Show a list of options and commands for the CLI.

resume init

Creates a new resume.json file in your current working directory.

Complete the resume.json with your text editor. Be sure to follow the schema (available at

resume validate

Validates your resume.json against our schema tests to ensure it complies with the standard. Tries to identify where any errors may be occurring.

resume export [fileName]

Exports your resume locally in a stylized HTML or PDF format.

A list of available themes can be found here:

Please npm install the theme you wish to use locally before attempting to export it.


  • --format <file type> Example: --format pdf
  • --theme <name> Example: --theme even

resume serve

Starts a web server that serves your local resume.json. It will live reload when you make edits to your resume.json.


  • --port <port>
  • --theme <name>

When developing themes, simply change into your theme directory and run resume serve --theme . (which tells it to run the local folder as the specified theme)

supported resume input types

  • json: via JSON.parse.
  • yaml: via yaml-js
  • quaff: if --resume is a directory, then the path is passed to quaff and the resulting json is used as the resume. quaff supports a variety of formats in the directory, including javascript modules.

resume data

  • Setting --resume - tells the cli to read resume data from standard input (stdin), and defaults --type to application/json.
  • Setting --resume <path> reads resume data from path.
  • Leaving --resume unset defaults to reading from resume.json on the current working directory.

resume mime types

Supported resume data mime types are:

  • application/json
  • text/yaml


to test the cli, run the dev script:

npm run dev -- [cli arguments can be passed after the double-dash]
