hmm nice tool, but seems to be buggy somehow... I installed a theme with "npm install jsonresume-theme-stackoverflow" but when I create a pdf with that theme it says: "You have to install this theme relative to the folder to use it e.g. npm install jsonresume-theme-stackoverflow"

I faced the same problem. The issue here is that "resume-cli" is installed globally and you are installing the theme locally. If you install it with -g, it will work. Resume-cli searches for the theme in the same scope where it is installed.

ok thank you, but is there a way to use it all locally? I did it with command: "./node_modules/resume-cli/build/main.js export resume.pdf --theme orbit" ..it worked, but I'd like to use it normally, and don't want to install all themes globally every time... is there some simple npx command for that maybe?

You can clone resume-cli and change its code. Adjust the way it looks for the theme.
