Viccuad-cv

A XeLaTeX CV class with flexible layout

example_scaled.png

Based on the aesthetics of Adrien Friggeri CV found at github.com/afriggeri/CV.

Although the aesthetics are quite similar, it is done in a very different way:

  • no usage of TikZ package for placing text. That doesn't allow correct serialization of the text.
  • usage of Flowfram package to set the layout of the CV. This allows for having a very flexible layout with multiple frames.

The most relevant changes from his work are:

  • CV now is completely serializable.
  • the text flow follows the given frames, and spans to additional pages if necessary.
  • added automatic \pdfcreationdate population. It works in xelatex or pdflatex.

Features

  • Flexible layout.
  • Correct serialization of text, thanks to Flowfram.
  • Automatic flow of text, thanks to Flowfram. Text flow follows the given frames, and spans to additional pages if necessary.
  • XeLaTeX usage.
  • Automatic \pdfcreationdate population in XeLaTeX (there is no way to get current modification date inside XeLaTeX, this fixes it).
  • Correct A4paper layout.
  • Custom \section and \subsection. new \entrylistdated and \entrylist environments.
