How do I complete this project?
- Review your work against the Project Rubric (on the next page).
- When you are satisfied with your project, submit it according to the Submission Instructions on the next page.
By the end:
And your repository will include the following files:
- index.html: The main HTML document. Contains links to all of the CSS and JS resources needed to render the resume, including resumeBuilder.js.
- js/helper.js: Contains helper code needed to format the resume and build the map. It also has a few function shells for additional functionality. More on helper.js further down.
- js/resumeBuilder.js: This file is empty. You should write your code here.
- js/jQuery.js: The jQuery library.
- css/style.css: Contains all of the CSS needed to style the page.
- README.md: The GitHub readme file.
- and some images in the images directory.
Your starting point...
Within helper.js, you’ll find a large collection of strings containing snippets of HTML. Within many snippets, you’ll find placeholder data in the form of
Each string has a title that describes how it should be used. For instance,
HTMLworkStart should be the first
<div> in the Work section of the resume.
HTMLschoolLocation contains a
%data% placeholder which should be replaced with the location of one of your schools.
The resume has four distinct sections: work, education, projects and a header with biographical information. You’ll need to:
- Build four JSON objects, each one representing a different resume section. The objects that you create need to follow the schema below exactly. Property names are case-sensitive. Make sure your JSON objects are formatted correctly using JSONlint.com.
name : string role : string contacts : an object with mobile: string email: string github: string twitter: string location: string welcomeMessage: string skills: array of strings biopic: url display: function taking no parameters
schools: array of objects with name: string location: string degree: string majors: array of strings dates: integer (graduation date) url: string onlineCourses: array with title: string school: string date: integer (date finished) url: string display: function taking no parameters
jobs: array of objects with employer: string title: string location: string dates: string (works with a hyphen between them) description: string display: function taking no parameters
projects: array of objects with title: string dates: string (works with a hyphen between them) description: string images: array with string urls display: function taking no parameters
- Iterate through each JSON object and append its information to index.html in the correct section.
- First off, you’ll be using jQuery’s
selector.prepend()functions to modify index.html.
selector.append()makes an element appear at the end of a selected section.
selector.prepend()makes an element appear at the beginning of a selected section.
- Pay close attention to the ids of the
<div>s in index.html and the HTML snippets in helper.js. They’ll be very useful as jQuery selectors for
- Pay close attention to the ids of the
string.replace(old, new)to swap out all the placeholder text (e.g.
%data%) for data from your resume JSON objects.
- Here’s an example of some code that would add the location of one your companies to the page:
var formattedLocation = HTMLworkLocation.replace("%data%", work.jobs[job].location);
- Use the mockup at the page of this document as a guide for the order in which you should append elements to the page.
- The resume includes an interactive map. Do the following to add it.
- In resumeBuilder.js, append the googleMap string to
- In index.html, uncomment the Google script element:
- In helper.js, at the bottom of the file, uncomment code to initialize map and set fitBounds.
- All of your code for adding elements to the resume should be within functions. And all of your functions should be encapsulated within the same objects containing your resume data. For instance, your functions for appending work experience elements to the page should be found within the same object containing data about your work experience.
- Your resume should also
console.log()information about click locations. On line 90 in helper.js, you’ll find a jQuery onclick handler that you’ll need to modify to work with the
logClicks(x,y)function above it.
- It’s possible to make additional information show up when you click on the pins in the map. Check out line 174 in helper.js and the Google Maps API to get started.
