How to build?

The following guide just briefly describes the requirements and build procedure as there are many ways to install a LaTeX distrubution on various OS. Please create an issue, if this part is not helpful.

Build Requirements

You will need some minimal Texlive distrubution (The full texlive distribution is nearly 2GB large but you will need only a part of it). A good starting point is here: https://www.latex-project.org/get/#tex-distributions

If you want to install texlive from tug.org instead, you can use this guide: https://tug.org/texlive/

Users of various Linux distrubutions can also install texlive from their repositories.

This repo also contains a texlive.profile file in the project root, that can be used to install the minimum required texlive packages when manually installing texlive.

Build Procedure

  • Clone or download this project.
  • Change to a template folder, which contains a main.tex file do
  • Edit the main.tex according to your CV credentials, optionally change settings and colors etc.
  • Run pdflatex (build/compile)
  • The main.pdf should show the output.
