Simple, mobile-friendly, Jekyll-based resume


I created this project as an easy way for keeping my resume up to date. You can see my current resume here.

The magic lies in the data files in the _data directory. I use json to store all of my skills, work history and education including references to links and images. Then I use the Liquid templating language of Jekyll to enumerate over the json objects to generate the view.

Bootstrap takes care of the visuals. For my template I use a 24 column grid -- I find that the more columns the better for detailed work.

All CSS is compiled into one file -- including bootstrap, custom fonts & social media icons. Checkout the assets/main.scss & _sass/custom-bootstrap.scss files to see how it's all put together.

I plan to turn this template/project into an offical Jekyll theme gem with blog support. Look forward to that. In the meantime please feel free to use this project as a starting point for your Jekyll-based resume.

Try it yourself

To get this project working locally on you computer you can follow these basic steps.

Install Git

I highly recommend github's article on the subject.

Install Ruby

Mac OS and most Linux distributions come with Ruby installed. I highly recommend using rbenv to manage different ruby versions for each project.

For all other methods for installing Ruby, including Windows, check out this page.

Install Jekyll & the resume project

Installing Jekyll is quite simple once Ruby is up and running. Jekyll's official documentation is excellent, but running these commands will get you going:

git clone
cd resume
gem install jekyll bundler
bundle exec jekyll serve

Then, you should be able to see the resume at
