Show HN: I want to write resume in markdown, so I build this tool (github.com/timqian)

I did something similar using Pandoc and a dedicated template: https://github.com/john-bokma/resume-pandoc

I don't get it. It's a markdown editor, of which there are a bajillion. I don't see anything that's obviously resume specific about it besides the stuff you happened to type into it.

what am i missing?

In many cases, I need a PDF version of my resume. But not much markdown editor support the md2pdf process for now.

The only web app I find supporting md2pdf is cv.ftqq.com. But it is not possible to customize themes in it. I want to make the theme customizable.

So I build this one

I'm also interested in the markdown editor. Is this something you build yourself (based on showdown) ? I also see some codemirror css in there, so it's not clear.

it is based on an open source markdown editor https://github.com/nhn/tui.editor

About the codemirror css, it is there because this editor uses it to highlight markdown code

nice editor, can see changes live and there's theme selection too

see also another discussion here on HN [1]

Thanks asicsp

And actually, there is a more related discussion here[1]. Someone has built a md2resume tool 3 years ago but it is not maintained anymore. It inspired me a lot
