Markdown CV

A jekyll-based markdown CV, which currently looks something like this, see this blog post for details. Forked from blmoore/md-cv.

How to use

To build, clone the repo and run jekyll:

jekyll serve

(You may need to install jekyll.)

If you does not have jekyll, you can also use docker

docker-compose up -d

Then point your browser to

HTML version

The HTML version is generated by Jekyll under _site using media/cv-screen.css. Most changes from the original repo are artificial:

  • more support for mobile devices
  • optimize for higher PageSpeed Insight score
  • add fadein animation and change some spacing on layout
  • messed with colours, fonts
  • now imports font-awesome icons and some fonts from Google

PDF version

To generate PDF file from the source code, you need to install wkhtmltopdf and run

wkhtmltopdf http://localhost:4000 cv.pdf

Note the separate CSS for print and screen media (see media/cv-print.css), my approach was to build a somewhat "jazzy" html version and a toned-down print version (for PDF). My changes introduce CSS3 columns in some sections which currently don't print to PDF under the blink/webkit engines (as of March 2015), so to print properly I suggest firefox.

Another problem with the PDF is pagebreaks, they're often not handled gracefully so I've added one in explicitly. Say you want a pagebreak before the section titled "education" (h2 text is set to id so use unique section headers!), the print media CSS would be:

#education {
	page-break-before: always;
