Resumatic

TAGLINE

"Like CSS selectors? You'll love XPath!"

WELCOME

Welcome to the most recent, Rails-flavored tool powering anthonybull.com.

BACKGROUND

This tool began life as a scratched-itch.

Years ago, I was putting up content on my site to showcase my skills while maintaining my resume in MS Word. The overlap was obvious, but I couldn't find a tool to make my resume 2HTML or 2PDF in a consistenly aesthetically-pleasing way (although Easy Resume Creator Pro gets an honorable mention.)

LinkedIn showed promise when they introduced profile-to-PDF but not having control over the visual design irked me.

And so, Resumatic was born (as a WordPress plugin in PHP.)

Why use XML and XSLT?

Having worked with such technologies (DocSouth), I understood the potential of encapsulating all data in a single source of truth - XML - and repurposing as desired using stylesheets.

The paradigm has stuck but the delivery mechanism has been updated on occasion as new web technologies emerge.

THREE STEP SETUP

  1. git clone git@github.com:inkredabull/resumatic.git
  2. rails server
  3. you're in business : http://localhost:3000

AND THEN...

  • change defaults in application controller
  • set Google Analytics ID in analytics.js
  • edit data/resume.xml (gotcha: need to have image in public/images with project title)
