A simple jekyll theme for simple resumes.

Plain Resume

This is a Jekyll theme for creating a simple and customizable resume. This could be used to digitally present your resume online and have it be accessible to anyone who is interested in it.

How to Install the Theme

  1. Clone the repository.
  2. Run bundle exec jekyll serve.
  3. If it compiles successfully, you can now see your resume.

Adding Data to the Resume

The resume loads data from the _data files. In this folder, you will find .yml files. This is where you will be adding entries to display on your resume.

All entries for each section begin with a -. Each line then follows a key:value format. Please see the existing .yml files for examples.

Section Layouts

Section layouts can be found in the _includes folder. Unless you know what you are doing, you usually do not want to modify these files.

Typically, a section layout will look something like this.

<div class="resume-content">

    {% if > 0 %}
    {% for award in %}
    <div class="entry">
        <h4 class="title">{{ award.title }}</h4>
        <h4 class="date">{{ award.time }}</h4>
            <li>{{ award.description }}</li>
    {% endfor %}
    {% endif %}

Adding Your Own Sections

If you need a resume section which has not been created yet. Follow these steps.

  1. Create a .yml file for your data in the _data folder.
  2. Fill in the data.
  3. Create a .html file in the _includes folder.
  4. Create a layout with respect to the rest of the template.
  5. Include it in the default.html file in layouts.


You can edit the CSS in theme.css.
