Project Description

OneResumé is a data-driven resumé generator for text and Microsoft Word documents. Write your resumé content in YAML and quickly and easily generate multiple versions and formats of your resumé using this program.

Features

  • Keep your resumé content in simple text files and automatically generate different versions of your resumés in multiple formats (currently supports generating text and Microsoft Word .docx format resumés)
  • Allows you to break up your resumé content into multiple files, so you can pick and choose the sections you want for each generated version. For example, if you want one resumé with your publications, but want to skip them for a shorter version, you can maintain the publications list in a separate input file, and keep both generated resumés synchronized with the other content.
  • Plugin architecture, so you can easily extend to other formats (LaTex coming soon)

Usage:

OneResumé can be run in single resumé mode, or batch mode (in order to generate multiple different resumés in one go). The former usage is shown below:

one_resume.py single -t template_filename -y resumé_content_filename -o output_filename -f Text

The -f option is the format you want to use, currently either Text or Word. The templates and content files will be discussed in the next section.

If you want to run in batch mode:

one_resume.py batch -c config.yml

The config.yml configuration file is a YAML file structured as follows:

- data: sources/resumé1.yaml
  outputs:
    -
        format: Word
        template: sources/resumé-template1.docx
        output: generated/Resumé_standard.docx

- data: sources/resumé1.yaml
  outputs:
    -
        format: Text
        template: sources/resumé-template1.txt
        output: generated/Resumé_standard.txt

- data: sources/resumé1.yml
  outputs:
    -
        format: Word
        template: sources/resumé-template-short.docx
        output: generated/Resumé_short.docx

- data: sources/resumé-jobseeker.yml
  outputs:
    -
        format: Word
        template: sources/resumé-template-jobseeker.docx
        output: generated/Resumé_jobseeker.docx

In this example, we are generating 4 different resumés, 3 of which are Word format, and 1 of which is text. Three of them use the same resumé content, with one of them presumably using that content to generate a shortened version (with a different template file). The fourth one uses a customized resumé content, perhaps with different wording, to generate a specialized resumé.

Now, let’s take a look at how the resumé content and output text files are structured.

Writing Resumé Content

Resumé content is written using the YAML format. The content is broken up into sections, with each section consisting of a list (can be just a single item list) of content. The example below is pretty self-explanatory:

        summary: >

            government property.

        position: Beekeeper

            Made honey.

You can also split the content up into several different files. For example, the top level file could just be written as:

    -
        name: S. Holmes
        address: 221B Baker Street, St Marylebone, London, England
        phone: None

        www: http://www.gotcrime.com

skills: !include data_skills.yml

education: !include data_education.yml

experience: !include data_experience.yml

Writing Templates for Text Resumés

The text resumé generator uses the Mako templating engine. Here’s an example template that can be used to output the above data content into a text file:

% for contact in d["contact"]:
${contact['name']}
${contact['phone']}
${contact['email']}
${contact['www']}
% endfor
=========================================

SKILLS:
-------
% for skill in d["skills"]:
  ${skill['type']}:
    ${s._wrap(2,skill['skill_list'])}
% endfor

EDUCATION:
----------
% for e in d['education']:
  ${e['degree']} from ${e['university']} in ${e['field']} (${e['date']})
% endfor

EXPERIENCE:
----------
% for e in d['experience']:
  ${e['position']} (${e['date']})
  ${e['company']}, ${e['location']}
  -----------------------------------
    ${s._wrap(2,e['summary'])}

% endfor

The main things to note are:

  • The resume content from the YAML file is stored as a dictionary in d.
  • Each top-level entry in this dictionary is a list that can be iterated over using Mako syntax.
  • There is a helper function called s._wrap that can be used to indent some text with the given number of spaces.

Using this template, and the data content above, would yield the following text:

Writing Templates for Word Resumés

Word templates are just regular .docx files. Please note that you cannot use the old Word 97 .doc format. You can format it however you want, including bullets and styles. However, tables are not supported at this time. Here’s some simple content you might type into a word document to generate a resume from the above YAML:

[!Contact]

<[name]
[email]
[www]
[phone]
>

[Experience]
<[company] – [location] [date]
[position]
[summary]
>
[Education]
<[degree] ([university]) in [field] [date]
>
[Skills|Mad Skillls]
<[type] – [skill_list]>

The syntax is as follows:

  • Section and item names are enclosed in brackets ([ and ])
  • Looping over sections is done using the < character for starting the loop, and > for closing the loop
  • Any section name with a ! preceding it will not generate the section text (for instance, no text Contact will appear in the generated resume).
  • Using a | symbol in a section header will use the proceeding text instead of the section name in the outputted resume. So, the final section above will be rendered with a title of Mad Skills instead of Skills.

Here’s a screenshot of the template .docx (you can also find this in the repository):

And, running OneResumé on it will generate the following:

Installation

Please note that the lxml python library requires a C compiler. On Mac OS X, you need to make sure you have XCode plus the the XCode command line utilities installed:

$ xcode-select --install

Then, it’s simply a matter of:

$ pip install one_resume
