A simple, modern CV / resume template. Click here to see an example.

Creating Your CV

(You need npm in order to build the project. If it's not installed, install npm from here)

  1. Install the dependencies:

    npm install
    
  2. Fill in the .json files in src/contents with your information. Click here to find out how to fill those files.

  3. Run grunt build and get your fresh CV in the HTML format from dist/index.html.

If you want it in the PDF format, you can print the page as a PDF from your browser, just like I do all the time.

Note: src/contents/color_palette.json contains the color settings of your CV. There is a fixed set of colors, and you can look at your options from that file (colorOptions field) or here or src/img/color-palette.jpg file.
