Generate your Resume with GitHub Actions

My Workflow

I made a workflow that generates my resume from a jsonresume file. I update the resume.json file and the workflow will generate an html and pdf version of my resume. It also deploys the new version of my resume to my personal site.

Submission Category:

This workflow will keep your resume up to date anywhere you need it. It's definitely a DIY Deployment.

Yaml File or Link to Code

My resume repo.

Current generation steps

  • Edit resume.json or hack/resume.html.tmpl for data or template changes
  • Create html with go run hack/template.go
  • Get pdf from browser (or use workflow)


This repo has a GitHub Actions workflow that will generate the html and pdf versions of resume.json. It will also create a release and update my personal site when a tag is pushed.

Template repo to generate your own.
