This converter allows for generating PDF files using moderncv and JSON Resume schema. A full documentation may be written at a later point but is not deemed necessary right now, as the usage will be explained in this README.
To use this converter, clone this repository using
git clone or just download the ZIP file. This converter
does not require any tools outside of the vanilla Python 3.x. That being said, it is not built to be compatible
with Python 2.x.
After downloading the repository, substitute the default (resume.json)[resume.json] file with your own file.
python main.py, or execute the main class in the
IDE of your choice.
Now, the script should generate a
resume.pdf file, which is your beautiful new resume.
As long as your file is compliant with the JSON Resume schema, and you have Latexmk, it should work without any issues.
The software handles external pictures automatically. All picture descriptions starting with "http://" or "https://" are firstly downloaded to the local directory, and then the external URLs are converted to local, relative URIs, which can be easily retrieved by LaTeX.
To customize the output, edit the main.py file.
Available customizations are: (default values in bold)
|Color||Font||Font size||Paper size||Style|
To override default values, run main.py with arguments for which you want non-default values, eg., for orange color, roman font, 12pt, letter paper, and casual style:
python main.py --color orange --font roman --font_size 12 --paper_size letterpaper --style casual
Any omitted values will take default values. To display possible values in the console, run:
python main.py --help
nb! It is possible that your
python command refers to a python version 2.x. In that case run
to force python version 3.x.
There are currently no further development plans. However, should either JSONResume or ModernCV undergo breaking changes, the repository will be updated to fix compatibility.
