributions. The difference indicates your role as originator or colaborator. Use hugo add projects/TYPE/ to leverage the proper archetype.


Similar to projects, create them under publications. Include any papers, speaking engagements, articles, etc.

Blog / Posts

Similar to posts, create them under blog. Include any thoughts, musiings, etc. This template does not support a posts folder
