Inspiration

This project is related to the "Cegeka-CV-App" project. The frustration with the CV template is twofold:

  • acquiring all the relevant information
  • entering the data in the Word template

This project focuses on the second aspect.

What it does

This project will attempt to automate the document generation based on an inputfile (json, xml ...). We will explore LaTeX to see if it is flexible/mature enough to reliably generate a CV document as pdf.

LaTeX is a flexible non-WYSIWYG document editor that generates pdf files based on "codified" text.

Depending on the progress, we might also explore how we can integrate the document generation into an application.

How I built it

We will probably use PyLaTeX to integrate the document generation in code. If that doesn't pan out, or we have spare time, we might also look at iText which is a Java library for building pdfs.
