An online résumé you can fork and host for free on GitHub quickly and without fuss.

All the information is in the _config.yml file at the root and _data/resume.yml file. If you have all your employment and education info at the ready, you can have a free resume online in ten minutes. The only prerequisite is kind of knowing how YAML works.

It renders as a nice page. The styling is set up to print a one-page version (three most recent jobs and two most recent degrees).


  • Fully Customizable - mostly from one easy file
  • Dark mode! Also prefers-reduced-motion and prefers-contrast styling so everyone can enjoy the page
  • microdata
  • JSON resume format at /assets/data/resume.json
  • h-resume Microformat
  • 100% Lighthouse scores for Accessibility, Performance, Best Practices, and SEO
  • Scripts to turn it into PDF and Microsoft Word versions (requires local repo and pandoc)
  • Can be deployed entirely on GitHub; no node dependencies or build steps
  • Attractive-but-generic imagery for social sharing and other purposes

Getting Started

If you want, at least for the time being, to host the resume at, getting started is a two-step process:

  1. Click the 'fork' button at the top of the repo page
  2. Edit the _config.yml file in the code listing with your information
