This is great, thank you!! I've already forked - Its great.
Could you clarify how to make it read only, I'm not clear from the doc (I've tried the mode attribute) and can't seem to get it into read only mode.

Have you deployed a self-hosted version or is it from a profile on welovedevs.com ?

No, I have not deployed any version. But I have a profile on welovedevs.com, created it today. Is it possible to deploy the react-ultimate-resume from my profile using a custom domain name? If yes, how do I do it?

Yes !
You can export your JSONResume from welovedevs.com
Fork the open source project. Insert your JSONResume. Host it where you want. 🚀
Does it looks easy ?
I will be happy to offer more support, send me a DM on twitter : @thedamfr

I'm having a tough time updating the react-ultimate-resume. I have fork it on github, clone it on my pc, downloaded my JSONResume from welovedev profile but after making some few edits and commits I don't see the changes on the repo. Before the commit I first did 'git checkout branch -b mantoss_resume'. The whole thing is confusing. Need some help

Hi, the link provided in the project's description is no longer the link to the project, I clicked the link and it just lead me to a job-seeking company's website... hacked?

Collapse

Damien Cavaillès 💙 Author

Nope it's us. I'm replacing the link right now

Collapse

Damien Cavaillès 💙 Author

Fixed it.
The former link was to a sample profile. We made a landing page today and I replaced the link.
Thanks for the heads up 💙
And yes, our company is editing a jobboard, no worry it's still us.

Problem is, people use software to scan resumes, if you don't hand in a standard sheet in standard format, no one will look at this.

Hi Nico, there is a "download as PDF" button to get a standard sheet resume. This feature needs a bit more work but it works (some info is missing in the pdf).

Collapse

PJ Mantoss

How do I add the 'CONTACT ME' & 'DOWNLOAD AS PDF' buttons in the banner section?

After customizing colors and layouts in the app and saving, once the the app re-compiles it reverts back to the old colors. For example, the default color is blue. Then I changed everything to brown and clicked save. But once it compiles again (with browser refresh) the color returns to blue.
How can I fix this?

And I'm unable to add images to the projects card. When I tried adding, it tells me 'Uploaded successfully', but on clicking 'save' and 'stop edit' you see no images. How can this be fixed?
